Question about 1998 Audi A4
I have a 1998 A4 B5 wagon - the warning beep goes off periodically. It goes once you start the car (normal) but then comes on again and again. Also the speedo drops out - needle drops to zero even though i'm flying down the highway. It's possibly related, though I can have beeps with a normal speed reading (lucky me!) Any ideas?

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.

According to a buddy of mine who did it on a 99:
Pull up on the little trim piece behind the steering wheel. Underneath it are two phillips screws. Remove them and the instrument cluster will wiggle out. You'll have to disconnect the plugs on the back of the instrument cluster. They can be a little tricky, and even moreso to reinstall. You'll see how the bulbs come out after that.

Audi TT's only take G12 coolant (vw/audi propriatary formula) you can add some distilled water to the water level to prevent the light from coming on, but as you explained you keep adding fluid (of some kind) and the warning like returns. that's a little evident that you have a leak somewhere.
put some paper towels or something under your car when you park it for the evening. when you come out the next day, pull the car away from the spot and look at the paper towels. if they have orange drops, that's your G12 coolant leaking. like McMuff460 said, check all the clamps/hoses for signs of the leak. if you don't find anything i reccomend taking it to a shop for them to check out. Your water pump might be on it's way out.
Don't ever put any other fluid other than G12 coolant and distilled water into your car's coolant system. It will cause some major issues with seals, leaks, and cooling performance.

i had the same problem on my g/f's 2000 lancer GLXi, (with tacho),
i fixed the problem by putting a jump wire on the back of the instrument cluster,
the fault was in the wiring to the tacho part & i drew up my own wiring diagrams for the cluster unit,
then traced the fault,
looking @ the back of the cluster unit, the top right hand screw for the speedometer,,, follow the track on the circuit-board, there is a link wire UNDER the board (there is a dotted line on top where it goes, i think its the left 1,,, there is 2) this track then goes to the bottom left screw on the tacho,,,
i soldered a small gauge wire from the bottom of the link solder joint (MAKE SURE ITS THE CORRECT LINK, THERE IS 2 SIDE BY SIDE) to the bottom right track on the vertical plug socket (its common pos for the warning lights) this is where the "MIRAGE" & other "CE LANCER" (without tacho) gets its speedometer & gauges power from,
kind regards waz
if anyone needs a photo i will pull out the dash again lol its only 6 screws

CAR ALARM ISSUES
can be any of the car doors not got properly locked or the door is locked but
the switch is not sensing the door locked. Open and close each door again
else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact
with alarm wiring causing it to happen.
last thing alarm connections need to be inspected. It's getting short somewhere
are few help links with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems.
