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.

2005 quattro , battery is dead and hood wont release.Is it an elecrtonic release?


Heidi, No electric release. The latch is probably stuck. While you pull the interior hood release have an assistant push down and pull up repeatably/vigorously until hood releases from stuck position. Lube latch and cable before closing hood. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have a 1999 Audi A6 quattro my right brake light went out I went to to switch the bulb and the bulb was OK but wont come on now I can't put my shift gear into gear without turning my lights on


There's should be a shift interlock that prevents it from being put into gear unless the brakes are on; check if the fuse it good for the brake lights; it seems to somehow be tied in with the parking lights, which may be feeding into the brake light circuit.

My Audi A3 2.0 fsi sline Quattro is struggling to find gears ( very stiff to change and impossible to find reverse with the engine running)


First check the fluid level and make sure it is correct. If it's good you will then need to go to the dealership to have the codes pulled. I hope the problem is the fluid because it will be expensive otherwise.

Audi a6 quattro 2003 like its in 3rd gear off the start


The controller has likely found a serious fault and put the transmission into default, which shuts off power to the trans and therefore allows third gear only. You need to have it scanned to determine the fault and corrective action.

It could be something minor like a broken linkage, or something serious like, you need a tranny rebuild. You'll need a reputable shop to troubleshoot.

1990 Audi Quattro V8


If the problem is off and on -indeed it is most likely your transmission control module...I have found it handy to have a v8 parts car @ the ready for these type of quick checks.
However if it is a permanent problem it might be something that can be reset by an audi mechanic who has the reset computer box.....only takes a minute.
