Haven;t you heard of don't fix something that isn't broken? Why did you replace those parts and are they Audi specific parts to your car? Does your engine turn over and crank? Have you checked your codes? for errors? Does the fuel pump prime when you turn the key to accessory mode? You need to provide more infomation man. You should take it to a local shop and get it checked out, usually free or cheap. When you know whats wrong with it then you can plan on the fix

The starter was bad that I knew before engaging. And the batt. Was dead 100%. What I got from the tech at a local lock smith is. That when u remove the starter it automatically erased the program on the key. So I have to get the key re-program. The fuel pump does prime. When I put in the and turn it to accessories everything light up I think and the buzzers sound good. The battery has plenty of juice. But when I turn the key pass accessories to start nothing.
