I have recently purchased a 2003 a4 2.5 v6 tdi cabriolet with some light front panel damage, and drivers and passenger airbags deployed. I have attempted to start the car, then engine cranks but doesn't start.
Is it possible to start and engine before the airbags have been replaced? I believe the airbag module will eventually need to be reset/replaced but wondering whether this by itself would stop the car from starting.
When they key is turned to the ON position, the ESP light goes off, then after about 5 seconds, there is a click and the light switched ON again. I have run vagcom and get a fault ' 01318 Control Module for Injection Pump (J399) 49-10 No Communication'
Any ideas ?
