Re: Replacing dash lights
You may be able to reach the bulbs from the back of the instrument panel, you will need to remove any lower panels that block access, if they can't be removed from the back then you will have to R&R the instrument cluster assy and any other unit that has defective bulbs, make sure you get the correct repacement bulbs, they may look the same but have diffwerent luminosity ratings, wrong bulb will be to dim or to bright and hot burning, this can damage the bulb socket, check your owners manual for more info.

need to check the ignition control unit under the dash. its right behind the dash. if you have had a water leak it is the first part to go. when you turn the key you should hear it click. sends power to the dash.lights gauges etc.
The vehicle would seem to lose power as the transmission has gone into 'safe mode' and the transmission control module has detected a fault in the transmission hence the flashing gear display. you need to get someone in a dealer or someone that has the technology to plug into the car and find out what the problem in the trans is. hope this helps.
The most likely cause is a faulty oil pressure switch as there are up to 3 fitted get it checked ASAP could be low oil pressure!!
I take it this is the oil light flashing not "oil" in the dash insert ?
Hi pojo_nz,The fuses should be in the same place as my 95 Audi A4,open the drivers door and look at the end of the dash right in front of you,there is a plastic cover,pull it off its just clipped on and you will find the fuses there.
YOU HAVE 3 BUTTONS ON THE DASH (RIGHT HAND SIDE) YOU WILL HAVE ONE WITH A SPANNER (BUTTON A) AND ONE THAT HAS TWO 00 (BUTTON B).....HOLD A,SWITCH IGNITION ON,RELEASE A.PRESS B UNTIL DISPLAY CLEARS..MAY TAKE A FEW GOES BUT YOU WILL GET IT...
as far as your interir lights the most likely cause is a bad door ajar switch.
the brake light that is on i assume is the red one...this can also be on because of a bad parking brake switch..if it is the yellow oe you need to have your anti lock brake system checked
For the dash display, if you're finding it to be intermittent, where it lights up sometimes and other times it doesn't, or if you have the driver information center that displays all kinds of info, but it's missing pixels, this is a common failure. The only fix is to buy another one, and they're very expensive (around $700).
As for the heater, turn on the system by hitting Auto or one of the fan speed buttons. Use the + and - buttons below the temp display to change the temp setting. If the heat doesn't heat up very well, you may have either a thermostat stuck open, or a failed heater core.
