I have pulled the codes on it numerous times when this problem is happening,
and always get 4444. very frustrating, I have not tried pulling the plug on
the MFTS though. That's something to try. Thanks! The 02 sensor is less then
30k old. But. That also could be a problem too. I had thought about the 02
sensor, but discounted it because of it only being at its 'half-life'

O2 sensor? It wouldn't do much until after you start the car,
then it might be cantankerous until it warms up. ISV - it may
just need a good cleaning. The MFTS (multi-function temp. sensor)
is also problematic - a frequent source of failure that causes
funky problems. A Google search of the Audifans website will
tell you more.
Have you checked the DTC troubleshooting codes?
