I've checked the relevant fuse but keeps blowing
Answered Jun 14, 2021 (2 years ago)
If blowing the fuses , either what you are putting in is overloading the fuse or you have a short .
Answered Jun 14, 2021 (2 years ago)
Must be a short, how do I resolve this theb?
Answered Jun 14, 2021 (2 years ago)
Could be a faulty socket , but there are a good few independent Audi garages in Glasgow that could check it out for you and keeps you away from the dealership prices for diagnosing / fixing . Or if you know a good auto electrician that would help .

Can you recommend any independent Audi Garages in the Glasgow area please?

Another mate used these for his Porsche but do Audis also .

Depends where in Glasgow you are and which one is handiest / cheapest , worth phoning all first and comparing .
