Audi quattro 1994 won't start or even crank

Asked by Nov 10, 2016 at 12:20 AM about the Audi Allroad Quattro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The Audi wouldnt start when I got it, but all the
electronics in the car worked. I replaced the starter
and it started, I drove it around the neighborhood
twice. After parking in front of my house none of
the cars electronics worked when I turned the key
and it would start again. I disconnected the alarm
system and the electronics began working again,
but the car wouldn't start anymore and it wouldn't
even crank. Ive checked everything I've thought to
check. ---PLEASE HELP--- If i can't figure it out soon
its gonna be scrapped. Thank you in advance.

Could have a bad connection between battery and cable. May check for corrosion. Could have a bad battery cable. Does your alarm have an ignition disconnect? Would also check fuses to verify they are good.

If someone added a relay as part of the alarm, it needs to be energized to close the circuit, look for that relay and if ur gonna leave the alarm off, bypass relay

All the fuses are good, the battery cable is good and the alarm is totally out. We just tried pushing the car and throwing it in gear but we got nothing... i have know idea, someone said they had the same issue and the key fob was the problem, but the key has battery and i dont know what the button on they key does because it doesnt unlock it. I dont know guys, please any other suggestions?
