Yes it will come back soon and you will have to change it anyway. Better to change it anyway as may cause major damage as per some post in this forum. I had the message and it went away.....but came back next day and stayed since...
My S5 has developed an issue where the cooling fan is continuing to run after the engine is switched off. It wasn't for too long, before this bit of hot weather, but the other day it ran for so long it killed the battery. Had to get it started and take it to the garage. They changed a temp sensor which was apparently reading wrong but the fan was still running. They managed to diagnose it as the Offside cooling fan control module. They want £560 plus labour to rectify it and there's a 7-10 day wait on the part. I don't want to wait that long or pay that much. Does anyone have any suggestions please?
I've found a few control modules on eBay that I think would work, they're only £100 and I could do the work myself. I just don't want to go through stripping off the bumper, lifts etc to get to it to find it doesn't work for whatever reason. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Hi, I have a 2020 A1 S-Line Competition and every now and then the engine / exhaust noise deepens and my fuel consumption drops from around 40-45 mpg to less than 30 mpg. This last from anything from a few hours to a couple of days and suddenly the issue disappears. I have had the Audi inspect the car but as the issue was not happening at the time they couldn't find a fault. Has anybody else experienced this?
As I can't see my planned European roadtrip happening thanks to the restrictions I'm looking at doing lands end to John o groats instead. Looking at going scenic roads/A roads abd intend to factor in 9-10 days to do it. Has anyone else done it?
