Customer Question

Hi Just purchased an Audi A8 3.0l petrol 2004 I have noticed 3 potential problems so far and wanted some advice. Firstly, for about 5/10 mins after starting I get a ticking noise from around the glove box, pretty sure its a electric fault more likely a relay and seems to be I. Time with the accelerator, I mean if I press the pedal the ticking starts on tick over no ticking noise? Secondly, in dynamic suspension mode the green light on the dash stays on, the car shaped light with a down arrow. My guess is as it's green it's surprised to be on but wanted to check. Thirdly, today I parked up left it for about 45 mins and on my return all windows were wound down, the hazard light were flashing, no alarm going (it may have sounded, and stopped but unsure) and all doors were still locked! This is a worry as if it were security you would expect a lock down not all windows to be rolled down! PS I know if you press and hold the unlock button the windows roll down but I hadn't done that and was certainly not in range to have done adversely. Thanks Matt XXXX
