Question about 1989 Audi 200
I have an 89 audi 200 TQ that when I unlock the driver's side door with the key, it starts a ticking sound (like a watch) under the glove box compartment and if I try to start the engine it does not crank, unless I disconnect the battery for 3 seconds and connect it again the car will immediately starts but if I unlock the car on the passenger door there is no problem. This is driving me nuts!! Any suggestions?
Another question, how can I make the turbo work? The car runs great up to 100mph but I don’t hear any different type of sound rather than the engine working; is the turbo really working?
Also, the Quattro only works below 20mph and if I try a sharp turn I hear a tire like if it was breaking or not turning. Sorry this is my first Turbo and Quattro car. Dave.

SOURCE: turbo= not working
Most likely the turbo is gone. What ever part of the turbo went, just replace the entire turbo. Not serviceable 99% of the time. The engine will not like being driven for any extended period of time with a bad turbo.

My daughter's car was doing the same thing. Turned out the plastic housing in the ignition switch was cracked and was staying on.

I don't know about the ticking but I know changing the filter and fluid is the first thing to do when an auto trans has a problem plus cleaning the pan. Another thing is get a automobile sound wand and get under there and see if you can pinpoint the ticking.
