Intake Air Temp Code

I have the same issue with my 200 20v.  The engine light sometimes stays
on after starting (hot or cold), and the light eventually goes out.  It
always goes out under boost.  VAG-COM says 00523 - Intake air sensor
(G42) Open or short to B+.  Wiring looks OK, but I haven't done any
testing.  I will ask at Audi about reliability of the sensor, or if we
should be looking elsewhere.  Anyone else seen this?

Subject: [s-cars] S6 - Intake Air Temp Code

[ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ]
Hello all,
my s6 keeps throwing the intake air temp intermittent code (on vag-com).
wanted to know if this was a common occurrence and what the common diag.
procedures are.

Thanks in advance
