I recently purchased a used 2001 Audi A4, and the dealer didn't know anything about the car (he confused the tiptronic switches on the steering wheel with radio controls).

Anyway, the car didn't come with a manual, and I wondering what the different messages on the dash mean. Today, where the miles per gallon usually displays it read 2:00 h (flashed actually).

Does anyone know what kind of messages can appear, and what those messages mean?

Thanks

The computer displays are:

Instantaneous fuel consumption
Fuel range in miles or kms
Driving time approx eg 2 hours 00 minutes
Average fuel consumption
Average speed.

A flashing 2:00 h is your car telling you to take a break (stop and switch off the engine). It's a courtesy warning to prevent fatigue.

It just revs me up when my car is telling me to take a break, on my way to work when I am sitting stuck in a traffic jam for over 2 hours :-(

Hope that helps?
