    2001 Audi A3 1.8T AUM 8L

    Hi Guys

    I think there is an electrial problem with my vehicle. I got it plugged in this weekend and it showed as sensor faults. i also then discovered my reverse lights werent working and the fuses keep blowing when i change it. i also then discovered that my climate control lights are very dim. the interior lights on the buttons of my vehicle dont work anymore. some one correct me of i am wrong in saying, that the sensors will pick up as faulty if there is a problem along the loom. i dont want to spend R2400 on sensors and when i put them on they still dont make a difference because there is a problem with the wiring loom somewhere. can some please advice me on this topic. Thanks guys.....

    Listing the fault code would help dude but in essence yeah... faulty wiring can trigger erroneous sensor faults... earths under the battery tray are a classic...

    List the result of a vcds scan mate...
