Yah, it's a bit strange. This morning it did not come on at all. It's like 
it never happened. Maybe washing the engine caused a bit of moisture to get 
into or around the sensor. It would be a very strange coincidence that it 
would not be related to the coolant dump from a few days ago. Although with 
Audis, I have seen stranger things!
