    Flashing alarm LED on door cards (Should they both work)

    Just noticed that only the drivers door alarm led on the door card works.

    Should the one on the passenger side work too?

    As above, there's only one on the drivers door as far as I'm aware. Iy may look like there's one on the passenger side, but don't think it's an led.

    Strange - neither the 2003 S4 Avant nor 2004 S4 Avant I've owned had one on the drivers side, and neither did the 2004 TDi 130 Sport Avant (and neither does my 2006 RS4 Avant) - all only had/have an LED on the drivers side.

    certainly is, my previous 2 A4's had only one LED in the drivers door. My brother-in-law has a 2003 A6 and he has one in the drivers door only too.

    I wondered if its a left over from mainland Europe where they are fitted to drivers door which would be on the left. The loom would support left or right hand drive and because of that support 2 and in the factory 2 may get fitted by mistake, hard to believe the Germans would make a mistake though.

    I don't think the German's have a word for "mistake," and instead refer to these occurrences as "unique features." hahaha

    It'd be a new door card at least, which already makes it seem like a lot of work ha.

    It looked moulded in to me, but maybe it's an insert. Wouldn't be as bad if it was an insert, you're right.
