Auto tiptronic / computer prob
Hi there folks, I am a new member to the forum and am very impressed with it.
Hopefully, somebody out there may be able to help out with the following
I just bought an A6 Avant 2.5 Tdi 1998. Love the car but have a couple of things to sort out. The onboard computer display seems a bit funny – you can see some of the figures and characters on it , but others are blurred and not legible. Sometimes the whole display is fine, but more often it is blurred in one part or another.
This was annoying but wasn’t affecting the driving of the car --- until yesterday – when about half an hour into my journey, the display at the bottom of the small screen seemed to be “smudged” – this usually shows if you’re in auto mode or tiptronic. The car would take ages to get off the line or accelerate. I put the lever into tiptronic mode and it made no difference. The “12345” reading on the screen was barely legible.
Anyway, I pulled over and stopped the car, waited a minute & started it. Hey presto, display was back on with all figures clearly seen, and the car drove perfectly in both auto and tiptronic.
Any ideas anyone ? I really hope its not going to be an expensive electronic piece needing replacement
