I have been having some trouble with my 2000 Audi A3 1.9TDI
Due to a broken leg the car has
not moved for over 4 months, so changed the battery as my old one was dead.
Now the thing wont start, well it does for
about a second then dies, please see faults below;
No Key symbol on dash
No service indicator
Glow plug light flashes
Petrol Gauge does not move
Side Light symbol is constantly on / flashing
I have tried all
the main earth wires;
Behind the sub
Under the battery
Behind the steering colum
Behind the clocks
Left hand side kick panel
These have all been cleaned, and it did start (including
everything on the dash coming back on), ran well until a hill then went into
Came home tried a few things,
left it half an hour and the battery was dead, back to the same symtoms as
I have not been able to plug vag-com in as i dont know anyone in the area (wigan).
I am thinking about sending the clocks and ecu off for testing, but this could end up been really pricey !!!
