    Yes it drives fine and all the warnings go away when started, it's just the fuel gauge that craps out when it's running. No not scanned yet, I don't know anyone this way with vcds and I don't have the cash at the min for Audi prices, plus got to get to a test tomo,I

    Mine did this the other day when it was hot. In the end I went round gave all the doors a good hard shut, then locked it waiting for it to go off but its been fine since.
