    Angry Electric fault...

    A3 Quattro 1.8t
    2000

    basicaly when I brake, a loud annoying beep sounds and displays a "bulb out" symbol on the dash the rear de-mister flashes on when the brakes are pressed, also rear wiper don't work it's temperamental, if you open up the boot with the headlamps on, the rear boot interior lights flicker and a ticking noise comes from a black box located near the 6 cd changer and bass box.

    any ideas ? All bulbs work fine also. It's making me veery annoyed and I may sell it as this beep drives me crazy.

    cheers, Joey.

    Behind the subwoofer/cd changer is like an earthing point, may need redoing, as I had some funny dash problems many years ago, and it was that!

    CD changer is easy, sub is tricky, you may be able to get to it with sub in situ? Don't remember off the top of my head.

    Good work, can't be that much of a common problem if I've never heard it before on here?!
