have replaced the ignition switch 3 times since january 1996. the switch has a position that controls the turn signals and windshield wipers. one of the failure modes i have experienced allows the car to start and run put disconnects the turn signals and wipers. i find this out in traffic when i need those elements. audi will not acknowledge this problem, but i notice the latest switch seems to have been strengthened where it was breaking previously. i find it hard to believe that i'm the only audi owner who has experienced failures with this switch.

my problem is same as the one described in nhtsa campaign #96 v017000. i called my dealer as well as audi service at 1-800-822-2834 and was told that my vehicle was not part of recall even though it shows same problem & that i would have to take care of this problem. my vehicle is same as described in the campaign #v96v017000. i feel this malfunction should be taken care by audi. i contacted nhtsa' hotline and the gentlemen suggested that i requested in this questionnaire the reopening of this campaign & an investigation of this problem. thank you!*ak
