Re: 97 audi a4 no power/battery fuse?
Sounds like either the battery leads are on the wrong way round, or the starter main cable is touching something and shorting to earth. Retrace your steps and check your connection locations.
Either that or its a dead short through the starter. Remove main cable from back of starter and tape up incase of short. then reconnect battery. If ok now then your looking at starter motor.

All Windows or 1? If all check fuses. layout is in owners manual as well as locations. If one window either the window switch or window motor. If you a little mechanical you can change out switch. If not find a good mechanic with references on your car. Motor is more labor intensive. Hope just the switch. If it is the fuse and you replace it and it blows again, short in the wiring. Good luck
1999 Audi A4 2.8 V6 engine. Starter - removing and installing Caution! Disconnect the battery Ground strap before working on the electrical system. Notes: 1. Before disconnecting the battery, determine the correct coding for the anti-theft radio. 2. Once the battery is reconnected, check and activate the vehicle's electrical equipment (radio, clock, comfort and convenience features, etc) as described in the Owners Manual.
i have a audi a4 1997 the car wont start the lights on the dash are coming on but when turning the key to start there is no response.i was told its the stater motor so i had that replaced but problem still there
now disconnect only the negative side of the battery while the ignition is on, but engine off. After 3 minutes connect the negative, start the car and see if they perform. if not, locate the fuse for your power windows, it might be blown.
hope this helps.
Hi pojo_nz,The fuses should be in the same place as my 95 Audi A4,open the drivers door and look at the end of the dash right in front of you,there is a plastic cover,pull it off its just clipped on and you will find the fuses there.
IF YOUR ENGINE WON T TURN OVER AFTER YOU FITTED A NEW STARTER MOTOR..I WOULD START WITH THE BATTERY MYBE DEFECTIVE NOT HOLDING FULL CHARGE....THEN CHECK WIRING.....GET BACK TO ME IF YOU NEED MORE HELP !!
NO FUSES ON MY AUDI A4 2002 FOR HEADLIGHTS ETC. LOOKED UP MY HAYNES WORKSHOP MANUAL (WIRING DIAGRAMS) WORKS WITH THE POWER SUPPLY CONTROL UNIT, THERE IS ONLY ONE FUSE ON THE DIAGRAM FOR HEADLIGHTS ,SIDE, TAIL AND THATS FOR THE WHOLE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM 150AMPS RIGHT NEXT TO BATTERY.............. HOPE I HAVE BEEN OF SOME HELP TO YOU..
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
