It's the switch. The switches go bad and you need to buy a whole new one. not a tough fix though. About $175 for the new one.

The ignition key does not return to the original position. You will find that the indicators is also not working. Just turn the key back a bit after you started the car.

Well, I can't for the life of me figure out what the Hell you're talking about.. but either way, buy a new switch and everything will work again. Don't waste your time playing with the ignition because it has absolutely zero to do with your problem. The stalk goes bad sometimes, blame it on audi electronics if you will. If you play with it you'll probably see your cruise doesn't work either... usually the sign before the lights stop working.

Actually the ignition can cause the problem sometimes. I found my headlights and turn signals only worked with the key turned on but not with the engine started. Having already cleaned the contacts on the light switch, I walked out, started my car and the lights didn't work. While the car was running, I turned the key back just a little and they came on.

please how does anyone fix this problem? im buying a car and NEED to get this fixed ASAP as i got to drive it 800 KM home. Please HELP!
