Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I was driving on a highway when I received an error message on instrument panel stating left dipped headlight was out. Low beams are now flickering when in idle and when in motion.

When driving my car has what is and should be a recall with the given number of complaints regarding this issue of "right or left dipped headlight." Audi of America is quite aware but this is not just any recall this is a safety concern and like windshield and airbags should be looked into quite seriously.

Malfunction and failure of both xenon front headlights while driving vehicle. Lights consistently would flicker and then at two different times both headlights went out leaving the driver to pull over at a high rate of speed completely in the dark. Contacted Audi to fix the problem and they would not do anything about it. Very dangerous safety issue when traveling at 75 miles per hour in a dark stretch of I70 and both of your headlights go out. If the weather would have been bad it could have been a different result.

Malfunction in 2007 Audi A4 causes headlights to flicker, then go out completely, resulting in a "dipped headlight" error message on the dash board. Have to turn headlights off completely and turn back on the correct the problem. Fixing the problem is not covered under warranty and replacing bulbs and other parts doesn't seem to repair the issue for long.

2007 Audi A4 - "left main headlight" error and left headlight goes out. Problem is intermittent. Dealer has replaced the headlight and still has the problem. Dealer says no errors are in the system, but I took a picture of the dash display with the error. The problem has been happening for almost a year, and frequency is almost every time I drive it. This is a safety issue because I randomly lose my front left headlight. Looking on the internet shows that it can happen to either or both headlights for many people. Please consider forcing Audi to figure out the problem and recall these vehicles for a permanent fix. Thanks.

Under normal driving conditions, the xenon headlights experience common failure. Since vehicle purchase, the headlights have failed to illuminate on multiple occasions. The error "left dipped headlight" appears on the dash information display. Dealer service requires replacement of either xenon bulb or xenon ballast as per Audi tsb for issue.
