    Crank sensor seems likely, but check for codes.

    Battery light is normal so long as it comes on after the engine stalls. If its on with the engine running something isnt right.

    Just make sure you have fuel in before taking it to a garage and looking silly! I've had 2 a3's that said it was on quarter when the tank was dry as a pancake! Very unlikely but on off chance. Get some cables to another car and see how long it goes for. Leave the cables on for 10 minutes. If it's still running your alternators probley packed in! Or maybe your battry is goosed!

    Vcds was just a cheap one off ebay the maf was a oem bosch 1 from gsf would the maf stop the turbo spooling up? I have noticed the traction control light has come on but might b that i unplugged the maf to keep it started

    no but the maf can cause problems but it would still boost with maf unplugged so cant be that
    it really needs codes reading to save spending on things its not.

    just replaced my maf as tc light was on , the car would not run at all with the maf unpluged..... also had to clear the ecu with vcds before the new maf would run correctly

    dont know if disconnecting the battery for 5mins would clear the stored faults.

    try downloading vcds lite again and c if it works,,,,,,,, daft question have you checked all boost...intercooler pipes are intact and connected?

    Do you have the correct ftdi cable? No response is usually cable or ecu/fuse. Try turning the ignition on first, then plug the obd side in then plug the usb side it.
    Also have you set up the correct COM port in VCDS options?

    My money is on a big boost leak, like a hose has popped off or split.

    Big airleak maybe?

    If it runs without the MAF and doesnt run with it, that suggests the MAF is feeding back incorrect info. This is sometimes because its faulty, but other times it can be because no air is flowing thru the maf due to a split pipe somewhere.

    Instead of just clearing them, why not tell us what the fault codes are?

    Fair point i will have a look i did take the tip off at the turbo end but didn't bring it up i was testing to see if the turbo shaft hadn't shaped all seems to b fine with the turbo it is a badger5 tip so don't tink it will have split but worth a try cheers
