Loss of electrics
The lower centre part of the console has no power to it. There is no illumination of the display etc for the aircon/blower controls. Basically the fan/aircon controls are dead. I've checked the fuses in the offside fusebox accessible with the door open and all seems well? My car is a 2000 S3.

I think you need to see if there's any voltage at the rear of the AirCon unit.
According to my super-Haynes manual that I got today! (I think there will be a safe commonality of connections between the standard A3 and the S3 in this respect) you need to check terminals D15, brown wire for (-) and D9 black/blue for (+).
This is the start, let me know what you get and we'll go from there...
