Question about 2008 Audi A5 Coupe

Open Question

My Audi A5 2008 is temperamental starting often taking a few tries before it will turn over despite depressing the clutch pedal as instructedthen last night it would not accept the(advanced) key after I had tried to start unsuccessfully and then removed the key. a few moments later it decided to wind down the windows. We have tried to reset the system by disconnecting the battery and leaving for 15mins before reconnecting- no success We managed to get the windows up by using the key-without fob piece and keeping it in the lock position for a few seconds audi roadside assist turned out to be the RAC who were very pleasant but without any specialist audi knowledge- he took several minutes to locate the battery -which incidentally does not seem to have an indicated position in what is an inch thick owners manual. Any advice please

I just had the same problem and read on another post how to fix it. Unlock your car, open and close all the doors, and lock it manually with your key. It worked.

Hi John.
Inspect the key fob for a place to open it and check for a battery.

SOURCE: I just replaced the battery

Try taking the car to an Audi dealer to reprogram the key.In some cases,depending on the country it was imported from ,it may take several attempts at programming to get it right.Your Audi dealer should do this at no charge.As for removing the battery,always clamp an alternate 12v source to the car cables so the vehicle does not lose a 12v source when changing batteries.These are complicated cars.You need to recode some systems after total loss of 12v.Once again the dealers will help.
Cheers

SOURCE: audi tt 180 quattro car wont start. EPC and E-M system lights on

I would suggest you check oil levels etc. Generally these cars suffer from the air mass meter / air sensor problems aswell as coil problems too. Did you ever get a solution to the problem?

My Audi 2003 A6 is stuck in neutral starts but don't move.


Is it a manual transmission or an automatic? If it's a manual (clutch pedal), then you've got a problem for the shop. If an automatic, it should shift into a forward gear or reverse whenever you depress the brake.

Clutch on 8N ford need help have and 8N ford tractor can not get in gear.park it 9 months ago was working fine when parked push pedel nothing happens


Please check and see if there is a steel brake line from the clutch pedal to the transmission, because I think you might have a "hydraulic" clutch.
This means there is a master cylinder near the clutch pedal and a "slave cylinder" mounted on or near the transmission.
Over time, the slave cylinder can fail, and the tractor will no longer shift for you because the pedal will not release the clutch.
The slave cylinder would need replacement or rebuilt.
God bless your efforts.

Car will not accelerate when gas pushed


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Try different location on the clutch pedal to get it to start


If you look above the clutch pedal you should be able to see the operating switch, depress clutch pedal and see that there is clearane between the pedal and switch, It may be loose or require adjustment, the other option is to remove terminal block and bridge the terminals, this will delete the need for the switch and also the need to depress the pedal to start the motor, Regards Mike

Depress clutch turn key dash lights up. No click no nothing


you may have a bad clutch switch which will only allow the car to start with the clutch pedal depressed.it allows power through the switch only with it depressed to start the car so you won`t start the car with it in gear causing an accident.there will be a switch that the clutch pedal pushes against that allows power to flow through it to start the car.there should be power on one side with the key turned on and power on the other side with the clutch depressed.
