So I was going over all the bulbs today and realized that on my 2wd 1990 100, there is a brake light for the driver side trunk lid but on the passenger side there is no wiring for the same bulb, and there is a formed piece inside where the bulb would normally go. Was it normal to only have a driver side brake light in the trunk lid or did somebody take the other one off my car? Thanks for the help.
Happened to me too, and he preferred that I stay in the car, not get out to see why. No ticket to fight, but I drove a little way down the road, stopped, saw the same as you, "Goddamn, there ain't no place to PUT a light, over here." Pulled that bulb, found out the facts, here.
Thought that the dealer I bought it from had replaced the trunk lid with one from a different model, came here, was set straight.
I think someone has mentioned that the dash console has a switch to turn it on or off? I think if the symbol for a light is orange , it is off, if it is yellow, it is on.
For the record, I would find the site, mebbe Audi's site, have that page show up, print and carry in the glove box. Local Audi repair shop, whom I went to to see about it, after the cop stopped me, told me they did an inspection for a lady, she got stopped, ticketed, came back really pissed off, they printed out the page of the book, she won in court, but had to, of course, pay for a lawyer. If she'd had the truth with her, coulda said, oops, must have accidently hit that button, there you go, officer, that light is out.
My daughter borrowed my car while hers was being repaired and turned the dial next to it all the way up in the summer and toasted her tush. Didn't know it was the seat warmer, hell, didn't know it had a seat warmer. most cars don't have these luxuries.
Don't you just love 'em? 5 years from now Caddies and Mercedes will have the same thing.
My 78 SAAB had seat warmers it didnâ€™t have 6 rheostat settings like an Audi but it worked. It consisted of a switch to detect someone was indeed sitting in a seat and thermo switch to turn off once it got over a certain temperature. Many new luxury cars not only have warmers but built in seat coolers as well. Nice touch for those hot in the summer and cold in the winter leader seats.
Agreed, the European cars seem to make all the advances, perfect them, then the Japanese copy, then, by'mby, the US makers adopt them.
Seat warmers in Scandinavia, sensible, keep you from freezin' your ***, Germany, from bein' just chilled, Japan, just as an accessory, I don't think it gets THAT cold, the US, well, why not, we can charge more for it.
Off hand, I have never turned it on, desensitized old fart.
