RE: difficult with cranking engine

Couple of thoughts:

     1- Is your battery fully charged.  Try Cranking while getting a jump
         from your other car.

     2- It also could be the starter that can turn the engine fast enough. 
 I just
          replaced mine.  Not sure how you can check this??


ps:  Please make sure that you identify your make(hopefully it is an Audi)
model, year of your  car when posting....
