Question about 1996 Audi A4
Starts then cuts out after 3 seconds if i rev engine and quickly turn the ignition off and back on again runs for another 3 seconds Bonnet release catch. Plastic grill lever does'nt pop out
You could also short-circuit (reset the computer of the car).. Just leave the red wire connected on the battery, disconnect the other cable (black one) that goes on the battery (-) and connect the black cable with the read cable.. That should reset the car computer and let you start the engine.. You have a sensor or something broken in your car.. My advice is have your car checked by specialists (best solution). Good Luck.

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
