Customer Question
Just bought my daughter...

Just bought my daughter a 2010 Audi A4 2.0t Quattro. When driving it him (700 miles) the check engine light came on. Codes are PO016 (timing, camshaft sensor) & PO299 low turbo boost. I have an appointment to take it into have checked and serviced even thought the light goes off sometimes. But just got in it after driving it today and it won't start. It turns over, but won't start like it's not getting fuel. Checked the fuel pump fuse and it was ok. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

When would come on, it just stayed on, didn't blink

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your A4 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I had an appt Monday at a VW/Audi shop in Birmingham, AL. But now it's stranded in the Lowe's parking lot.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I did notice the engine oil level was close to the min mark, but no oil light is on. And it did this once on the way home when on a steep downhill slope parked 1/2 tank

HI,

Ok, the P0016 is the reason for the no start. Possible causes are camshaft position sensor, open or short in the wiring harness, or the engine control module.

Most of the time it is the sensor. It is located on the cylinder head near the oil fill opening - see attached

Check the wiring harness at it for any cuts or breaks and repair wire if found. If ok, replace the sensor.
