Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** water got into the vehicle then you may be in for some serious issues. I would start by load testing the battery. If it is failing then that may be the causes. If it is fine the you would need to check fro water intrusion to see what got wet. Please let me know if you need more help.
Yes, there are a lot of possibilities here. Do you have a voltage meter to run some tests?
Unfortunately it isn't that easy. It may be a quick fix though. Before I know what direction to go in I need to know what the battery voltage is right now and what it does when the ignition is turned on like you want to crank the engine.
What does the voltage do at the battery when you do this? What does it drop to? Do you have an automatic transmission?
I understand. This will give me the information that I need. It may be a starter issue or a relay problem, but we need to test this first.
I need you to hook up your voltage meter to the battery. Tell me what the voltage reading is. Then try cranking the engine and tell me what the voltage reads. Then tell me what the voltage reading is at the fuse box under the hood.
