Hey man, gotta quick question. 02 Audi 1.8t.. about a week ago my left blinker went out, then a few days later my left headlight ran out also. I took it to the shop Saturday July 5th, 2006 they fixed it everything was pretty normal. Yesterday July 7th I had the triptonic gear box on and noticed that the gear box was downshifting on its own so i put the gear up and it drove normal, but then it started acting up again so i pulled over and put it back on automatic till i got home. I woke up and it didn't do that anymore. Today, July 8th, the left blinker went out again. Whats up with that??
P.S. The night it was down shifting on it's own, it kept beeping and instead of where it tell you how many miles you have left on your tank it was a blinking 2:00 just like that with a mini two on top. Note: normally it tell you how many miles per gallon you have left and there a small number one.
Blinker issue has to due with the hazard relay switch, just got mine replaced works fine now. The 2:00 is telling you've been driving for two hours, you have more then one setting you can use for that window. one is to show you how many hours you've been driving to let you know you may want to take a break etc... it comes on at two hours and then at three it will flash 3:00 etc... another option for that window is to tell you how many miles you have left before you run out of gas..and yet another is as a triptometer I believe you can put in the number of miles you know that your trip will be and watch it count down, I've never used that one so don't quote me on it. I personally like the gas count down the best. Hope this helps good luck.

I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.
Is your car somewhere where you can sit in the car and see the headlight beams? Put the headlights on and turn the key. If the headlights go dim like a glow worm, your battery is flat.
That can be caused by a few things.
Something electrical left on in the car. Charge it up, or get a jump.
Faulty battery. New one.
Worn out battery, they last 5 years. New one.
You say it worked 2 weeks ago? That makes me believe that your battery is flat and worn out. For a few quid, you can get a battery charger at Halfords, and if you are going to be leaving the vehicle for extended periods, you might like to invest in a battery maintainer. These connect to the battery and provide a small tickle charge to keep the battery topped up. They use little power.
If the headlights stay bright, then the solenoid or starter is at fault. You will need one or the other replaced.
fuel petcock screen may b clogged or u may have a soft fuel line n it's collapsing. drain tank n remove petcock n replace fuel lines it's a good idea to do every year with this crappy gas these days it eats everything.
I am pretty sure it is the body control module. My 02 sable is currently having a similar issue. On a random day my girlfriend took the car to the store, the car started honking when she went to re-enter the vehicle. never done that before. Later that night the left front turn signal will not shut off. the turn signal light on the dash stays on solid, this morning the bright light indicator was on solid and the turn signals worked perfectly fine until the blinker light eventually went back to on all the time. I disconnect the battery at night or if I am not going to drive it for a few hours. But I am 99% certain it is the BCM causing this.
