Question about 2004 Audi A4
Hi, I just purchase a 2004 A4 3 months ago and everything was running good but recently I haven't drive the car for 4 days and when I turn the ignition, the car have a clicking sound and the engine don't start. I notice the radio, head lights and everything else works fine, but just unable to start the engine. Is it the starter that needs to be replace or is there something I can do ? please advise...
You should check and see the batttery smart visor indicator (if applicable - see owners manual)
this may be that the battery has been drained and does not have enough power to rotate the starter. lights, dashboard, instruments light up ok as the voltage is there but the power (amperage) is low. please refer to owners manual on how to recharge your battery. bare in mind that removing the baterry from the care will reset systems (audio, alarm) and you wil need to recode them by using the codes provided with the car.

Actually, I changed the battery for a BRAND NEW Dealer batter I bought from a VW Dealer, and it solved my problem. Was low in juice.
