Wondering if anyone can help - I have a 2000 S3 that won't start.
Just over a week ago it was struggling to start after being sat for more than a few hours (overnight). This got worse over the next few days until I ended up having to jump start it. I checked the battery which seemed to be on it's way out so decided to replace it. New battery started the car fine every time over the next few days until I came to it last night and it wouldn't start. Couldn't hear the engine trying to turn (like it does when the battery is low/flat). When I turn the key I can't even hear the relay 'click', or any other noise. I've checked the two fuses I can see on the relay panel and all fuses that look like they could be related to the ignition system on the main fuse panel. All ok.
Any ideas of what to try next? You'll have to forgive me for being a car maintenance novice but I'm also a tight bugger so would rather not have to pay someone to fix it if I can do it myself!
Any help greatly appreciated!
