What’s The Problem With The Audi 2019 e-Tron?
A faulty seal on the charging socket can let moisture penetrate the high-voltage battery system. This can cause a short-circuit and increase the risk of fire. For your own safety, if you see warning lights along with a message, “Electrical system: fault,” cease driving immediately. Do not charge the car as well. Audi is recommending that those who are getting the warning to contact Audi Roadside Assistance at 1-800-411-9988 to have your vehicle towed safely.
