Are you still there?
Expert:  Anthony replied 1 year ago.

Sorry for the delay..

If you unhook your battery by the negative cable only and let it sit for 10 minutes then hook it back up and try the light is the warning still there?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Let me check that

Ill be here...

warning light still comes back on after disconnecting negative cable for more than 15 minutes

Thats really puzzling. The only option is to get a bulb from Audi and try it. The car can be really sensitive to bulbs from the parts store. Try that and let me know how it works.

It's possible, last time I replaced same bulb but on the drivers side I bought it at Audi and the problem stopped there. Good thing passenger side is not as complicated to get to as the drivers side. I will try that and get back to you, do I have to start a new conversation?

Just replay back here when you can and we can talk. Theres no need to open up a new conversation.
