    Hi all, after some help again.

    Basically my A3 will not start at all without bump starting it, when ignition is on radio and air bag sign on centre console will start flashing and windows and wipers will not operator.. lights work outside and dashboard. there's a clicking noise also.

    Joee, first thing I would do it to go get the battery load-tested. A bad battery will cause all sorts of strange things to happen. If the battery is OK, then a VCDS scan is in order to try to diagnose what is wrong. Good luck.

    Thanks for the info, it was just the battery!
