SOURCE: fuel cap light
You need someone with VAGCOM (the VW/Audi diagnostic software) to turn the light off. Try to find an independent Euro shop rather than a dealer, as they generally charge less. The previous owner of my A4 had to pay an hour's labor for them to turn off an airbag light (a 3 minute procedure).

you have a leak in the fuel evaporative emission system. The fuel light flashes when the gas tank and system is not sealed, and the purge control cant **** vacuum or hold vacuum in the tank. Usually its the gas cap not sealing the tank correctly, the "activated charcoal canister shut off valve" wont completely close the system, or the "purge control valve" under the hood isnt opening/pulsing correctly enough for the engine manifold vacuum to create the vacuum in the gas tank

Most likely it is the ignition switch (the key ignition switch) in the steering column ($100 at a dealer).
It may be a loose negative battery ground cable, too.
Check the negative battery cable where it conencts to the engine ground. It may be loose, corroded, damaged, or otherwise not making a good ground contact.
Add a grounding strap ($11 - AutoZone) from the engine to the chassis. That may help, but it's most likely the ignition switch.

there is often a small back up battery in the immobiliser unit itself, if you can locate this unit and replace the battery with the ignition on / engine running, then it should not need recoding and work fine after that. The other thing that could be wrong is the key battery (if the fob has one) or the transponder chip in the key head. If the key signal is low the immobiliser lamp will light during driving, but this does not explain the alarm going off. That is more likely either a poor vehicle battery, alarm / immobiliser back up battery, or another electrical fault such as water leakage into a tail-light or even the alarm unit itself when it rains. A lot of alarms are voltage sensing and when the vehicle is parked they will alarm if the battery voltage changes for any reason, though not during driving so the battery in the immob is my first choice to look at.
