Question about Audi Cars & Trucks
I parked up at home after a great 1hr 30min drive in the rain! car running great without fault. I turn engine off collect everything from the car which took a few minutes. and noticed that there was no power, the remote key wouldn't blip and there was no lights (inside or out) no dash warning lights to give me any clue. Any ideas??

I would start with a jump start or hooking a jump box to it. If everything comes alive, replace the battery and get the charging system checked. If that doesn't work, there are a number of different items. Fuses, ignition switch, main ecm relay, all are viable culprits.

Hopefully it's the one of the engine bays communal earths or the battery connections.
Remove them (don't lose any cables) clean with sand/emery paper, replace and seal with grease or vasaline to prevent future occurrence.
Hope this helps.

check battery cables make sure they are clean and tight and make sure the alternator charging battery. first check battery volts. should be 12.6 volts. with engine running alternator out put at battery should be 13.5 - 14.5 volts. if not either alternator failed.check alternator power feed wires and voltage regulator wires for damage or make sure electrical wires has tight connection.check alternator battery.first turn off radio before before disconnecting negative battery cable.
