SOURCE: audi A4 key will not come out after turning engine off

I had this as well, but you just have to wait a second. You can't remove it to quickly, the car takes a second to essentially unlatch the key.

SOURCE: my 1997 audi a4 the ignition key is stuck. what

OK first thing- Car has to be in park to pull the key from the ingnition. if it is and you still cant pull it, rock the wheel back and forth alittle (sometimes the columb lock doesnt lock properly and you cant release the key until it locks, rocking the wheel usually fixes this problem). and the last possibility is that the tumblers in your ignition have broken, when this happens you cant pull the key from the ignition because you cant turn the key back to the off possition all the way. when this happens you don't want to pull the key because you risk not being able to put it back in the ignition later and are forced to replace the ignition so you can drive your car. However if the tumblers are indeed broken you will have to replace the ignition anyway, atleast by leaving the key in it you can still drive the car until its replaced

Airbag is on


Usually means power to SRS system has been interrupted. IE: If you had a flat battery or replacement battery installed and ignition key was turned on when battery flat or battery out.

Will set if voltage drops below 9.5 volts during cranking too.
Need a scanner to read and clear codes

Car will turn over but not start.97 audi a4 1.8


It sounds like you don't have quite enough juice to start it. Sometimes vehicles will turn over but won't start when battery is low. Have someone jump you with jumper cables and I bet it will start then have your battery tested. If it won't start try giving it a shot of starter fluid as well as jump starting it and this will probably do the trick. If not you will have to have it diagnosed professionally. Good Luck

On my '99, this is the procedure:

Put the key in the ignition. Press and hold the left reset "stick" on the cluster, then turn the key to full electrical power. Pull out on the right "stick" and the display will turn to all dashes like this: ---- Turn the key off, then release the left stick, and restart the car and it should be reset.
