    My audi a3 has been playing up it was fine then all of a sudden it won't start and the instruments won't work it started running for a second then just stopped and now it doesn't start at all.
    Do u guys think it's imobiliser related? No imobiliser light comes on? The ignition switch broke a few weeks ago but hs ran ok but i changed it when it wouldnt start but to no avail Any help would be great cheers guys

    The first one could be old, you get this when a battery is disconnected or failed have you tried clearing the fault?
