Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a A4, 2004 that refuses to stsrt. I drove the
car and had no problems. Parked it and the next
time I went to drive the car it wont start. Engine

dash keeps flashing. This never happened before.
The fans on the car use to switch on while the
ignition is off. Had to disconnect the fans when
parking the car. Can you please assist me and tell

hi check crank or cam sensor


When the dashboard gear lights are flashing, the car wont start. On my car this problem goes with the automatic selector lever lock light that stays off. This light is situated between the park and reverse light. By applying the footbrake this light should go off, instead it stay off and the diesel pump is not pumping. The car is swinging but not starting. can anybody help?

Hi there, on my car the fuel pump was not running. My technician had found water under my computer box and all the relays burnt. Even the fuel relay. Try and open your computer box and check all the relays under the box.
