Question about 1990 Audi V8 Quattro
You should have it scanned for fault codes to narrow down cause rather than replacing parts at random

SOURCE: I brought a car audi
the radio is in security mode and requires a 4 digit code to release the radio back into operation. the code is usually inside the owners manual on a preforated type card. maybe first couple pages. (if the manual is still even in there) or maybe previous owner has written it down in manual somewhere. if not then the dealer may have to extract it through their scanner. may cost $$. the 4 digit code will start with 1 or 0 if you happen to find code, reply back to me and ill help you enter it, may be in manual as well. hope this helps

Turn on radio - the word SAFE will appear in the display. Press th P.SCAN and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display.Release buttons.Do not, under no circumtances, continue holding them down or press them once again. This will cause the radio to consider the number 1000 to be the input code.Use station buttons 1,2,3,and 4 to enter the code number on your Radio Card. Use the button 1 to enter the first number 2 for the second number 3 for the third number and 4 for the last number.Once you have entered the code and it shows on the display,press the P.SCAN and RBDS buttons down again simultaneously and hold them down until the word SAFE appears in the display.Release buttons. Soon afterwards a frequency will be displayed.

Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.
I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.
My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.
