Question about 2000 Audi A6
The temperature sensor is usually located where coolant flows through like around the thermostat housing. It would have two wires. To check it, unplug the wire connector while the engine is cold. (Makes sure the ignition key is off or it would throw a code).Use a multimeter to measure it's resistance. On a cold engine it should be a few thousand ohms. Now plug it back then start the engine. Let the engine warm to normal operating temp. Turn the engine off then measure the resistance again. You should get a much different reading this time (usually a few hundred ohms). If not then the sensor is bad. Also check if the wires are bad make sure there is no looses or damaged connection. The only time computer develop problem is due to mechanic mistakes by improper testing procedure. Other than that computers are very reliable. Also computer can develop problem by improper way of boosting a dead battery. The proper way should be to start the car doing the boosting, connect the cables then let the car with the dead battery charge a few minutes before cranking it.

Check the Fuel Pump Relay. behind the battery next to the OVP Over Voltage Protection Relay. They do fail. Occasionally the engine will not start when hot. This becomes more frequent until you are left stranded. If you are comfortable with jumping two terminals you can jump terminals 7 & 8 test the relay. if the car starts your Fuel pump relay is bad.
