No the ignition switch doesn,t have any thing to do with the car not get spark,Who ever told you that clearly has no clue what they are talking about, It probally has to do with the coil packs,Or the (PCM) might evan have to do with it,Being that it is a (Audi) The best thing to do is to take it to some body that works on (Audi,s) End now,s what there doing, Then ,Waste your money, Paying some mechanic that has never work on one, End doesn,t have a clue about them,

Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.
I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.
My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.

If you have acess to a mutimeter check the batery voltage. Should be around 12.5 volts. also check batery voltage when trying to crank engine. Should drop to 9volts while cranking. If it dose but engine dose not turn over you know power is still going to the starter motor but its just not turning. This could be a bad conection in the starter some where.if voltage dose not drop you know power is not reaching the starter motor. this could be a bad earth to the starter from the baterty somewhere. But also listen for clunking or clicking noices while cranking which would surgest the starter is trying to turn. try this before doing any other diagnostics.hope this helps

SOURCE: crank sensor location
Look around the bottom of cylinder block. Or near where the flywheel is to, because the crank angle sensor works from missing teeth or magnets on the flywheel or a cog/wheel fixed to the crankshaft.Hope this helps
