    I've just noticed my 2014 3.0 Quattro s-line has the red 'door open' warning lights, and the ground illumination lights under the doors, but none are working. On my C5, these and footwell illuminators came on when the door was opened.
    I'm assuming there is a coding in the central convenience module that's been set wrong, and/or it's been turned off?
    I can't find anything in the handbook regarding these....
    Anyone got any ideas?
    Cheers!

    Not checked anything yet, I assumed as nothing works, and the car is very low mileage, it was a settings issue. Could be a fuse, but chances of every bulb blown unlikely.
    However, I have been Googling this, and other older Audis with this problem have dummy reflectors fitted, but no wiring or bulbs. They need the lighting pack fitted to work. Saying that, I would expect a 2014 s-line to have all this as standard?

    I suspect they are dummy reflectors. Easy enough to pop out and check using a flat head screwdriver

    its an Audi - you expected this to be standard??

    I thought they all had lights and the lighting/ambient pack gave you leds instead old fashion halogen type bulbs.

    As standard on the A6 (pre and post facelift) you get passive red reflectors and puddle lights for the front doors only. The Lighting Package adds illumiated red lights (and I think puddle lights for the rear doors). As others have said don't expect too much as standard on an Audi!

    Yes, that seems like what I have. The rear puddle lights are not even blanked, they just haven't been punched out of the door cards. All 4 doors have red reflectors, and all 4 footwells have lights. (hadn't notice these due to interior lighting!)
