    You are having more than a simple electrical problem. It seems as though you are not getting fuel to the motor. Also you must have a fuse or short that is involved with the instrument panel not operating. Try starter fluid(just a shot) to see if motor will turn over and start if it does you may have fuel problem(fuel filter fuel pump etc). Good Luck

Your ignition switch could be bad. If so, the car could confused about what to start and when, and also explain why your panel isn't working.

It's a common problem for the switch to go bad. You can buy a new one on Ebay cheap, however the replacement is not easy.

Sounds like you have a loose wiring harness going to the fuse panel. Check to be sure the connections are in good shape, and that nothing has chewed through the wires

1996 audi a4 wont start


What happens when you try to start it? Does the engine turn over or is it completely dead? If you don't hear the engine turn over I would check to see if your battery is charged. If it isn't it's likely alternator went out. Report back if it's turning over (meaning the battery and alternator is good)

Hi own a Audi A4 1997 2.6 V6 model. I’m having problems sometimes on starting the car, the engine is fine and still sounds super the trouble is when I get in the car and trying to start it. When I turn the...


Assuming that your battery is in good shape at full charge, when you start the engine, it makes a click, that is the sound from a solenoid to make a contact so electric current can flow through the starter to make turns. The contacts from the solenoid get corroded due to aging and from sparks as several contacts performed over years. This becomes high resistance limiting current flow to the starter hence no turn, and also you can see the battery indicator becomes dull as to much current consumed through the high resistance path. Replace the starter solenoid will take care of your problem.

Can't get any thing electrical to turn on. Replaced battery. No engine starting, no lights, no radio, no buzzers. Nothing works.


Lets assume the battery is a good one, I would say its a fusable link. You will need to get the car to your trusted mechanic and have it fixed..

Fan on Audi A4 Avant not working


'Fraid I can only vouch for the A6, but the A4 is very similar and has many common components. On the A6 it's reasonably easy, as the access is from behind the glovebox on the inside and under a filter next to the battery on the outside. Audi's are notorious for having burnt-out/seized heating blower fans, so your diagnose is probably correct... :(

Car will turn over but not start.97 audi a4 1.8


It sounds like you don't have quite enough juice to start it. Sometimes vehicles will turn over but won't start when battery is low. Have someone jump you with jumper cables and I bet it will start then have your battery tested. If it won't start try giving it a shot of starter fluid as well as jump starting it and this will probably do the trick. If not you will have to have it diagnosed professionally. Good Luck

Audi a4 1.8 avant 1997


my 97 a4 would start and then die, i had it diagnosed as the immobiliser in the dashboard costing about £600 !!! The battery went flat trying to start it so i took it off the car and charged it up, when i put it back on the car before i took it to get fixed i thought i would try it 1 more time and "hey presto" it started and ran and has not missed a beat since ! That was 2 years ago, it was like the computer had re-set itself with the battery removed for charging, i hope this may be of some help.
