I fixed those wires by the trunk hinge with electrical tape, which had no
influence on the dash lights. 
According to fuse housing it is fuse #12 - of 15 amperes for the
differential warning lights, and fuse #14 of 5 amperes for instrument panel.

1986 Audi Turbo Quattro, Toronto

Subject: '86 5KTQ instrument cluster lights out

The instrument cluster lights on  my '86 5KTQ went out last night as I
pulled into the driveway. The lights on the diff. lock control panel also
went out.

I checked the fuse panel under the hood and all fuses look fine.

I've read about a kink on the wires near or at the trunk lid that causes the
instrument cluster lights to go out but not sure about which models it

Thanks in advance for your input!!
