    little money saver

    after driving the s4 continually for 6hrs today the engine managment light apeared on the dash, no symtoms at all just the light. re started engine - still no good - drove all the way home - light still on, anyway was going to book it in to beechwood audi tommorow when i decided to disconnect the battery forr 10mins first. result - light gone! all reset!

    worth trying this first before you hand over an hours labour at the dealers!

    scared the hell outa me too, first the oil level light ,then the engine symbol all whilst miles from home! i dont know why engine light came on - might come back but the car was hot, in heavy traffic for over an hour stop start and i was starting to worry about it anyway. there is that much heat comes off those v8's you cant touch the bonnet! temp gauge is half way though.

    There's a reason why the CEL came on, best to get it diagnosed properly rather than ignore the problem. It could come back at any time, remember.
