    B7 a4 2.0 tdi 170 headlight dash indicators

    I had B6 a4 and remember that when the headlights and fogs were on the lights letup on both the knob and the dash in front.

    I have a b7 now and no lights show on the dash displaywhen the headlights or fogs are on. I brought itback to dealer to check as I had a cd plAyer issue and they said the newer model does not show those lights?!!!

    So anyone have them showing in a b7 anyone not or anyone have stereo issues that could affect these electrics. I just don't believe that it would be the case!

    You can still see the icon in the display for them. Know why they removed them?
    I was thinking dodgy electrics due to clocking or something. Car is second Gand uk import to ireland
