Question about 2000 Audi A4

2 Answers

Car will not Start. HELP PLEASE

I have a 2000 audi a4 Quattro 1.8T. Lately its been acting like it doesnt want to start. For the past day or so I have had no problems, until tonight. I went out to start it and nothing. The lights radio and everything else are working just fine. I got it "jumped" but that made no difference. It wont even turn over. What can I do? I had the timing belt replaced a year ago so I cant imagine that being the case.

Really really need help

    It may click once or twice but thats about it. I tried disconnecting the battery to let the system reset but nothing...

    Actually I haven't had the starter replaced, much less even thought about it. It is a manual. Will that make the breaking difference?

It could be your starter that is defective.
Have you replace it before?
Is your car automatic or standard?

    The reason I asked if it's standard transmission is to try to start the car. Try to start the car by pushing and once the car is moving put the car on 3rd gear and push the clutch all the way inside quickly and release it. That should start the car.

Can you hear the starter kick in? Are there any clicks or sounds at all when you turn the key?

    I would pull the battery and have it tested. I had the same thing happen on my 2000 VW which is pretty much the same car. Has same motor and everything. It ended up still being that the battery was bad. I had some power but it would't charge or jump and I could get the starter to turn some.

Audi a4 stalled and wont start


Remove the air filter and squirt a bit starter fluid into the intake manifold , then immediately try to start the car if it starts , that is an indication there is no fuel going to the engine ,check the fuel system,if it does not start , you may have an ignition problem.

2000 Audi A4 quattro with abrupt gear shifting & low oil pressure


I hope that you had the proper weight oil installed, at your oil change. If your oil is up to the proper level, and it's rattling ,this is VERY bad. White smoke usually means steam in the exhaust, and that means a blown head gasket. Check your coolant level. I wouldn't drive it anymore......until someone knowledgeable can diagnose it!!!!!

Re: Car will not start. HELP PLEASE


Sometimes the ignition switch itself fails. It's about $35 from a dealer and is fairly straightforward to install. It's at the end of the key cylinder opposite the key slot, held in by two set screws removed with a flathead screwdriver. It's the actual electronic connection between key cylinder and the car's electrical and starting systems. You have to remove the steering wheel and column trim to access it, but with the right tools (Torx bits sized T30 for the airbag bolts and T55 for the center steering wheel bolt), plus the usual Philips and flathead screwdrivers, and a set of metric hex keys, you can have it changed and reassembled in about an hour.
