    hi
    for the first time in a while i let my audi hit the reserve light, it wasnt empty, anyway it struggled to start after a while cranking and a big puff of smoke it started then the brake warning lights came on??????? anyway i drove to a station filled it up again struggled to start, i gave it a good run had no problems on the drive was as normal, stopped it gave it 30 secs and again it struggled to start with brake warning light coming on, its been check and showed that there are no fault codes, would this be a leak in a diesel pipe allowing air in ?or something more serious
    thanks for any help

    there no faults codes surely there would be one if it was ABS controller ? even a intermittent code
    the brake light doesnt always come on when it struggles to start

    It was an example to enfuse you to do a search online, there are a number of reasons, you need to research, read & test things like battery, to ascertain where the fault may lay, as we cant diagnose over the internet, we can suggest reasons, but it will need your interaction to get to the bottom of the problem, at least the info provided starts you along the path :)

    sorry, i have searched online google etc, what is the point of a forum without asking questions and since i cant find the answer i`d thought i`d ask here, maybe someone has had the same problem, i wont know that unless i ask :)
    i should made myself a little clearer, there is no problem with the battery, it turns over fine, the battery is strong, its like there lack of fuel but when it does starts its fine, drives as normal with no lack of power
