Indicators on when side light on!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all I bought a Audi a3 sport tdi 2004 . Every time I put the side lights on the indicators are permanently on. 

I have heard some people do it through vadcom. 

 

How do I get it sorted as I don' want to get pulled by police when it' dark. 

 

It only happens when side lights on.

Hello Anthony,

Sorry to hear about your problems. 

Stab in the dark! (couldn't resist that), but have a look at the flexible wiring harness which is visible when you open the hatchback. Carefully strip back the covering and examine the wires themselves. The wires become brittle as the hatch is opened and closed - particularly in the cold winter months, and bare wires can touch and cause issues such as this. 

Let us know if it's not and we will have another stab at it. 

Kind regards,

Gareth.

Cheers Gareth will have a look when I get a chance. Be glad when I got it sorted I got to the car this morning and noticed I lost coolant. Do head gaskets go on these engines?

In the old days before electronics and canbus and computers were fitted to cars, that sort of problem was usually caused by a bad earth at the lamp unit.

It says that a front left fog light is not working on the dash but when I checked both are not working. So think its a electrical fault. 

 

Are the fog lights akward to change?
