In summary, my trusty 2000 A4 has decided today to give me some
problems. I left work for lunch, parked the car, and when I returned
it wouldn't start, just rapid clicking and rapid indicator light
When the engine didnt turn I noticed that the "Press Clutch to Start"
display message and some of the other indicator lights were off.
Normally it is on when the key is in. Upon trying to start the car
again some of these lights came on but flashed while something else
was clicking rapidly. I took the key out, waited a few minutes, and
tried again. Still just a lot of clicking. I waited then tried
again, this time when I put the key in all the lights, guages, and
display were completely on. I tried again and it still wouldn't
start. Frusrated, I waited a few more minutes, then tried again and
the engine fired right up like nothing had happened.
I got home and parked the car, happy that I didn't have tow it.
Thinking it was just a fluke, I tried to start the car again, and same
symptoms. Now it won't start.
I would love if anyone can help me troubleshoot this. I am thinking
it could be the starter but would that cause such strange dash light
Thanks in advance.
