Question about 1999 Audi A6
When you try to start it now, does the starter motor run or is there no sound at all. If you can hear it running or spinning freely but not cranking the engine, you will have to repair the starter motor. (most probably a bendix replacement)
If there is grinding or loud clicking you will have to replace the bendix and repair the ring gear. (the ring gear can be repaired in place if it can be reached with a dremel.)
If there is no sound you will have to check the start circuit by firstly activating the starter by connecting a battery positive (+) charge to the solenoid start terminal on the starter and work your way back to the start relay, Neutral switch and ignition switch.
If you have no electrical experience, an auto electrician or mechanic should be able to solve the problem easily.
Hope this will help you.
