Audi A4 Quattro Problem

Not visible or lines through the display or faded. It comes and goes.
The digital display repair can be done by removing the gauge cluster and the circuit ribbon reset to the circuit board
When it gets cold I can see it but as it gets warm is fades away

The temperature gauge stopped working right after the warrany went out and I had to replace the entire instrument panel.

The lights fade upward until you can no longer see and display. When the park, drive neutral, reverse line disappears, the car will no longer go in reverse. Have to take it to a dealership because no other place can understand the codes.

For about a year and a half, my digital display has intermittently had failures to various lines. Now, the problem is constant, and why Audi won't address this question is mysterious. Do they want cars to fail completely - no oil, brakes, or lights, causing accidents or deaths? From everything I've read, they are ignoring the matter.
