HI,HANNAH,I SUSPECT YOU HAVE AN IMMOBILIZER PROBLEM.IF THERE IS A ORANGE LIGHT FLASHING ON THE CLUSTER WITH AKEY IN IT THEN IT IS THE IMMOBILIZER.THE PROBLEM WOULD MORE LIKELY BE THE DATA FROM THE KEY IS NOT GETTING TO THE IMMOBILIZER CONTROL UNIT,USUALLY A BAD CONNECTION AT THE READER COIL ON THE IGNITION.YOU MUST CLOSE THE TERMINALS SLIGHTLY AND INSULATE THE WIRING SEPERATELY.ANDY

1996 Audi A4 1.8 petrol. Turn ignition key and engine starts , runs 2 secs and cuts out need to keep doing this until it finaly starts. Seems to be getting worse.


Car getting started then cuts off after 2 seconds.Its starter related issue.Either the starter is faulty or battery to starter connection is loose or got short in between.It has to be checked and replaced.Get the voltage checked from battery to starter.The battery should show 12 volts if fully charged.

Audi a4 problem


I had a similar problem on my Audi A4 1.8T after three seperate trips to different garages I was told I needed a new ignition and it could only be re-coded at an Audi dealer - was told it would cost in the region of £500. As the car was not worth much more than this I did a little research myself and found that the ignition key may have been intermittenly losing its code (as sometimes the car would start ok) I had a new key cut at my local key specialist at a cost of £20 and its been fine ever since (that was over 2 years ago)
Hope this helps

A4 Starts ok then engine fades out? 1996 model


Try replacing the engine temp sensor. Temp sensor is telling ECU the engine is hot when its is actually cold. After the 6th attempt there is enough fuel in the cylinders to create a ritch mixture, then it goes.

Audi a4 problem


I had this problem with my old Audi 80 and basically it was a knackered fuel pump. If your car is a few years old avoid the main Audi dealers and take it to an independant Audi/Volkswagon specialist and you will save a small fortune.
