2007 Audi Q2 Quattro won't start after re-connecting the battery?


Please give this a go..Start with a throttle body adaptation. Needs to be done whenever the battery is reconnected after being disconnected. Turn the key to the ACC/ON position (without starting the engine) and wait about 3 to 4 minutes. You should hear some humming/clicking noises. After 3 to 4 min try to start it, should go. just needed the TB adaptation to cycle. with out a working TB no start, nada nothing.
Hope this helps

Here's some info as it sound like the theft deterrent is armed.

---
Reset Procedure

NOTE: This information applies to a Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) that was armed when the battery was disconnected and reconnected.

When the armed VTSS senses that the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, it enters its power-up mode. In the power-up mode the alarm system remains armed following a battery failure or disconnect. If the VTSS was armed prior to a battery disconnect or failure, the system will have to be actively or passively disarmed following a battery reconnection.

The power-up mode will also apply if the battery goes dead while the system is armed and battery jump-starting is attempted. The engine no-run feature will prevent the engine from starting until the alarm system has been actively or passively disarmed.

Passive disarming of the Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock either front door or the liftgate. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.

Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding, lights flashing, and the engine no-run feature), either disarming method will deactivate the alarm.

Depressing the Panic button (if equipped) on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the lights will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature. The horn and lights can be stopped by pressing any of the RKE transmitter's buttons or driving the vehicle above 15 mph.

Car will not acept key


take key out of console. Then push down fairly hard on the insert-turn key area, it goes down about 1/2 inch----, while ---,,taking your other hand--push your finger into the base where the key would be--push down lightly your finger will go about 3 inches past the base-down to the bottom.

slowly pull your finger out ,, release pressure on the insert key -turn key area to the front of the key base area..

Now ,,put the key in the console key holder -turn to the right -Kazooom you are good for go. !

If this does not work ,,loosen the negative battery cable,with key in console ,disconnect for 30 seconds,, replace cable.. try to start . If not starting do the above procedure again as the computer memory is now blank.

Best bet,,BEFORE disconnecting any battery connection put the key in the console turn to the right, short of cranking the starter.Keep the key in this position
Then Disconnnect the battery--

When battery is reconnected, wait 3 minutes, then try the key for starting this usually works wonders. Doors must be closed,,, foot on brake pedal when starting..

My bentley battery is dead & my key is stuck in the ignition what can i do?


There are very specific battery jumping procedures in the cars smaller maintenance book as opposed to the larger owners manual. Provided you can open the trunk to access both batteries. There is also an emergency starting procedure to use the main battery instead of the starting battery to start the car in the owners manual. If both batteries are exhausted this emergency procedure will not work.

Jumper cables work per the procedure in the manual - portable quick start devices such as ones the auto club use to start a dead battery did not work for me on this car - they had to hook up jumper cables as indicated in the manual to successfully start.

The drivers side AGM battery is specific to the car and can be purchased (likely special order) at any Volkswagen or Audi dealer (maybe Porsche also) - the passenger side starting battery is more generic and can be replaced with a variety of batteries provided they meet the same specifications as the OEM battery.

Make certain any shop that changes the battery is familiar with the battery safety terminal disconnect procedures as if they accidentally trip this device it severs the battery cables using a compact explosive charge.
