Re: The '87 5k-S without spark

One of the first things I'd check are the proximity switch or switches that
are mounted near the flywheel.  If these are open (electrically) then your
computer will not know the position of the engine and will never signal the
ignition system to fire. Check physical appearances of the switches - one of
mine was cracked and worked intermittently - a lot of fun to find!


By the way - since I've never owned a non-turboed audi - if you don't have
proximity switches then ignore this advise.
