    My A3 1.8T Sport isn't working again :-(
    If anyone has vag-com and are prepared to travel to south Sheffield, please let me know, thanks.

    Thanks 1animal1, my car will start up, rev up once and then die. I have spoken to the mechanic who doesn't know what the problem could be, I have another post on here regarding what's wrong.

    I just wanted to try and find out what it could be so that I could tell the mechanic and he can fix it, would the free version of vag-com tell me this ?

    Sorry to be very vague but I don't know the first thing about cars !

    if its a fault code then yes, otherwise your best bet is to take it to JBS at Whittington Moor near James Cycles at end of Dronny Bypass..... they charge around £50 an hour to diagnose....might save you a lot if youve started replacing parts....ill happily wack it on vag com freeware to do a preliminary check though if needs be

    How did you get on with this?

    Sounds like it could be an immobiliser fault:

    As animal said we can check the car over and double check the faults for you.

    Kind Regards

    Mike

    Yeah sounds like the immo to me too - possibly the part which reaads the transponder from the key. But if it was this the immo light should flash.
