2.0l TDI SE Manual - Has been back to the dealers five times now to get a faulty sensor changed but after a few journeys the flashing glow plug light comes back on and the engine management light will no doubt appear soon.

Sensor has been changed several times and the engine control unit has also just been changed.

Has anyone else experienced an issue like this with their Q5 or any other Audi?

I thought i would update this post in case anyone else experiences this.

Audi have finally managed to rectify the fault. It turns out that it was a faulty wiring loom in the engine which caused the warning lights to keep coming on. It also caused a vibration when pulling away in first gear at around 1500rpm.

It took 6 weeks in total for Audi to find the fault and they initially changed the clutch as they thought the vibration was a flywheel issue. I suspect that for most of the six week the car was not worked on as they always seemed to be waiting for parts from Germany. It would seem that many parts are not stocked in the UK yet so be aware of this if you need something fixed.

I have test driven the car for over a week and the problem has not reoccurred.
