I've owned my S3 (2000 plate pre-facelift) for about 9-10 months now, and as some of you may have noticed by my previous threads I seem to be have nothing but trouble with it. I must have had in the region of around 15-20 different problems over time, but my newest (has been happening for about a month) is that it never seems to start first time.
It doesn't matter if it's a freezing cold or scorching hot day... I get in, turn the key and it just turns over and over. So I turn the key back and try again and presto, it starts. It is beginning to happen nearly every time I start the car now, and it always starts without fail on the second time which has got quite annoying and embarrassing at times.
What things need to be checked when this happens? I've been told that it can't be the starter motor, as if it works second time then its fine... I don't know if that's correct or not? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!
