Hi chaps, My A8 had started stalling 2seconds after cranking more and more recently. After a while I noticed the little Car/Key (Immobiliser) Icon blinking away at me (duh!). Anyway, one of my spare keys made the issue go away until last weekend when it left me stranded at my local DVD rental store for 1hour! Eventually got it restarted (didn't really know how!?) then came home to look on this site for tips, fear great expense and punishment from my local stealer was imminent! Luckily I saw one of the posts that mentioned the Ignition Barrel sensor wire getting "trapped/kinked" by the electric steering column movement. Thinking this would be too good to be true, I moved the column up and in to about the most central position possible and the immobiliser lamp went out!!! All has been well since then (but I've turned off the memory function for the wheel and seat so as not to disturb this apparent perfect setting!) Has anyone fixed this issue permanently/properly please? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif Was it an easy DIY job, or do I need to spoon feed my knowledge of the problem to my local stealer to let them fix it 'properly'!? Something I hate to do obviously their work is usually very expensive and not very well done! Many thanks in advance for any help that people can be with this? Cheers, BigJ.
