    a6 c5 problems help please!!

    looking for some expert advice here guys, i have two problems,

    1. fuel reading in car is incorrect, with a full tank the needle goes way past full marker and when tank is empty it show around 1 quarter..... its like the needle has moved slightly clockwise.

    2. cannot get my glovebox light to work, i have checked everything including the light holder and that works but still no luck!

    its 1.9 tdi 2004 c5




    hope somebody can help

    thanks

    hi there my c5 1.8T does exactly the same as yours on the fuel gauge! first time it got to quater bloody ran :-( out still showing 70miles on trip. So i would be intrested if someone can shed some light on this aswell.
    refrence your glove box light i take it you checked for a live & earth to it?if its got both then has to be bulb or the light unit itself.
    p.s im loving your motor i havent had mine long so i just started but need to get new rims as the guy i bought it off ran along every kerb ha ha.

    Hi guys,

    Can it be recalibrated through Ross Tech/ vcds ???

    Also, check the switch in the glove box to make sure it's making contact to illuminate the bulb?

    I have VCDS and I'm not afraid to use it, well, a little bit?
