hey, i'm new! the names Michael, i'm from Newcastle-upon-tyne! i have a A3 8p, 1.9 tdi on a 54 plate. was wondering if anyone can help... when i'm driving along the dashboard just shuts off all lights go out, needles drop, handbrake light goes on and radio says 'safe' then few seconds later it comes back, time reset, and fuel gauge goes where ever it feels! and once came up with abs fault then went out. before the dash started going off it would be battery light coming on then go out but battery was fine and alternator was charging. now the dash just goes out! seems to be worse when its cold outside or raining but no signs of water in footwells! any help would be much appreciated!
