Re: How about the (my) Audi question?

A bad bomb will cause the red rectangular "BRAKE" warning light to flash
once when the brakes are applied.  At first it will only happen when you
apply the brakes quickly.  Later it will flash once just about each time
you push the pedal.  I can share this from personal, current experience
with my 91 200qw.  For other fun, the brake pad thickness warning on the
AutoCheck panel will come on at random times, sometimes when you hit a
sharp ridge in the road, sometimes when you start the car on a hot day,
sometimes just out of the blue when cruising straight and level on a
smooth road.  

Audi.  Not just a car, a cheeky, endearing, somewhat mercurial companion
for ..the road.
