    That happened to mine just after I bought it, disconnected the battery for a few minutes, connected it all back up and hurrah.... fixed! It's been fine ever since.

    hope the same works for you.

    I'd love to help mate, but not really up on that side of the cars TBH.

    Wonder if it might be worth giving Audi a ring and see what they say?

    Oil temp is only available on AMK and BAM engines through VAG COM. Not sure what block though, as my engine is APY, therefore never used it.

    Option 51 is on the climate control panel. It shows the water temperature as read by the coolant temperature sensor. More info on this here: 72 Climate control tricks in very bad english (from alt.autos.audi) - AudiWorld Forums
