    sup all,

    I have a wierd issue, on the very cold mornings where there has been ice on the car, i start up the car the temperature warning comes on.

    so far what i've been doing is leaving it on for a minute or two then switching the engine off then back on again.

    the temp warning does not come on again.

    I can only think that maybe there is ice on the contacts and once the engine is warmed a little it melts and comes off.

    anyone else heard or seen anything like this? is this something i should get checked out?

    I get this each year when the temperature drops.

    If my passengers ask, I just say its the flux capacitor charging up :)

    Don't tell the Audi dealer that you have a flux capacitator, they will charge you £500 just to have it serviced... :cold:
