fan and headlights out

Recommended Posts

This evening I found that both my headlights and my climate control fan had stopped working. They both were working fine yesterday. My car is a 2003 911 Carrera cabriolet. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thank you in advance.

Problem with the electrical part of the ignition switch seems plausible, this does happen regularly with ignition switches between MY 1996 and 2005. A replacement is the solution, there is definitely a DIY here, use the search button on top of the page.

I ordered the replacement switch online for $20. After giving clerk at Advance Auto Parts the part number he informed me that the part would be $365 but that "it has AUDI stamped on it". I said thanks but no thanks. You have no idea how much I appreciate your help in this matter.

Read this http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/29137-996-ignition-switch-replace-just-the-switch-with-pictures/page-2?hl=%2Bignition+%2Bswitch+%2Bfailure#entry235910 I suspect the 365.00 dollar is the price for a complete switch and lock mecanism, you only need the electric part of it. It may be that AUDI is stamped on, this switch is used on multiple brands and types of VAG group.

After considering this Flanders, I believe you are correct. The picture on the monitor at the auto parts dealer did show the entire switch along with keys. Thank you for your input and help. I believe my $20 part will suffice quite nicely.
