re: Dead instrument panel and dash lights
>From Matt West <firstname.lastname@example.org>, on 2/23/96 12:01 PM:
Thanks to everyone you mailed me and welcomed me to the Quattro list
the other day. I now have a problem with my 1989 Audi Coupe that I
hope someone can help me with.
All the back-lighting lamps in the main instrument panel, heater
controls and auxiliary instrument panel have died. As they all went
together it would indicate that a fuse has blown, rather than bulb
failure. The fuse (which also protects other circuits) in the main
fuse box is OK.
Does anyone know where I should check next ?
Are there any hidden in-line fuses that protect this circuit ?
Could it be the connection to the side light circuit that activates
the instrument panel lighting and if so, where is this connection
I had a similar problem on my ex-'90 90 sedan, where all the instruments in
the main pod stopped instrumenting (lights continued to light
non-functional gauges). turned out ot be corrosion on the back of the fuse
panel, less than $25 to diag, and the fix was free(!!! at the dealer, no
