I bought my 2.0 tdi Avant just before Xmas knowing about the odd potential fault. My gripe here is I don't think I've ever had a car that enjoys throwing warning lights on so much!
Exhaust emission light was the first one to say hello, scanned it, no fault stored
then the glow plug light thought it would have its turn!
The DPF warning light was waiting in line for its turn So then I had the joy of having all three on and the car in limp mode! Scanned again......DPF pressure sensor, lovely nice easy to get to sensor, troubles over...... Replaced it, and believe it or not felt like a completely different car, pulled well, smooth and responsive.
My joy was short lived, about a week I'd say, driving home from in laws last night I thought mmmmm something doesn't feel right here, looked at the dash and there was my old friend the glow plug
warning light flashing happily away at me with the car in..... 'look at the Audi driver with the hazard lights on mode'!!!!
I pulled over, stopped the car, started it and all was fine, although the car just didn't feel the same, bit sluggish and basically just not running how it should
when will this end?????? My tech mate says he may as well leave his lap top permanently pluged in to my car! I love the car but these warning light issues are losing their novelty now!! im not the most patient, Much more and forum members will be able to view pictures of the car....all nine of them on Auto Trader!
