With no one around you having the Euro-spec diagnostics, you may have to trace the problem based on the behavior of the car. What is it doing (or not doing) that is different from before? Do you have issues with driveability? Transmission shifting issues? Poor gas mileage? Something else maybe?

If you can't diagnose via the computer and codes, it's going to come down to trial and error, and educated guesses, to find out what is wrong, and that'll have to be based on what you observe about the car's driving habits. It's not impossible by any means, but it won't be as easy since you won't know at least a starting point that the codes could give you.

Just for kicks, find out if there's an independent European shop near you (someone who caters to Audi, VW, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Saab, Volvo, etc), and call them up. Explain your situation and see if they either have the Euro software, can get it, or know someone who does - that may help a lot and they may actually have something that can scan your car.

It sounds like you have a bad actuator. This is attached to the starter and has a solonoid that pushes the starter motor gears into the engine gear. If the solonoid is faulty this may happen. Also check alignment of the same.

Battery died, replaced altenator, got new battery, battery still dieing

Since you replaced both the alternator and the battery, it should be working and the first thing to check is for loose and corroded connections.
In any case, this is what you should do to check the health of your car charging system with the assistance of a good (no need for an expensive unit) digital multimiter:
1) With the car engine not running and ignition off, measure the voltage across the battery: it should read around 12.8 Volts and anything below 10.5 Volts would indicate a faulty battery with possibly one or more shorted cell.
2) With engine running and idling, measure the voltage around the battery terminal: it should read around 13.8 Volts and any thing below 13.5 Volts or much above 13.8 will indicate a faulty alternator OR alterntor regulator.
3) Repeat step two by gently reving the engine: the correct 13.8 Volts should be maintained even with car light on.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

Have your alternator checked. Start the vehicle and disconnect the Negative battery cable. If the vehicle dies the alternator is bad or you have a bad voltage regulator.
