    where are the fuses located for these?

    i have recently changed my heating resistor and i took my glove box out. now i have an air bag light and the glove box light doesnt turn on.
    has anyone had this problem and know a fix?

    also my boot light doesnt work. i have changed the bulb but still no luck.

    please help guys.

    thanks

    on an A3 only certain bulbs will work, i tried many before working out the right voltage to get it to work.

    the glove box you will be fine to use a normal led as the circuit turns completly off when the lid is closed.

    this led upgrade will work with no problems in there - VW/AUDI boot lamp LED SMD UPGRADE/ Golf mk4 and A3 Boot | eBay

    Thanks

    I have the same problem. Have installed tm tuning leds and all are fine except glovebox and trunk.
    Wont be anything to do with the leds as both of those lights with stock bulbs were not working before i swapped out to the leds.

    Ive checked fuse but there only seems to be one for interior lights and thats fine.
