    2000 Sport TDI - Non Starter - Please help before it burns !!!!







    Hi All,
    I have been having some trouble with my 2000 Audi A3 1.9TDI
    (sport).

    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 mileage
    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
    limp mode.

    Came home tried a few things,
    left it half an hour and the battery was dead, back to the same symtoms as
    above.

    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 !!!

    If your DIS/Mileage etc on the dash cluster arent on, then theres a fault with the cluster or it doesnt have any power.

    Given the immo is also inside the cluster, everything points there.

    Yeh thats what i am thinking, do you know if it is meant to have 3 plugs or two?

    I can only ever remember undoing 2 but there is a port for a third and seen other people have said remove all 3.

    Also do you know anyone close to get them tested?

    Cheers

    Well there has been a brake thorugh and its all down to the top member of AS.N Danio.

    Bought another set of clocks (bargin at £35 - Even though they are for a petrol), Danio popped round half an hour later the car is running, what a top bannana !!

    now i just have a new problem, but it is an ovwer boost issue so not that much of an issue, MAf? Egr? or N75?

    Basically the car revs fine untilll you put it under extreme load, ie, high revs going up an hill, car backs off like it has lost boost or turbo, very random !!

    Will post a new thread all about this though !!!

    Thanks again to Danio there aint many people out there like him, top bloke
