    2009 B7 2.0 TDi Cab Final edition has died!

    All

    I was on the motorway on Sunday, sitting at 70mph in sixth and all of a sudden my dashboard resmebled a very tacky christmas tree! At one point or another all the warnign lights were flashing and the rev counter was all over the place! Then it cut out and I coasted to the hard shoulder!

    Audi rescue called - RAC man turns up and tows me home!

    The car has been in Audi and apparently it needs a new engine management system! 7-10 days delivery for the part and then needs to be programmed etc!

    Anyone else had anything similiar? Car is only 3 months old!

    I am now the not so proud driver of an Insignia!

    Any comments greatly appreciated

    Ian

    I had something similar on my B6 2.0 FSi - the engine management shut down the car to prevent damage... it did it a few times on the motorway... I think it may have been a faulty sensor or something - can't remember now.

    Bit scary on the motorway as you lose the power assistance & you have to fight the steering to turn!
