Customer Question
Hi there, I've been...

Hi there, I've been having issues starting my car. It also will sporadically die on me while I'm driving it

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yeah all the interior lights and headlights will turn on but the battery will be too drained to start

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2004 audi allroad

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

Yeah I'm trying to but can't tell if I should be replacing alternator, starter, ignition cables, battery cables based on the issues I'm having

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

No that's about it thank you
