    I Know i posted this before and got no replies (probably because of the complexity of the problem)but i have more details now.To start of with the ignition turned off and the vehcile locked i get the steering wheel light on the dash flashing very dull yellow.The hazard warning light flickering.When i have the ignition on every thing seems ok no warning lights just the steering wheel light a very dim yellow (can hardly be seen) but also the performance cold is not as good as it normally is.Can anyone shed light on this,i have it booked in at Audi Bexely Wednesday and the hourly charges are phenomenal.My fried has a VAG-COM but worried about putting on .

    If your friend has VCDS and does not want to scan your car because he is worried, then why has he even got VCDS??!!
    Just tell him to scan it and see what it brings up. No harm will be done to the car from a simple scan, he should know this!

    Could be something as simple as battery voltage no good from cold starting? Recommend you test the battery? Or even a poor earth somewhere on the body?
