I've been experiencing strange behavior with the headlight switch on
my '99 A4. When I switch the lights ON, all lights (including dash
interior) work except for the actual headlamps. When I pull the
signaling stick back to flash the high-beams, they work also.
The odd thing is that once the car is warmed after about 15 minutes,
the headlamps work fine. I started playing around with the actual
headlight switch, pushing it forward and back and found that when I
pushed it forward (practically against its will :) the headlamps
What could be causing this behavior? Is the switching mechanism in
the dashboard broken, and if so how could that possibly happen?
