Got my new A6 a month ago and have been loving everything about it until yesterday after work, when I noticed a warning on the dash about a busted left turn signal/brake light/rear light. Checked the rear lights and saw that the turn signal & brake light were actually working fine. Today morning when I started the car in my garage, the warning was gone. But this evening it came back after I started the car (was parked outside in the polar weather we've had) and again the lights were actually working fine
Has anyone had this issue ? I hate to be taking the car to service shop a month after buying it but will do tomorrow :-(
Got the same warning today. I'm DC and it's been unusually cold as well. I've been sending pics of random issues like this to firstname.lastname@example.org. If u send email documenting the issue and attach pic they will open up a trouble ticket and keep it on file. They will also notify your dealership so when you bring your car in you won't show them what the problem is. I've sent a few things in. I plan on dropping off car next week to address all my issues With respect this issue, I'm not sure if it's a one off thing since it's super cold although Audi builds for winter climate.
Wow, I literally had this same exactl issue a few hours ago. It happened on startup. I was able to turn the car off, and back on, and it didn't reappear. It was about 5 degrees out. Glad I'm not the only one, but it seems these vehicles have an issue.
I'm kinda glad to know that it is not an isolated issue. I did send an email to audicare. Maybe I will not rush to the dealer tomorrow but instead wait for a reply from Audi instead. Maybe it's a software fix needed from Audi ?
I live in San Diego and we are experiencing a lot of cold as well, at night we go all the way down to the 60s, it is freezing!!!!!!
Well now that you are mad at me, let me explain that I like to go to the mountains every year to ski, and my Porsche cayenne does this really weird things at cold temperature, warnings and ghost alerts.
As far as I know with cold temperatures sensors become more sensitive, it could be just a glitch due to the unusual cold.
There is a way to fix it, park the car, pack your bags and come south and don't come back until May (you know you want to)

Kind of crazy. This issue along with green hazing in my camera system, side assist system turning odd whenever it wants....I'm going to the dealer next week. I know they will check everything and say its fine. Luckily I have taken pics like OP and some videos too.
My 2014 tdi has been in for servicing twice for same warning message Car is there right now for this and FOB issue (getting a replacement FOB). Advisor says that AOA is aware but no fix so nothing will be done. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
Well, car was in for servicing for a full week early January and was told that the service dept could not duplicate the "Left turn/signal brake light/real light warning" message. The same message (as well as for the right side) has appeared each the morning over the past week (temp 31deg and below). Car going back to service next week. Anyone have any updates on fixing this? It is really annoying to spend 60g plus for a car and have something as simple as a warning light not getting fixed.
