    Hello all
    new to the forum , recently picked up a 2000 audi s3 and I've started having strange issues with starting it after driving it long journeys.
    I can drive and do a lot of start stop runs or even long distance then after a while the car only cranks and won't start , the fuel pump doesn't seem to be priming when the ignition is on but normally does on all the other times . Could this be the fuel pump relay at fault?

    Sorry relay number - tps have supplied me with relay 409 which I know is wrong as on my fusebox I don't have a relay 409.

    After receiving 3 wrong relays from tps I've finally got hold of the right one
    Relay 167
    Hoping this cures the issue now
