Audi A1 Dashboard Light Symbols

Dashboard warnings on your Audi A1 depend on the Audi Problem. It could be an indicator light for ABS, airbag, engine light or something else. There are many reasons why the dashboard shows warning lights and below is a list of the lights on the dashboard. You might need to buy a scanner online which will show Audi trouble codes & reset the warning light for good!
If you need to reset a dashboard light or diagnose a fault on your Audi A1 we would advise you to go for the iCarsoft i908 Multi System Scanner. They are both extremely popular choice amongst Audi owners worldwide because they cover such a wide range of modules within the vehicle and has received excellent feedback from buyers.

If you need a new sensors to fix your Audi A1 such as ABS sensor, MAF, camshaft & crankshaft, visit www.bavariandominator.co.uk.

Audi A1 engine warning light (also known as MIL or EML symbol) - if the engine symbol is illuminated in your Audi A1 there is a fault within the emissions system. This is a pretty serious fault so you should check it out as soon as possible. You can diagnose this fault yourself and can do so with the iCarsoft i908 which will read & clear problem or Audi trouble codes which will remove the dashboard light when the problem has been fixed.

Audi A1 EPC warning light - if this EPC warning symbol is illuminated on your Audi A1 it indicates a fault within the engine management module and should be diagnosed immediately. You can diagnose yourself and we recommend you use the Audi iCarsoft i908 which will pinpoint the problem and allow you to clear the error or trouble codes within the engine module.

Audi A1 airbag warning light - if the airbag or SRS warning symbol lights up on your Audi A1 it indicates a fault within this system and needs to be diagnosed. If you are a UK driver and the airbag light is showing when you present your Audi A1 for an MOT it will fail. To diagnose and remove the A1 airbag light you should use our Audi iCarsoft i908 diagnostic kit which will find the airbag fault codes and allow you to remove the dash light

Audi A1 ABS Dash Light - if the ABS symbol is illuminated on your dashboard it indicates that there is a fault within the ABS system and should be checked out asap. You can diagnose the fault yourself by using the Audi iCarsoft i908 which will communicate with your Audi A1 ABS system to find the fault. Once the fault has been found and fixed you can use this scanner to clear the fault codes and then remove the dash light. The chances are you will need a new ABS sensor. If you are a UK driver and you present your vehicle with the ABS light showing for an MOT it will fail, so you will need to fix the fault before you take it to the garage.

Audi A1 glow plugs heating warning light - if your vehicle is equipped with an automatic glow plug system. The indicator lamp lights up while the glow plugs are preheating. If the engine fails to start immediately, the glow plugs have not finished preheating. In this case, keep the clutch pedal depressed (or keep your foot on the brake if your vehicle has an automatic gearbox) until the engine starts. (applies to diesel cars only) You can diagnose a fault in the glowplug system by using the iCarsoft i908.

Audi A1 coolant temperature warning light - if this coolant symbol illuminates on the dash of your Audi A1 it means that either the coolant level is too low, or the coolant temperature is too high. You should check your coolant levels, but only when the engine is switched off and has been stood for an hour to cool down after driving. Top up your coolant if you need to.

If the coolant level is correct there could be a problem with the radiator or radiator fan. You should take the Audi A1 to a professional coolant expert, but your local garage should also be able to diagnose and repair correctly.

Audi A1 max engine spped rpm warning light - if this symbol is illuminated on your Audi A1 dashboard there is a malfunction in the engine management system. In addition, the EPC indicator lamp in the instrument cluster will light up. The engine speed will be governed to the speed displayed in the driver information system. Make sure that the engine speed does not exceed the speed displayed in the driver information system, for example when shifting down a gear.

Audi A1 DPF Diesel Particulate Filter warning light - if this DPF symbol on your Audi a1 dashboard is illuminated the diesel particulate filter requires regeneration.

You can assist the self-cleaning function of the filter by driving as follows:
Drive at a speed of at least 60 km/h for about 15 minutes in 4th or 5th gear, or with the selector lever in position S on vehicles with automatic gearbox. Keep the engine speed at about 2000 rpm. As a result of the increase in temperature, the soot in the filter will be burned off.

The indicator lamp will go out once the cleaning process has been completed successfully.

If the indicator lamp does not go out, drive to a qualified workshop without delay and have the fault rectified.

Audi A1 oil warning light - if this symbol is illuminated on your Audi A1 you should check your engine oil levels before you continue to drive. If you have checked your oil levels and they are within limits you should consider changing your oil level sensor which can fail. To be sure that the oil level sensor is faulty you should use a code scanner to check.
