Question ID: 468128
I have noticed over the last few years on Audi vehicles that sometimes they will have a red taillight on the left side that shines brighter than the normal running taillights, almost like an error message. The light in question is always to the inside on the left side in the rear. I have seen this on many different models (especially A6-A8's) that are anywhere from 15 years old to almost brand new. What does the light mean? Is it some sort of diagnostic code? Please help solve this mystery that is bugging me.

Hello rennaisanzmn, when I read your question I thought it sounded strange. I believe that I have found the answer. http://groups-beta.google.com/group/rec.autos.makers.vw.watercooled/browse_thread/thread/9496544ca56d569f/f060f4061455a7e9?q=Audi+Tail+light+left+brighter&_done=%2Fgroups%3Fhl%3Den%26q%3DAudi+Tail+light+left+brighter%26qt_s%3DSearch+Groups%26&_doneTitle=Back+to+Search&&d#f060f4061455a7e9 Last weekend I checked out an Audi A4 Avant wagon. The dealer said that there is a REAR fog light (red, left rear only) on the Audi. It is allegedly much brighter than the standard tail lights. After reading this I searched further and found this: http://www.audiworld.com/model/a8/00/specs.shtml Rear fog light (integrated in left rear light cluster) http://www.thepartsbin.com/repsite/audi~tail_light_assembly~reparts.html http://www.audiworld.com/tech/ext20.shtml Rear Fog Light Modification This is a good picture of exactly what you describe. Hope this solves your mystery, Redhoss

Great! Not as "mysterious" as I hoped the answer would be, what an odd feature, I thought it was a defect. One less thing to wonder about, although now I wonder if it makes a difference in fog... Oh well, another question another day. Thank you!
