make sure you have a good battery and its getting a charge from the alternator check engine compartment fuses related to the start and charge wiring and make sure the relays in the same circuit are good as far as a precise answer not enough info could be anything from a loose battery terminal to a bad fusible link or anything else related to the starter battery and alternator systems

Go to www.audidiy.com or www.audiworld.com (look in their Tech area), and there are full procedures on how to do it (it's the timing belt service). It's not a difficult job really, but you may need to get some specialty tools such as Torx bits to do the job.
Make sure that you get G12 coolant from VW/Audi (the pink kind) and if you have some other color in there now, flush it fully before adding the G12. You can order everything you need, including coolant, from www.ecstuning.com (I've used them many times with full satisfaction). Don't waste your money on the advertised cam locking tool - it's very expensive and wholly unnecessary. Its intent is to keep the cams from spinning, but if you position the #3 cylinder (rear passenger side) to top-dead-center on its compression stroke, the cams would have to be hit with a hammer to turn them.
The job is not difficult really. I've done many timing belts on many cars before, so I know what I'm doing overall, but the first time I did an Audi 2.8L V6, it took me a total of 5.5 hours start to finish. Many other cars (like my 300ZX) take that long just to reach the timing belt. As for how these kinds of jobs go, this is a very easy one.
Buzz me back on here or in email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions you'd like answered related to this or the rest of your car and I'll do what I can to help you out.
