Question about 1985 Audi 5000 S
We just bought a 1985 Audi 5000 and we can't seem to get it to start. The starter for some reason won't turn over. We think it might be a problem in the neutral safety switch (its an automatic.) but we don't really know anything about that. We turn the key on and crossed the terminals on the starter selinoid and the starter turns but won't turn over the engine. I've heard that Audi's won't start unless it has a fully charged battery so that may be the problem, but it is charged enough to make all the lights in the dash light up and radio work so I'm not sure if thats true or not. I've never had an Audi so I'm kind of lost, we collect VW's so I thought it would be similar. So what could be going on here? Any ideas would be appreciated.
Replace the starter. The starter drive which is called a Bendix on the end of the starter is broken.
