Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I'd 1st check that the connections to the gas discharge control module behind each lamp as these are high power connections and can corrode, check and clean the earth connections for each module
Sorry but I'm in the UK so was in bed at the time
how can I help, have you investigated the connections as I've suggested?
OK thanks for the extra information, I'd say that this sounds like a faulty ignitor unit for the gas discharge headlamps
this is a seperate box that is just behind each headlamp and the wires run from the loom, into the ignitor box an onto the headlamp
thats the correct part, I've known ignitor units to fail like this so they only work for a few moments then switch off as they overheat
you can just squeeze the ignitor out without removing the headlamp but its far easier with it out
and the buzzer is only wired to the switch and not through the headlights themselves so really its a buzzer for the 'lights left in the on position'
I understand your question, but yes you're correct that is not normal
if the car has aftermarket lights then these can be wired differently?
if its the original Audi unit then its likely the fault is related to a faulty ignitor unit
do you still need help?
