I have an Audi a4 Quattro 2.8.
Battery died and we charged it fully and now it will start but it will not idle, i was told it might be a motor with in the idle. the mechanic has it now i am concerend about what it could be and how costly..
All you need to do is get the throttle motor/body re-adapted, this can be done by audi, sometimes if you were to drive the vehicle 30 miles it will re-adapt itself but as its not idling, this can be difficult

don't think fuse diagram will help , is the battery in good condition , may not hold enough charge to turn over engine , try jump start if engine starts then get a new battery then check alternator charge rate as may be reason battery went
Remove the air filter and squirt a bit starter fluid into the intake manifold , then immediately try to start the car if it starts , that is an indication there is no fuel going to the engine ,check the fuel system,if it does not start , you may have an ignition problem.
i would check the throttle butterfly for a carbon build up that may keep it from closing completely. have seen this cause stalling when returning to idle rpm. Best to try to remove and clean from both sides to get good results.this is just one of many possible problems. Hope it helps if so please let me know with a reply and good luck
Start your car, then unplug the battery. if it dies, your alternator may need to be checked at an automotive parts store for it may be bad. If it runs, your battery has a dead cell and needs to be replaced.
