    Hi there wondered if you guru's could help!

    Only started doing it since xmas day, i unlock the car stick the key in the ignition wait for the DIS to power up says ok i then turn the key and nothing no electrics!

    Its weird i immidiately thought Battery but i only just changed it a few months ago.

    Weird thing is i open the bonnet close it leave it a bit and hey presto everything is there again.

    I cant get my head round this one do i just change the battery or is it something more serious???

    Any-one got any ideas? All i can think of is something is draining my battery whilst its parked up, I'll get a voltage test on the battery and see what voltage its putting out.

    Its a fairly new battery but you never know.

    Weird sometimes its ok others its not

    I'd maybe get vag com on it just to see if it throws anything up.

    The A3's have a strange electrical system, i cant jump another car from my car so maybe there's something similar kicking in with ur car when starting
