Based on your description, a strong possibility is that the camera's battery terminals/contacts are corroded and therefore not providing good contact to the battery. What is required therefore is to scrape/clean said camera contacts. In some instances, it would help to slightly bend the contacts (or stretch if spring type) to ensure that they provide more pressure to the batteries.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I Have an Audi A4 1.9 tdi

Sounds to be a security problem. Check or replace the battery in the key first. After that. It has to go on a scanner. You might want to get it to an Audi dealer for this. I have several scanners that tell me codes, but I can't do the Audi security.

Electric light flashing

This indicates that your battery isn't functioning properly or is going bad. You need to replace the battery. Bateries are batteries, some are better than others and some wear out faster than others, even though they may be the same brand, eventually all batteries need replacing.
