Re: changing out the ignition switch
Remove the lower dash panel to see the ignition switch assembly. On the "back-side" of the aluminum thingy that wraps arounfd the steering column, you will see 2 bolts, but no way to remove them. Using a Dremel and a cut-off wheel, cut a line that would resemble a cut that you can place a flat blade screwdriver into. Cut it deep enough to get a good bite with the screwdriver. Loosen the bolts just like you were removing a regular screw. The bolts are not that thight. When the lock was installed, the 2 bolt heads snap off at the proper torque; this is an anti-theft feature.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

it may not be your ignition switch. i have the same car, same prob.. i just replaced the ignition switch n still nothing.. it may be the ignition cylinder.? but it may very well be electrical. hard to say because im still stumped myself. if u have the steering wheel that moves up and down its likely the wires in the ignition cylinder snapped, but if u have to get a new one its goin to have to be from a dealership which means $$$..
Ignition switch is on the opposite side of where u start the vehicle with the key, so u have to take the ignition off may have to take the radio off if it helps on this model then u have to take off a couple plastic peaces off to see the ignition switch and to replace
if you look on column right under switch you will see a small hole, theres the lock pin for the ignition, put key in ignition then with a small nail or pick stick in the hole push in then turn key slow you should feel pick push in the pin continue truning switch until a the dash lights come on and keep pushing in, then pull swith out, take new switch and turn key to same point as old slide in and turn key off, your done hope this helped.
try using an ignitor and/or ignition coil from a known good Forerunner.If it works replace the ignitor or coil.This code means the ECM or computer module is not getting anything from the ignitor or ignition coil.
The 1993 90 instrument cluster is very sensitive. Even having bulbs out can mess it up. You should consider replacing the ignition switch. It is easy you can do it yourself, do NOT let Audi dealer's service tell you it's $500 to do it. You can get the part for less than 30 bucks on ebay. Undo the screws under the steering wheel, take off the plastic, take out the 2 screws on the instrument cluster, take out the cluster enough to see the ignition switch. THis is the tricky part: get a small screw driver and LOOSEN the small screws that keep the ignition switch in place.Replace. Re-tighten, put it all back and you're done.
Ignition switch is EVERYTHING in this car. Oh, do not by the switch with the pink plastic where the key would go, buy the WHITE.
