    Hi, ive got a 1.6 a3 its a 2002, now the problem is when the tank goes little under half, the petrol light comes on :S

    And when you turn the ignition off fully and take the key out, everything turns off but the petrol gueage stops at middle of red reserve bars and after 2 seconds it drops completly and goes to wheere it should when the engine is off.

    any helps appricheated, have a good feeling its a sensor fault?

    Sounds like its the sender, or a faulty gauge, see if you can get the car on vagcom, it should indicate if there is a fault anywhere ok.

    No mate, go to a local specialist and get it checked out, rather than paying £100s for the cluster, its alot more likely to be the sender sticking, which will cost about £30 to replace.
