Question about 1996 Audi A4
When ignition turned on and then tried to start the car the battery light goes off and there is no sound from the motor.
It does sound like there's a bad connection either on your battery itself, or at the end of the earthing strap to the chassis or engine block. Check the battery connections first, make sure they are nice and clean, smeared with Vaseline and properly tightened. If that makes no difference find the earthing strip and clean that connection too.
Oh, and while you are under the bonnet / hood check the thick cables going to the starter motor in case any are slack or burned.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
