Audi Repair/96 Audi A4 wont startAdvertisementFollow-Ups to Answer from Expert GregAlbert wrote at 2007-12-17 23:19:20Greg,I am the original owner of a 98 A4 2.8 Quattro and I just started to have the same problem. Engine cranks but won't start. It starts in the a.m. fine but then if I drive for a short distance turn off the engine and then try to restart it, it MAY NOT. I have no idea when and why it decides not to start. If it won't start, it takes several attempts for it to get going. I am afraid to burn the starter or kill the battery. Haven't done that yet. When I drive to work and park in the garage, the car will always start 8 hrs later on my way back home. My mechanic who serviced it in August just can't figure it out. He ran the diagnostics test on it twice. The car drives beautifully ones it gets going, no problem whatsoever. 98K miles and the engine is superb. I believe it is an electronic problem that has to do with the onboard computer or some sort of relay module. I want to trade the car but I am afraid to go to the dealer and have it stall on me on the lot. I have done some research on the Audi Forums, identified several others with the same problem but not the solution. It stalled on me today, and I called the tow truck. By the time the guy arrived,the car decided to start. It is definitely, not the ignition, nor the fuel pump, or coolant sensor, or the fuel injector, or the V belt or alternator. I recently replaced all those for 5k. I took a stupid gamble because I love this car so much, nothing else in that category drives likes it.

These intermittent problems are always hard to figure out. If it is somewhat predictable, take the car to the garage once you have run it a bit and it won't they can run the diagnostics on it then.

SOURCE: Intermittent lack of full charge

It's the holiday season - take it back to where ever it was purchased and tell them you got it for Christmas and you would just like to exchange it for one that works. They have a 2 year warranty, if you want to go the hard way. You won't need a receipt, or a box. I spoke with Braun Customer Service and they advised me to just take, the one I had, back to the store where it was purchased, and get a new one. This is a great time of the year to exchange it. The Braun Customer Service number is 1-800-BRAUN-11. I'm glad, I just exchanged the one I had, because, my father says it's the best shave he has ever had.

Hey Brad!
So you're saying that there seems to be a relation between the headlights and the engine issue... Seems strange, but I've seen similar symptoms on a car where one of the clamps on the battery poles weren't secured tight enough (even though they did look/feel ok). Could also be that the ground wire (running from the negative pole on the battery) has a bad connection. Check and clean those first, it's both easy and cheap.
If it's not related to the battery you might have a faulty sensor somewhere. If so you should check your onboard diagnostic sensor for any codes.
Good luck mate!

How to input radio code for my s reg audi a4

Okay here are your radio options. Audi will charge about $125 to extract the code from the radio but you may try this first
1. Look in the owners manual. If the car has the original packet with the owners manual and other pamphlets, it is likely that the dealer wrote the code down and put it in there in the glove box.
2. Audi puts the 4 digit radio code on a sticker in the spare tire compartment in the truck. It is a four digit code that will begin with 1 or 0.
3. Audi will use the code 1111 as a default code on rebuilt or replaced radios. try that first.
4. still no luck.... go to the dealer and pay the $125 and have them extract it.
