hi this could be a few things but more than likely it is either the MAF sensor or MAP sensor, these things do roughly the same thing, but the MAP also adjusts the timing through the ECM , either one would cause this to "over fuel" and not burn correctly, the starting place would be try the MAF first as this is the common one, make sure spark plugs have been changed as this also will help, if you still get a fail, then try the MAP sensor...hope this helps good luck..
The ESP switch turns the electronic stability control program on and off.
The ESP assists in your maintaining control of the vehicle when the vehicle loses or is about to lose adhesion with the road surface from the front, the rear or both ends. The program includes selective braking and brake release to individual wheels.
As you have this handling/control feature, you should not run the vehicle with the ESP turned off as long as it is functioning properly. If there is a fault in the system you will normally get a warning display on the dash.

No it can't - Audi is known for pixellation problems with the dashboard display panels on the information center. They're an expensive part (I've heard $700 in conjunction with having them replaced). There also, unfortunately, isn't a fix for it. On top of that, you could use one out of a salvaged car (such as a place like www.shokan.com - Audi salvage yard in upstate NY), but it won't just bolt in - the panel is driven by the computer, so you need to have the new dash sync'ed to the car's ECU (dealer may have to handle that for you).
It's unfortunate, but that problem has no easy or inexpensive fix.
This is a known issue on these cars - they get "pixellated" as it's called. It's a manufacturing defect that Audi has so far ignored and refused to take care of for its owners. The only real fix for it at this time is to replace the information display (big-time pain) or to replace the entire instrument cluster, which is costly and requires the cluster and ECU to be flashed to work together. Honestly the best bet is to just deal with it for now. A large number of A4 enthusiasts are petitioning Audi to take care of the repair, but although so far it hasn't borne fruit, they're keeping at it and are trying to get some results.
For the dash display, if you're finding it to be intermittent, where it lights up sometimes and other times it doesn't, or if you have the driver information center that displays all kinds of info, but it's missing pixels, this is a common failure. The only fix is to buy another one, and they're very expensive (around $700).
As for the heater, turn on the system by hitting Auto or one of the fan speed buttons. Use the + and - buttons below the temp display to change the temp setting. If the heat doesn't heat up very well, you may have either a thermostat stuck open, or a failed heater core.
