Question about 1994 Audi 100

Re: 2003 audi a6 not cranking when cold

I have learned to crank it twice. the first time is to warm it up. it usually starts the second time with some stuttering. there is a lould squealing, which i assume is the belt. but, it hesitates when it's time to crank. my uncle thinks it may be the fuel pump or fuel sensor. i only have the issue when the car is cold (in the morning, when i get ready to drive home or go to lunch).

Try running lighter weight oil in the winter time, if the oil is too cold the starter will have to work extra hard to turn the engine over and sometimes this will cause fuel problems because the injectors are timed with the engine.

Hesitation when starting

Put the battery onto a battery charger. It sounds like the cold cranking amps capacity of your battery is low. Starting a car that is cold and sat, is ******* the battery. The next cranking is easier and the oil has been moved and things are now lubricated. That car should be on its third battery for a 2003, and I bet it is the second. You are looking at a new battery every 5 to 7 years depending on make and how it was looked after.

You can also make sure that the battery terminals and clamps are clean and not oxidised. Make sure you keep power to the system, with using a battery charger or use a length of wire wrapped around the battery terminal and the battery lead, otherwise you will have to re-pair the chips in the antitheft system.

1999 audi a6 wont crank sometimes

Either there is a bad or dirty battery connection which is allowing the lights but no crank or you could have dirty or loose starter wires or starter relay may be bad or ignition is a possibility. All these can be tested with an ohmmeter for power. I would start with connections

When cold starter does not turn over then suddenly fires up, when warn turns over normally?

Have ur battery checked out first.If that is ok,then its your starter motor brushes worn.Solution change the starter motor.When the engine is warm its easyer to crank over because all the moving parts get warm and expand making it easyer to start when warm.Hope that was helpfull goodluck

Starter switch. Plastic and cheap, my 98 A6 did the same thing... I replaced thousands in parts, turned out to be a cracked ignition switch which is a very common Audi problem!
