I've been a lurker for a while and this forum has helped me out massively a few times so thanks for that. I am, however, a bit stuck and feel like I'm running in circles.
I've got a few issues with my 2007 A3 2.0 TDi S line Sportback. Firstly, a while back I had an engine management light appear on the dash. I had it checked out and saved the info on my phone, only to have to restore the phone so I lost the data. From memory the message said something about manifold flaps I think? The person diagnosing said it wasn't a major issue but that I should take a part off and clean it, it should fix the problem. Again, I saved the info, part name etc, on my phone, but lost it due to the restore.
Onto another issue; my Concert 2 stereo has totally packed up. No display, it doesn't switch on. So I did some checks on the fuses (I have the engine bay fuse box with 30 fuses in). I found that Fuse 8 was intact. I removed the stereo and the small 10A mini fuse on the unit is also intact. I then noticed that Fuse 24 (10A) in the fuse box had blown.
The research I've done leads me to believe that Fuse 24 has something to do with my first problem. I still have no idea what is causing the stereo fault.
Can anyone shed some light on both issues for me, please? Like which part I need to look at regarding the manifold flap issue, and what might be causing the stereo problem. I'm thinking they're not linked but I would really appreciate some advice from the experts.
Thanks in advance.
