This actually sounds like the same stupid lousy connection that
most of the '89-'91 100/200s suffer from. Mine has it, Mike LaRosa
has it, I know several others, too.

The fix is usually to just unplug the display, clean the contacts
and reseat the plug.

When I reported this at first, Audi wanted to charge $1000 for a new
auto-check computer, then agreed to pick up 75% of it. Big deal....
