    A3 S3 starts but stops

    Hi.. I have an audi 1.8T A3 S3 and it has suddenly come up with a fault... the car will start but stops straight away... a dashboard message says EPC warning.... half the dashboard lights are not working along with the fuel gauge... any ideas... had someones computer run a check and it says that there is a problem with the code 18058'... the cars 5 years old and has done around 60k... any ideas why this has happened?
    Cheers!

    sounds like the immob is cutting in. I'd check the fuses 1st but it is know for the contacts on the back of the display cluster to go. You could try taking it out a bit & wiggle the multiplugs.

    To get at it you need to release the lever for steering wheel adjustment, pull the wheel out & down. Behind that is a panel that needs removed & this will reveal the 2 screws holding the cluster in.
