My 2002 TT Roadster went through 5 batteries in less than 2 years. Dealers in both Chicago, Illinois and Sarasota, Florida, as well as Audi USA told me it was because I did not drive the car enough (12,0000 miles in 3.5 years). Contacted Audi-Germany. Problem apparently finally solved -- bad dash board control unit. Replaced under warranty. This should have been detected earlier, and I should not have been put through all this aggravation. Audi obviously knows about the problem, but will not direct dealers to fix it (a $1,350 repair). Other problems on this vehicle have been a defective horn, loose side view mirror assembly, and loose passenger side door -- all fixed under warranty. Otherwise, car is fabulous.

Did you have to change your instrument cluster? Do you know where I can get on for a 2001 Audi TT?
#11 of 109 dash problems
Mar 17, 2005 (8:17 am)
Dash problems are pretty common in the 01 and 02 TT's. My problems have been isolated to the fuel gauge (failed 3 times so far) and tachometer. As with a lot of cars, the entire dash has to be replaced to fix one gauge. Last I heard the dash boards were on back order due to high demand so I skipped out on fixing my fuel gauge and tach.
According to my service tech, the 225 engine burns oil by design. He said the heads are "porous". It's just a "feature" of the engine that people have to live with. I don't see the engines going 100k without some sort of failure due to the leaking.

I have a 2001 tt coupe with 19k miles. It does not burn any oil. No dash board problems either. However, I have had 3 "check engine" lights in the last 6 weeks. The 1st was diagnosed as a "Mass Air Flow" sensor. The 2nd required the replacement of the "purge valve". I'm taking the car in for the 3rd this week. Has anyone else had similar check engine problems not related to gasoline fill-ups?

I have had similar problems. Check engine light comes on, I take the car in (no warranty left), pay $400 for a diagnostics that comes up with 1. Fuel door open (rubbish), 2. Mass airflow (dealer blames K&N filter and they tape it up, 3 Mass airflow (Remove K&N and replace with new stock filter), 4. ?? haven't taken the car back yet. I am paying $300-$400 for nothing every visit with the light coming back on immediately after driving out of the dealership or within 1 day of driving. Now they are blaming the Forge exhaust, since they cannot fox the problem with the car.

Audi TT 2000 Instrument Cluster ProblemI have an Audi TT 2000 and the instrument cluster has gone nutty. When I turn the car on it blinks and flashes. After the car is running the speedometer and tac do not work and the center indicator lights sometimes. In addition to this the car has some type of electrical issue, it won't start with out a jump. Does anyone have any ideas?
