Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. When was your last time having the vehicle serviced? This issue could be caused by many different things like the O2 sensor, cam sensor, spark plugs, etc. This light means that there is a trouble code stored in the system. The first action that needs to be taken is to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes. The code that is retrieved will direct you towards the problematic area, and then repair can begin. If you are near your local auto parts store, then they usually offer free vehicle scanning. I know that Autozone and Advance does. Once you retrieve the code, if you need further information on the issue, you can provide it to me here, and I will be able to give you a complete description and understanding of the issue.

I have an Audi Q7, 2008. its done 190000kms. Suddenly its letting me down. Numerous times it won't fire, the starter motor appears fine, it turns over, but it just won't fire. No warning lights. I can usually guarantee that if I can get it going, it won't start again after a short time. Often I have to leave it a few hours, even overnight, then it will start. But not always! I've had the battery replaced, the fuel lines flushed, a new fuel filter. … read more
