located to the rear of the top of the engine next to the radiator reservoir . On top , visible. Two screw.. Phillips or torx. Unplug. remove carefully. Might work if cleaned. Do not use carb. Cleaner. Use alcohol Electric points cleaner, used at radio shops. Wait for it dry . Replace it. Try it. You might want to erase codes beforehand. If no tester available. remove battery cables for a awhile. maybe while doing the removal. If code comes back again, it shouldn't replace it.

Under the car:
You will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.


Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and replace the safety release mechanism broken cable.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

You didn't state the year but could be a couple of issues. First, could have have a cam jump 1 tooth and it is now out of time. Second, you could have a cam or crank sensor failing and they are not syncing. Third, you could have a pcm/ecm failure or issue. Did you get a reference code?

You pulled the fuse on the anti-theft system and upset it!

Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

Audi (VW) is NOT giving out the security codes (chat, phone) anymore. You would need to take the car to the dealer (I figure 1/2 hour to 1 hour labor, or $50-$100?).

Last week, I tried a commercial online service (paid with credit card to have a recourse in case it won't work/scam).

Submitted the serial number of the radio, entered the VIN of the car, and answered where I obtained the radio from (here: ebay). Received confirmation email, and a day later received the code. Entered the code. Worked.

The service I used (I just googled; there may be others):
(mayb VW only?):

Similar (but I did NOT use them yet):

What engine do you have?

Audi Cars &... | Answered on Mar 05, 2019

If you buy new plugs that are correct for your car, they normally come pre gapped (particularly platinum and other 'non copper' plugs). I like to run 36/1000 or 0.8mm. But 1.1mm (43/1000) is also common.

What engine do you have?

Audi Cars &... | Answered on Mar 05, 2019

I would suspect that your fuel pump trips out and/or the fuel filter is plugged. To check, you can pull the fuel hose off the fuel rail, put it in a water bottle and have someone turn the ignition key. The pump will run for a few seconds then shut off. Repeat, and see if there is sufficient flow.

Audi Cars &... | Answered on Mar 05, 2019

Your pump may be worn out. Or you have a leak in the system.
The system has a run time limit for the pump to achieve the desired height (and a pump temperature limit). If the pump is worn or air leaks out, it can take too long and the system 'trips'.
Have you noticed that one corner of the car is lower than the others?
A diagnostic system (VCDS, often called VAGcom) can read the height of each corner, and can help to determine if one of the air bags is leaking (most common), or if a line/valve block is leaking (less common), or if the pump is worn out, which is often caused by a leak in the first place (pump runs all the time to keep pressure in the system).

I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.
