Hello all,i have a strange problem with the steering on my A3 2.0 FSI (2004) . When starting the car from cold there are no problems and the car runs fine,if however i drive a couple of miles,say to get some petrol,when i go to drive away there are 3 loud beeps and a red steering warning light comes on on the dash. When the red light is on there is basically no assistance to the steering which is incredibly heavy! However,if the car is left for about half an hour and started again.the steering is back to normal and is fine. This problem only occurs after starting the engine after a brief stop and never occurs suddenly whilst actually driving. The problem started at the end of last winter but disappeared for the spring and summer only to start up again this winter! Just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem or can offer any advice before i have to take the car to a audi garage.
