If there isn't, there is a problem with the wiring, if there is there is a problem in the headlight. For cars equipped with auto-levelling sensors, the sensors themselves are located in the wheel wheels near the lower control arms so they can adjust the headlight aiming based on the suspension My guess is when you switch to high beam the car expects it to be a different bulb and not the same one, which causes the error. Tom July 13, 2015 @ 5:59 PM tom here again, i'm having the opposite issue everyone else seems to have and can't find a fix anywhere. http://da4design.com/audi-tt/audi-tt-trunk-light-not-working.php
I'm thinking I can purchase the parts and have someone else install? Unfortunately my pass side headlight swivel module appears to have failed. If you are lowered, you may just need to bend the upper part of the bracket so the top of the sensor is higher again. As has been said, these things run at over 23kv on start up, so can give you more than just a belt. look at this site
Thanks Nick Roshon January 7, 2016 @ 9:37 AM Hi Taybin - thanks for the comment, didn't realize the products I linked to are no longer carried by Amazon. This is part of why it is so difficult to troubleshoot and fix on your own, as the error doesn’t give you much information about what the problem is. Check your connections first where the adapter of the aftermarket ballast plugs in, otherwise you may want to order a new ballast… Bart January 26, 2015 @ 7:34 PM Hey Nick, NephewTX November 14, 2014 @ 4:09 PM I have a 2006 Audi A4 the left side dipped headlamp a couple years back and I begrudgingly replaced it at the dealer, $350
I have to turn my car off completely and let it sit for a minute or two, to get them both to come back on again. I believe it would be easier to replace the ballast first rather than open up the headlight. The "Ballast" I'm referring to is screwed to the side of the lighting assembly - which sends wires to the igniter, a white box which resides inside the assembly, below the There is a manual adjusters on top of the headlight you can adjust with a flathead that I would start with, you can get some decent adjustment out of that and
Looking closely at the headlight I could see the projector lens on my driver side was pushed forward and not aligned the same way my passenger side was, so I reached Fault stayed on the right. Thanks in advance. When the DRL's are disabled and the lights are off they work when pulling on the high beam lever.

Nick Roshon November 19, 2014 @ 7:57 PM My S4 has something similiar, my guess is that bulb is intended for different (non UK) markets, hence why it doesn't light up this page Disconnect your battery and let the car sit if you're really worried about it, although I didn't… Chris November 18, 2014 @ 12:12 AM Hey Nick - your post is really Once you have inspected and either repaired or replaced the sensor, you will need to recalibrate it using vag-com. Is the car throwing any codes or warning lights that give you an additional info when you scan via Vag-com? Audi Tt Mk1 Xenon Headlights
So helpful and a great read. Check connections at the back of the headlight unit - they should be safe and no more than around 12V. Any further suggestions? get redirected here I find it happens more often when the car is cold and even more so when it has been raining.
Probably not the news you wanted to hear :/ Pat Carney October 30, 2014 @ 11:35 AM I have the warning light on the LCD screen in my c5 Allroad. Michael February 21, 2015 @ 12:17 PM Hi, I have a 2011 A6 advant, s-line with zenon lights. If you heard of it and know anything about it??

Graham November 19, 2014 @ 2:51 AM Hi, my UK spec 2009 TT roadster has Xenon Plus adaptive headlights, which are very good.
Thanks in advance joe olson March 27, 2015 @ 3:58 PM Hi I have a 2003 audi a4 1.8t and my driver side headlight went out. The simplest thing to do is to replace the headlight bulbs, followed by your headlight sensor in your front wheel well if you have adaptive/auto-leveling xenon headlights. I am now into another 3 months without the issue with no explanation from mechanic or Audi.. useful reference Are the headlights adaptive?
Never noticed left right. Andrew April 13, 2015 @ 1:07 PM Hey there, like the blog. Replace it and you may well find the headlight starts to work fine again. Lights are on auto all the time.
I am really nervous about picking the wrong ones. Curious I turned the car back on and the light isn't working again. I'd suggest that the sidelight might be causing the problem. High beams work perfect.
Thanks Nick Roshon August 7, 2013 @ 4:33 PM Zak - it can definitely be worth it, it kind of depends on how much they're asking for it and how long I'm stumped myself. IF you wish to register and receive this message please email [email protected] to get instructions how to rectify this issue and join the site. I installed the new one using double sided tape, it has been 6 month now and no problems.
If I turn the lights off and back on it will work again for a few minutes. So problem solved.
