when ignition switch does not kick from the start to the run position the starter remains engaged. once in the key is manually moved into the run position if not in the exact position the following systems don't work: head lights, wipers, turn-signals, power windows, rear defrost, side mirrors defrost, air-conditioner / heat system. audi has recalled 24,000 models from '94 - '96 to fix this problem. when i contacted the manufacturer they said i was not part of the recall and that i would have to go to the dealer. the dealer has been very unresponsive to my problems in the past so i thought i would start from the top and go down. thank you for your time. alan toler. *ak

Cumming, GA

pumps are made of hard brittle plastic which fails in heat/cold engine bay. cracks in the pump body allow the washer fluid to drain (suddenly) leaving no ability to clear the windshield of bugs/salt. dealer reports that this is a very common problem and keeps a ready supply of replacements on hand. however cost ($60) of parts and difficulty of access (1hr disassembly/reassembly, $80+) makes this an expensive failure. i believe a price concession should be offered for out-of-warranty failures at less than reasonable life failures.
