    Don't know if it's normal but my A3 8P is the same. Triangle on 24/7. Can't think a single red LED will flat the battery though.

    Pops11, i wouldnt bother disconnecting the battery as you will then need to enter the code for the stereo, unless you have it, that it.

    I would say remove the fuse for it 1st then, plug it back in and see if that makes a difference, this should sort it, as it may just need a manual switch off, if you know what i mean, give it a go and see what happens.....

    James beat me to it, Its not normal and Lights up for a reason, Mine did it a few times but before I could get it looked at, My engine blew up - No im not refering your engine is going to blow up, Mine was down to the oil pump!!

    If the light is on then get it checked out by someone who knows what they are doing.
    Better to be safe than sorry.

    Just so you guys know, i think you are geting confused, I think he is talking about the Hazard warning ight, ie the button you press to turn on the hazards, not the ESP light or some other major fault light.

    Mine is the same, I think it does turn off though after a while, I have noticed it on though a few times, don't worry about, chillout and Relax

    It just means our cars are special :P

    And how is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?

    I noticed last night, that mine also turns off after a few minutes after I lock the car, otherwise. I always thought it was always on. Not sure why it stays on at all though really.

    The penny Dropped!!!

    The hazard light should stay on for about 4 to 5 min then go out this is normal,but if it stays on for much longer time or flickers ther is a fault poss with the cdl ecu which is fitted under passenger front floor,and check the floor is not wet aswell...

    The hazard warning light stays on for a few minutes. When it turns off this means that the car has gone to "sleep" nothing to worry about

    But it never goes out though. The battery was flat last week. Then I started to disconnect the battery every night just to avoid flat battery the next day when I want to drive the car. Any idea on the hazard flasher??? someone says that if it never goes out that means something is draining my battery.. so confused now

    Ohh My God, I have the same problem! I fell very desperate now.
    First there was faulty door locks three of them was faulty, didn't made safety the doors (you can check if you lock your car and u ar inside the car and try to open the door, if you can open the door you have lock problem, pull the grip at least 2 times with every door)
    Ok I did repaired it by myself, because I didn't want to pay 3*50 €. (I can help if you have faulty doors, just ask)
    Now there is no fault in Convenience unit but the problem is still on.
    The Hazard switch light should definitely should go out if there is everything all right.
    It drain the battery 0,7 A, I also disconnect the negative wire from the battery to don't kill my new battery (the last one is dead because of this)

    I don't know what to do now...What can cause such of problem?
    Please help.
