Well that's a good thing. Sounds like a partial power lose. I am going to give you some areas I want you to test for power. The HVAC control head has two 12v power supplies.

When you get time, I want you to test these wires on the HVAC control head connector. #1-Black/red(hot in run/start) and then #2-white/yellow(hot with load reduction relay energized).

Audi Mechanic: David Gieswein,

Lets concentrate on one system at a time. I picked the HVAC control head because it is probably easiest to get to.

Audi Mechanic: David Gieswein,

Ok excellent. Also check for continuity to ground on the two brown wires. They are the grounds for the circuits involved.

I will keep this as simple as possible for you so if don't understand at anytime please say something! Would you like more troubleshooting tests for the other downed systems?

Audi Mechanic: David Gieswein,

When you say wires got caught in the fan do you mean the radiator fan? Did those wires go to the a/c pressure switch?
