1998 Audi A4 2.8 won't start

Hello,

I just bought an Audi A4 2.8L but it won't start. When the car is started, all of the A/C and dash functions come on, but the car just clicks. I have been advised it may be an engine issue, but the dealers and other auto shops are quoting me thousands to just tear-apart the engine to diagnose the problem. Please help! Thanks

Does the clicking happen when you try to start the car? If so, the battery may be flat, try to jump or bump start the car. If the clicking occurs when running, check oil level, if this is ok there maybe engine damage. Do not run and seek advise from a garage.

Sounds like your battery is tired and isn't holding charge as deeply as it did. As batteries get older they don't charge as deep into plates. Your reading of 12.6 is just surface reading. Have local parts store load test it -- they do it for free

2004 A 8L won"t start


starter wont click because there's not enough "juice" to turn it over. this isnt because of the battery as you have just replaced it. it is due to a bad alternator recharging the battery as you drive. if it were only a fuse it would be the solenoid in the starter. but if it had started after you installed the battery then its not the solenoid. solution: buy a refurbished alternator and
