A6 avant 40 tdi courtesy light


Registered User
Hi, need some help .

Does any one no if and how you can turn your interior courtesy lights on when you unlock the car and open the doors.

I have looked at car settings and settings and cannot find out how to do it .
I have read the manual and it does not say how to do it.
Only a problem when its dark and would like the lights on inside when entering the car .
I no there is a button at the front near the sos button which turns them on, but surely there is a function which when you open the doors the lights come on.
Maybe I have missed something.
Any help would be appreciated.

On my car the interior lights come on when I unlock, initially jsut the driver's light and then if you open other doors those come on as well. You need to activate the button near the SOS button which has a "door" symbol and it may be that the headlight switch needs to be in the "Auto" setting (that is needed for the external lights to come on when you unlock)

Yup, also may I suggest a good read of your manual. It isn't being wimpy or non manly but will provide you with much information you need to operate your vehicle correctly and safely...
