    Over Sensitive Deadlocks. ?

    Twice gone into local Texaco garage to fill up, and twice became an involuntary captive.

    Turned off ignition,went to pull key out,all dead as a dodo.

    After hanging around for approx 1 hour (first time) it started as normal. thinking obviously I did something untoward was very careful on the second visit,but no,same again,waited 30 mins this time, then started like a good boy.

    Do you think it could be due to the high tec broadband equipment inside the garage,or am I know just a daft old bugger who cant read a manual properly.

    It appears that no other cars have ever had this problem there.

    Off to Audi in a mo,will report back on their findings.......if any.

    Over Sensitive Deadlocks. ?

    My first car had a random problem not starting and not releasing the key

    That was fixed by adjusting the gear lever position sensors

    Had a nice chat with very polite Audi man.......He say,basically sir you're a plank.

    Because I'm always in a hurry. I must have turned off ignition slightly before stick in the 'P' position..we will see.

    Hope it's not what Dave says.
