    Both roller type switches on my 2004 a3 don't work. The dash lights are on but dim and the headlight height adjuster does nothing aswell. Where do i start? Would like to test it before buying another set of switches but not sure what wire does what. Could it also be a fuse?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    I am also having the same problem.
    Cannot find a blown fuse and have replaced the full switch pack, but to no avail.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yeah borrowed a switch from a friends car and it didn't work. Put my switch into her A3 and it worked no problems. Did your two rollers stop working at the same time?
    In my case the headlight roller stopped working a long time before the brightness roller did.

    I'm also having a similar problem, but basically the dash and console lights don't fail completely, they just fade to the lowest light whenever they want to! If I knock the headlight switch they come back up full and the adjuster works ok again

    any ideas?
