Indicator Problems / Electric Window Problem

    I seem to have developed a couple of problems with my A6 1.9SE

    The first relates to the indicator which seems to have stopped operating correctly. The hazzards seem fine, but when switching on the indicators they flash once then stop. I did remove the fascia where the hazard switch is and wiggled it which seemed to help for a short while which maybe suggests a bad contact? - Is this a common fault that anyone knows off - and how easy is it to remove/reseat the relay?

    In addition to the above my passenger electric window seems to have packed up - When pressing the switch you here the motor running although it is not contacting with the glass. The window itself can be relatively easily pushed up/down - again any ideas? and is it easy to get to the mechanism?

    Thanks for any help Vince

    First of all welcome to the A6 Forum.

    It can be quiet but be patient, when we come out to play theres more of us than you may think.

    I suspect that the problem with the indicators is probably a faulty stalk on the steering column.

    The passenger window is an easy problem and seems to be common acroos the Audi range.

    heres a good link for you to get further information. Its an easy job to do and further down the post you will see the part number for the offending part.


    Good luck and keep us informed

    This will 100% be the hazard light switch which is also the relay for the indicators, fairly cheap to buy and you have already removed it so you are half way there!

    Sounds like the little plastic lugs have been broken of the regulator, remove the door panel and have a butchers at it, check the bottom of the door for broken bits

    Welcome to AS too!!

    Enjoy and Merry X-mas

    Had the same problem with the indicators on an A6 1.8T, i had the same symptoms and i replaced the hazard switch in the central console. Worked fine. For reference: One way to rule out the stalk on the steering column is to turn on the headlights with the engine off and the stalk in the position for indicating left. Your left parking light should stay on, do the same for the right. If they both work then the stalk is fine.
