1 cylinder failed. Ignition module needed... £800 !?!?

Discussion in 'A4/S4 forum(B5 Chassis)' started by imported_AudiOwner96, Aug 5, 2005.

  1. My second engine cylinder just failed in my '96 1.8t sport. I tried changing round the spark plugs to see if it was that - no. Not the spark plug connectors either so took it to a garage.

    They looked at it and said it was going to need a new 'ignition amplifier module'. Quote including parts = £800.

    They reckon its a very common problem on high milage A4's of this age.

    Any Comments??

    I had this same problem and had it repaired at an Audi dealers for a lot less than £800.

    My A4 has done 136k so you are not alone.

    Hey bandito,
    I had what sounds like the same problem, one cylinder stopped firing. The module is about 2 inches square and lives on the airbox lid, with a connector either side. Its only held on with 2 screws so is easy to change. I got mine from AMD in Bicester, I think it was about £90 or so.

    I hope it is the same module. The Haynes manual calls it the 'power output stage for ignition coils module'.
