View Full Version : 1998 B5 Audi A4: Right rear emergency light not working?

01-09-2011, 04:57 AM
My right rear emergency light is not working but my left one is? I also bought a new bulb but it still doesn't work. Anyone know why? And also is there any way of showing the time on the radio?

By rear emergency light I am assuming you mean rear fog light......on stock tail lights there is only a rear fog light on the drivers side, so everything is perfectly normal.

Also, I'm fairly certain that you, unfortunately, can't get the time to show on the radio.

chill, it's a valid question.

OP, silverstreak is right, you only have a rear fog on the left side.

For the longest time, the one rear fog bugged the wazoo out of me! Until I actually bought my A4, I assumed that Audi didn't know how to wire up light bulbs properly cause more than half of the A4s you see on the road in the clearest nights always had one tail light so much brighter than the other! Always drove me crazy, but then after reading my manual I saw that people are just stupid and like pressing buttons on there center consol.

You can wire those rear fogs by joining two wires to turn on with your brake light. As most people dont live in windy fog prone conditions as they do in europe in just about every country where a rear fog would be helpful

I get so many calls from my friends.

"Hey dude just wanted to tell you your tail light it out. I'm just looking out for you and don't want you to get pulled over"
