Ok so my 97 A3 1.6 wont start. A few weeks ago my car would only allow me to start it after three tries with the service light being displayed which may have something to do with this.
Had the RAC out and he said it was a bad battery, changed the battery and it was working up until today. Even changed the key fob battery which did allow the car to start temporarily.
I have no idea what is causing it to not fire up, it cranks but doesn't start. Also, it does usually start when I disconnect and reconnect the negative lead. I know I should use VAG to read any fault codes but surely someone has had this problem before?
