>Water temp. gauge inoperative
>ABS light on all the time (no ABS deactivate switch on this car)

BTDT even got t-shirt:o)

Fuse number 13 is burnt (or I thing it's 13, fuse next to abs fuse, my urS4
is in service). This fuse has taillights and interior lights etc. in it, but
due to complicated electrical system, somehow current finds it way to all
lights. ABS goes propably off because rear lock is in fuse 13 and it in same
circuit with abs.

If it's fuse 13, there is one other sympton. Interior light don't go off
when you start engine all doors closed. It'll wait normal timeout. Fuse will
most likely burn due to dirty or damaged connectors. Check if there has been
rear-end collision.

Inform me if I was correct. I want to know if this "lights working without
fuse" is common :o)
