Have you been following the thread on CPS codes 2113 ? That was
probably throwing the codes for the CEL . The good news is that there
are lots of Bosch replacements available at less than half the dealers
price. Check out this thread for more info. Most listers that have
had the car a while have replaced this item, early failures only had
dealer parts for replacement at about $400 plus labor. If this is
your problem, you can check and clean the connector near the front of
the fuel rail cover, and the failure is usually intermittant for a
long while. Mine required about 10 waits in the parking lot of 30
minutes or more before the car would start.
Tom '95 S6 been there too
