I had a similar problem, it drove me mad, but i found it to be the fuse in the black box that connects to your + battery terminal, Just open up the box & check 4 a break in the metal strip. You can always disconnect the fuse & bolt lead on to end of fuse terminal (remove the fuse box) & drive your car to see if it happens again.

SOURCE: Audi A4 strange beeping

I just had the same problem and read on another post how to fix it. Unlock your car, open and close all the doors, and lock it manually with your key. It worked.

SOURCE: Coolant light on an AUDI TT 2000

It sounds like it is low on coolant. Coolant expands when it warms up so if it is just low enough to trip the switch when it is cold it will shut the light off when it warms up. You should be ok to just top it off but be sure that what you put in is compatible with what is in it. There must also be a leak somewhere in the system for you to have lost some to begin with. Depending on how many miles you have on the car it wouldn't hurt to have the cooling system flushed if it's never been done before. If you do get it flushed take it to the dealer to have it done. Explain to them the low coolant and have them check the system for leaks at the same time. Hope this helps

SOURCE: when i start my car it just cuts off again this happens a few times then works fine, also after a few miles of driving the abs warning light comes on my car is an N reg audi A4 automatic 1.8

Hi, I had the same problem. it is the imoboliser, it reads a code in your key while starting. you need to get the code in the key reprogramed. if that wont work you will need to get a new ignition barrel. Audi dealer will reprogram your key.

SOURCE: Audi 1.8T sport Auto (2001) heavy smoke and engine buring smell

The engine could be shot, oil is being burnt off by the actions of being sucked into the bores via worn piston rings then ejected out of the exhaust

If you sent the car in for an MOT and a Service I would ask the garage what they did to it as the car would have failed on its emissions test if that much oil was coming out .

It could have been a fault on the oil pump or lack of oil in the first instance and maybe an overfill on the service

You paid your money now go back for redress

Check thermostat first. Maybe not the problem but new thermostat and housing gasket are very cheap and with this many miles it wouldn't hurt to install new one anyway. Just a little labor.

Most cars have to reach operating temp before working right, when the heat comes out of the dash, you are at operating temp. Or about 1 mile down the road, before that , you are still running in choke mode, everything is trying to get the engine temp up, including your trans. And it will stay in low gear till it warms up. This is the easy fix, if that is not the problem, then you have a problem with the computer or TCM, Hope this helps.
