Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hopefully i can help..
Doubt the stalk itself would be the issue as that doesnt control the hazards..the hazard switch i recall controls or combined flasher/hazard unit,it can be quite common for those to cause issues like this - as it contains the relay that causes the hazard lamps and indicators to flash..so ideally it would be worth having your hazard switch unit replaced and see if that solves the issue..I do hope this helps
Thanks. I would normally refer to my mechanic who has serviced this car for the past 6 years but he is on holiday! I have no service manual. Where is the unit and how can I get at it ? David
The unit is part of the hazard switch..the red triangle..you need to carefully pop the surrounding trim strip off around the switch with a fine blade screwdriver..and then once off it should reveal the switch itself which is held with spring clips at either side to release to withdraw the switch out..unplug old switch..plug in the replacement..test the switch and indicators work..if soo then refit everything back in reversal of removal..I do hope this helps further
Thanks again. It is now Saturday pm and I shall not be able to get a new
switch until Monday - it is also raining and I have no garage to work in. Your advice to date has been A1 but may I wait until I have found and refitted a new unit to give my final verdict on your service ? David
