Car originally taken in for 'intermittent' cooltant light - said it was repaired but 2 days later it 'died' - parked in lot and wouldn't turn on again - altho windows/radio/battery okay - allowed it to be towed to 'mechanic' who was 'experienced' in Audi's - he has had it 6 weeks and still nothing. I did get it back after the first 4 days - saying it was a 'coolant hose' - when I starting driving it 'overheat' HORRIBLY. And the 6 week saga began - he tells me that the cooling fans aren't activating and can find where the problem is - turns out he doesn't know audi's at all and now it is in pieces from the back seat to the dash - the latest thing is that possibly a main fuse/relay center needs replacing.
In all fairness I should note that when I bought the car (in 2004) that the tach didn't work and then in 2007 the gas gauge stopped working - but I didn't think that would have much to do with it - the mechanic says there are no wiring/electrical diagrams to be found for a 1998 Audi cabriolet. The car is an absolute mess - I know this is not much to go on - maybe i'm just venting and want somebody to fix my car - I have suggested numerous times to have someone else take a look, but with it in 'pieces' nobody is willing to touch it.
have the same problem?
