Question about 2000 Audi A4

Audi A4 starting problem

This Audi A4  2.0 litre is nine years old & the fault is as follows; The car starts well but after being driven for 3 miles or more it will not start again from the ignition key. All dashboard lights come on but there is no engine cranking. It is possible to start the car giving the starter motor a live feed to the solenoid. When the car is running it is always fine, but turn it off & it will not crank over. If the car is left long enough it can be started from the key again, but the same issues reoccur. All starter motor checks seem ok & there is a feed from the ignition switch, i can go into more detail if needed.  Thanks, Ray

Hi There I have a 1997, 2.6 Audi A4 i have a message that comes up when i start the car, it says (in 2) in my odometer. what does this mean? Also i am having a problem with acceleration as well, it...

The ( In 2) means that you need to have the computer scanned for fault codes . The scan will tell you what the problem in with your acceleration. It is best to have the scan done rather than guessing what the problem is. From my own experience one can spend alot of money needlessly guessing and changing parts that are actually OK.

A code P0118 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • A bad connection at the sensor
  • An open in the ground circuit between the ECT sensor and the PCM
  • A short in the voltage feed between the sensor and the PCM
  • A bad PCM (less likely)
