starter problem in damaged audi s5?

10

Asked by Jul 11, 2014 at 11:10 PM about the 2010 Audi S5 Premium Plus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

so i have this broken audi s5 2010,

the buttons on the key do not work, however u can turn the ignition on, but not start the
vehicle.

the damage was not severe, it was it in the right front side, mainly under the car was
damaged, like the radiator needs to be replaced and plastic bumper, and some hoses
too.
it looks like the previous owner drove over something and it went under the car.

the coolant spilled out of the car. The computer says service due and check coolant
level.

when i apply the brake and try to start the car it makes two ticking noises, like the
engine
wont turn over, just the starter makes one tick when u push in the key and one tick
when
you release the key.

i was curious as too if this is a computer problem or not, because i know a vehicle with
coolant or without should start no matter what. yes the engine would start on fire but it
should turn over.

I will probly have a person look at the car to fix it.

but im here to see if anyone can answer this problem.

also i'd like to say that the right side air bags went off, and i do not have the emergency
key, its missing.

When air bag,s deploy,it activated the security system in the car,therefore shutting fire and fuel from it,you may have to get the dealer to reset the computer to be able to crank the car.

From the Audi forum: Just check where the battery is there is a box with what looks like a fuse inside. this fuse blows and you just need to change the fuse, sometimes comes as a fuse inside a box to fit newer models etc.

there is a battery cable with an explosive just like the airbag besides the battery, it explodes when the airbag deploy, you will need to replace this cable also with the airbags.
