Sounds to be a loose or corroded wire/s at either starter motor or at battery fusible links.
Also check the earth strap (Cable) between engine and bodywork.
Hope this helps, MMP

SOURCE: 98 accord wont start. lights flicker in dash and engine wont turn over

Have the battery checked.  You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid.  If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also.  A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.    

Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this).  If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.

SOURCE: Setting the clock on an Audi A4 '98 1.8s

If it's an analog clock, pull out on the stalk closest to it (the small one protruding from the cluster), and then turn it to the right - that will advance the clock.

My a3 says safe when I turn it on and won't start.


Hello,
Just a simple hint. Just try reset ECU that will fix the problem if its a minor related to electronic.
Still wont start means you need to go to shop to get curbed .
Thanks

My audi a3 2.0 tdi has cut out and wont start seems like it is turning over realy easy it has done 53k there is and was no fumnny noises there is no warning lights or anything


I would suggest that you scan the computer for fault codes. There are different sensors that control ignition and fuel and any one of these sensors can cause the car to stall and refuse to start. The crankshaft positioning sensor could be the cause if it has failed completely. The check engine light may be burned out , therefore no warning lights.

I ran out of diesel in my 2005 Audi a3 now car wont start and the oil pressure light comes on when i try to start engine, should i take it to a garage?


You should be able to cycle the key on and off a number of times to prime the fuel rail. The oil light is always on when you first crank the engine. If it doesnt shut off as soon as the engine starts...yeah, that is good cause for shutting it off and getting a mechanic to check it out.

If you can find the valve on the fuel rail you can check for pressure *(and possibly purge the air out of the rail by pushing the valve and burping off the trapped air)

I have audi a3 05 when starting feels like no power or going to stall,esp light comes on and engine managment flickers on after the first run the lights go off????


VW engines intend to do this, even if you pull up at a set of traffic lights it will nearly cut out or go into high rev's. i have an a3 & once driving down the road @ about 50kpm, I lost power stearing for 1-2 seconds, stearing wheel went stiff. Audi are a good drive but needs lots of tlc. One other thing is fuel pump could be acting up a bit.
