    Mine was the fuel sensor, of course there could be other reasons.

    What other reason besides the fuel sensor could it be? and is the sensor expensive?
    Do you know of any audi breaker?

    Thanks

    Hi Rav,

    I had an identical problem with my 2001 A3 TQ. I'd turn the ignition on one morning and the fuel gauge would not move, turn the ignition off and then back on again and it would register. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    It was a faulty fuel sender gauge and was replaced by the dealer under warranty.

    Sorry I can't be of any more help....

    Does the "range" still work accurately on the DIS, or is that all over the place as well? don't know if that uses the same sensor.

    When the sender gauge went on mine, the range on the DIS went too. The Petrol Icon appeared showing 0 miles in tank, so can be pretty sure they use the same sensor.
