2001 A4 - Rear indicator intermittent failure

Discussion in 'A4/A4 cabriolet/S4 forum(B6 chassis)' started by imported_b4rkie, Jan 27, 2005.

  1. Hi All,

    2001 A4 B6 Tdi 130.

    Every so often I get a "rear right indicator" failure on the DIS when starting the car. If I then try and use the indicator it flicks fast for a while then kicks in and works.

    Also, on a journey home the other night the whole dashboard went black for a split second then the "rear right indicator" failure was logged again by the DIS.

    This seems like a bad earth or a dodgy connector somewhere. Ive had he rear right light cluster out and all seems ok though.

    Any other tips on where I can look or what I can do? It is booked into the garage next week but at 80 quid an hour I wouldnt mind finding it myself!!!

    Also, anyone got a wiring diagram for this car?

  3. I had this on my b5 a few days ago- swapped bulbs with the one on other side one and it started doing it on other side so the bulb was changed and is now fine.

    maybe worth a try on yours too /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif
  4. I never thought to do that!!!

    Thanks, man. Ill try that.

    In your opinion, if its not the bulb, could it be a wiring problem near the convenience ECU? This is the only thing that has changed recently, and since then the problems have occurred.


  5. I changed the bulbs over late last night and, surprise surprise, I now have the problem on the

    Il grab a new bulb today.
