    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!

    Mine doesnt have it in the clocks only on the switch itself.

    Im sure i read it can be activated using vagcom (i mean the light icon not the fogs)

    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

    right digging around and yes you can have what you want

    Enabling headlight lamp in Instrument cluster

    Audi A4 B7

    Go to the Instrument Cluster module (17)
    Make a note of the coding
    -2 form the coding in the ?? part - 00??xxx

    Mine was 0006411 , recoded to 0004411 and voila the instrument cluster sidelight lamp lights up.
