Question about 1990 Audi 100
I've looked all thru this forum and could not find anybody who ran into the same problem I'm having. Currently my 100 is having some issues with the factory alarm, and starting.
When I initially start the car I usually have no problem. I just pump the gas a little while I'm turning the key and it usually starts up with no problem. In the one in ten chance that it fails to start, I do the same thing again and I get nothing. I try the same thing again about five to ten minutes later and it usually starts right up. I just replaced the rotor button cause it was worn and thought that was the issue, however it did not resolve the problem. The distributor cap is only about a year old. When I shut the car off I immediately hear the horn go off but it's not the alarm sounding as it's only one beep.
As far as the alarm goes, it's been acting strange since the starting issue has come into my life, and I'm sure they are linked. Whenever I open one of the doors the alarm will go off. It silences when I put the key in the drivers side door (this is the only door lock that works right now) turn it clockwise and it silences the alarm.
Has anybody ever ran into a problem like this and/or do you have any suggestions as to what I should do.
All i can think of it must be your ignition switch, contacts worn out.
