Default Need Help With Error Light

Okay, so I got into an accident with my 2008 A4 and I paid out of pocket to have it repaired with the exception of the headlight. It would have been an extra $1000+ to replace the headlight, and all that was wrong with it was the oscillation was no longer working (something that is not significant to me especially given the terrain where I live). However, every time I start up the car this annoying light comes on.

I asked the shop where I got it fixed, and they said that Audi could Possibly fix it but the issue is that everytime the car starts up the computer system checks and realizes there is a problem with it. I really dont care about fixing the light, just getting the dash light to go away..... Is it possible to do this without fixing the light? Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

Many Thanks

Pretty sure that you need to fix it to solve the problem.

There may be a sensor you can disconnect so the computer doesn't notice (i had to do that with my gas door light), but I have no clue where it might be. Maybe someone else can chime in here.

From your picture it's looks like to me it's tell you the headlight level sensor of headlight motor is out. I guess you have the xenon light which runs adjustment motor for your headlight like Corning and level control. So there's no way to replace the level motor have to replace the whole headlight assembly and performed basic setting to adjust the headlight aim.

It's the headlight range control warning light. The vehicle automatically adjusts the height of the lights to compensate for different loads that may affect the vehicles level.
It's a safety feature to keep your path well lit so don't think it can be disabled.
