Recall From: Volkswagen of America, Inc.

Models: Audi A4 Years: 1996-1997

Number Involved: 27,900

Dates of Manufacture: October 1995 - August 1997

Defect: On certain passenger vehicles, the plastic ignition switch housing can fracture at the return spring anchor point. Fracture of the housing could cause the return spring force to be insufficient to return the ignition key to the running position after starting the engine. This condition causes electrical accessories such as windshield wipers and headlights to become inoperative.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the ignition switch. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 25, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Audi at 1-800-822-2834.
