Asked by Jan 12, 2017 at 09:27 AM about the 2008 Audi A6 3.2 quattro Sedan AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello,
       I drive a 2008 Audi A6-Quattro, I have had this issue where the rear
lights on the right side stops working when the weather is wet or foggy, esp.
in the morning and it works just find if it is under sun. I tried to take a look
and found nothing wrong with the connectors or wires, no corrosion at all. It
happens every morning it is getting on my nerve, hence seek you
expertise. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you
Rohit

It clear that most moisture is getting in and causing the issue, buy some bulb and lamp dielectric grease and follow the instructions on the package and this should help...

grease

Thank you Joemom, I will definitely try it and update the post. Never thought about this solution though, I always thought it has something to do with the wires/cables or the connectors. I will definitely try this though. Thanks again.

I tried dielectric grease and it worked for couple of days but this morning it is back at it again. Wonder what is the issue; like you mentioned it has definitely something to do with moisture but how and where.
