Hi,
new to this forum - wonder if anyone can help.
got in my 98 A3t last night engine turned over but no start.
I had no ignition lights with key turned and elec windows etc would not work.
After working the ignition key a few times everything sprang into life.
Seems like a fault with either the ignition switch or relay.
Wondered if anyone else has had any problems before I start ripping it to bits. Cheers Ray.
 
Sounds like the chip in the key was not talking to the dash properly. Do you use a spare key at all? Just a guess, but why not try changing the battery in the key just in case?

Cheers

Ben

Took cover off and tapped switch and everything seems ok again. Obviously will go again so contacting vag parts for price of switch

cheers ray
