That's how the car was built - until the midyear facelift in 99 (the 99.5 model), the dash lights were always illuminated. Even with VagCom I haven't seen a way to disable this - the car is hardwired to light up the dash with the key on.

Is there a swtich to turn off the parking lights in a Audi 98 A4?

Your stalk controls the indicators and the parking light, if you turn the engine off and the stalk is in either the left or right turning signal position your parking light remains on, this will also send a signal from the dash to remind you the light is on, I would say that the turning signal stalk needs replacing.

What does a light on the dash mean that flashes yellow,has a pic of a car and a key with a line tru a4 96plate

Katielouiser I have the same icon come on each time i start my 1996 Audi A4 and if I don't wait till it goes off before starting the car it will immobilise the engine soon after starting. But if I wait till it goes off before proceeding with starting, the engine will continue to run till I stop and turn the ignition off- only to repeat this all over again when I have to drive somewhere again. It can be a pain when ones in a hurry, and embrassing to say the least when you have passengers.

Setting the clock on an Audi A4 '98 1.8s

If it's an analog clock, pull out on the stalk closest to it (the small one protruding from the cluster), and then turn it to the right - that will advance the clock.

I don't have a manual for my 2002 A4. My dash

I'm not 100% sure what it is but you can find out yourself. Turn the ignition on (but don't start the car), and Watch all the lights that will come and stay on for a while. If you don't find any other light like the one you have on, resembling a servise light, THEN it would be your check engine/service light.. Good luck
