    Most likely, although it could be a pressure sensor.

    Just had this,

    but had pressure, switch was fine, although I replaced it anyway ( what a fvcking ripoff from Audi, 50 odd quid for a tiny sensor)

    luckily turned out out to be chaffed wiring, (and a free fix by the garage where I was having a cambelts done - Kushti)

    I was just starting to look at compressors and they are not cheap

    My econ light won't go off either. I've only recently bought the car so I'm gonna try getting it re-gassed first.

    Yeah haven't had mine 2 months yet. So far, emissions light coz of an air leak, two strange squeaks and a dull rattle from the front suspension, and now what i hope is just an air con re charge needed! Im sure my faith will be restored soon lol

    gonna polish it today to make myself feel better ha ha. All faults can be forgotten when your Audi is shining!

    My econ light staying on was the result of the sensor under the passenger side headlight being faulty.... i knew they were pricey so i nicked the one of my sons car as his aircon has never worked since buying the car....
