Scott, do you know of a fix for this? Any way i can check relays? Locations? Coz this is really stumped me as to why its drawing power while the car is off...when its unplugged i get the warning about no bulbs on that quarter but when its plugged in warnings go away but just stays on...i am waiting for vcds to come in the post so ill see what that tells me and post on here. Should i just buy another headlight unit and try that?

Default Part Numbers?



OK, there are several flavors of headlamp depending on features. What are the P/Ns of yours. Should be on labels top corner fender side:

Yeah, I can't tell what headlight model you have from that label. Perhaps the other one is in better shape? I don't want to speculate what your problem could be without knowing what type of headlight you have. You could probably get the whole light assembly off eBay for less than $300, but you would have to have the correct p/n!

OK, this clears up a lot. You're in the UK, Land of Right Hand Drive and you have a very early D3 A8 with, as you said, bog standard halogen headlamps. Unfortunately, I've never seen such a configuration config over here, so I'm not gonna be much help. Perhaps this will - you can get a second hand part cheap as chips, if you want to try swapping:
