SOURCE: Audi A4 1.8T 1999 Faulty interior fan

This is a common fault and is caused by worn brushes on the blower motor.

Removal of the motor by dismantling the glove box assy, then turning the brushes 180 degrees or replacing them will solve this.

SOURCE: Overheating

When you mention the radiator having a hot upper in pipe and a cool bottom out pipe tells me that the coolant is not moving around the engine. This could be down to a water pump not working, blocked radiator, thermostat not opening. The bottom hose should be cooler than the top hose but once the engine is up to working temp which is around 85/90 degrees c for an audi the bottom still should be farly hot to touch. Hope this helps

Audi A6 anti theft, car won't start

The biggest problem with intermittent problems is getting them to occur.It seems that your trouble is sticking around,and maybe you need to just give in and have it flat-bedded to an Audi shop(hopefully the ride on the truck will be gentle enough that the trouble won't clear itself).

Why won't my car start without getting a jump? Once I get it jumped it runs really good but when I turn it off and try to start it again, it won't start. I have a new battery and a new alternator...

Buy yourself a volt meter and check the batter voltage before and after it starts. You should read 12 volts before starting and around 14 volts once it starts and the alternator is charging the battery. Also check for loose connections between the alternator and battery. Check that the ground wire from the battery is secured to the vehicles frame. Good luck!

My 1992 Chevy Beretta had several holes in the radiator so my Dad took it in to be repaired and put it back in. But now, the fan won't stay on, especially if I travel more than 5 miles. He has done...

Did the engine overheat before the radiator was replaced? If so, there is a very high likelyhood that you have a blown head gasket and/or a warped or cracked cylinder head. Those aluminum heads are VERY UNFORGIVING when it comes to being overheated!

My 1987 jeep cherokee pioneer will start but then you drive to the store come back out and it will not start until it sets for 5 or 6 hours..

You may have a faulty ignition coil. Check to see if system is firing when it won't start. If you have fire it is probably fuel pump.

My battery dies. my battery light doesn't come on when i turn the key on. light bulb is good. so what can it be.

If you can start the engine, connect a voltmeter to the battery. If you aren't getting about 13.5 Volts, you probably have a problem with the alternator.
