Audi A3 2.0 fsi 2004 will not start


Sounds like you have a weak battery. It doesn't take much power to make all the lights work but you need a lot of current to start the engine. You can test the battery by looking at voltage across the terminals when you try to start the car, if it's less than 12 volts your battery needs to be replaced. If your battery is more than 5 years old it should be replaced anyway. Good luck, let us know how it goes.

Audi a3 no start


How do you know the battery is fine? Sure sounds like you have a weak battery- the symptoms are all the electrical bits work- except starting the car. All your electrical systems don't need much current, but your starter needs a lot. If your battery isn't fresh then your car won't start, but everything else will appear to work. You can test the battery by looking at voltage across the terminals when you try to start the car, if it's less than 12 volts your battery needs to be replaced. If your battery is more than 5 years old it should be replaced anyway. Good luck, let us know how it goes.

Battery light on my 2004 chevy trailblazer. It lasted a day then all the ABS breake light came on the the battery drained. The truck shut off. What could this be. I bought a brnad new battery 2 years ago.


The battery light comes on when there is an issue with the charging system. Most likley you have a bad alternator. With the engine running you should see a min. of 13.5 volts at the battery and better yet 14+ volts. If you have 12.5 or less than the alternator is not charging.

Once the vehicle is started the battery is no longer in play. The alternator is what keeps the power supply to the vehicle and recharges the battery for the next time you want to start the vehicle. Once battery voltage drops below 9 volts or so systems start to shut down. Eventually the battery will drain enough that the engine management system can no longer function and the vehicle will stall.

It will not turn over it does this sometimes most of the time when its cold the lights and radio work and it clicks when i turn the key but no fire!


Sounds like you have a bad battery. Check the date on the battery, if it is original it is probably time to replace it. Often times the radio and lights will still work when the battery is low because they take less power than the starter. If the battery is less than about 4 years old you may be looking at a starter on its way out. But it sounds more likely that it is a bad battery.

Been having problems when starting vehicle, battery wont charge


Battery are in most case only good for 4 years and after that they can no longer hold a charge. Have the truck boosted to start the engine, you may need to let the battery charge up for 120 min before trying to start the truck.
Once started, check the voltage at the battery, you should have a reading of 13.5 to 14 volts. If you have less then 13.5 volts, you most likely have a bad alternator and needs to be replaced.
If your readings are good and there is 13.5 volts, your battery is bad and needs to be replace. The battery can no longer hold a charge and at worst there is a short in the battery it self causing it to loose charge like leaving a light on.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.
