you could always check your fuses. I don't think that all of those are on the same fuse... but it's a start.

If it was a Ford, I'd say ignition switch, not sure on the Audi's.


i only ask about the fuses b/c while installing a remote car starter on a G6 i was clipping a wire and the edge of my side cutter touched metal and i didn't realize it until i got everything done and the headlights, wipers, and cluster had no power. I checked the fuses and one was blown I replaced it and the world started spinning again.


a the fuses are good and I see some people say they have multi-function ignition switchs


ok well I fixed it, it was the ignition relay. took about an hour to take everything apart and put it back together and with my discount at the auto store it only costed $14.00
