Hi, I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you today.

Before we get started though,Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see,smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is appreciated.

My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for my time.Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

Let's first make sure that the battery is good and passes a load test, then check the cables for proper installation and tightness and corrosion at both ends. if all this is good, then check the starter.

Thanks, Ron

i would like to request a refund.
Audi Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 1 year ago

Sorry, hit the wrong button. We're just getting started here, so please be patient. There is no wiring diagram for battery terminals, BLACK is negative and RED is positive. It's marked on the battery too.

Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
