I've been having intimitant starting problems over the last few months on me A4 Avant 1.8T Sport, but the problem is getting worse. When I start the car, it runs for about a second and then cuts out. As time has gone on, I've noticed that if I turn the ignition on, the immobiliser light comes on. If this light starts flashing, I know that its not gonna start. If i keep repeating this process, eventually the light goes out and stays out, then i know that the car will start and stay running, hope your still with me on this!! There seems to be no consistency with the problem, 1 week it will do it loads and then i can go a month before it happens again. I spoke to a bloke who had a A4 TDi and he had the same problem. He mentioned something to do with an inductance cable behind the dash switch goes faulty of over time. I didn't really understand what he was talking about though. Has anyone had this problem?? Does anyone know of a solution and how much it would cost cos its beginning to get on my tits!!! Thanks alot Phil.
