Re: O.K., what did I do to this one?

I had a similar problem with my 1982 Coupe.  After muttering a string of
curses to the Audi Gods, I had the middle of nowhere thought to check the fuel
pump relay.  It turns out that the relay was loose and all I had to do was
give it a bit of a push and it started right up.

Good luck
1982 Coupe  (62,000)

     The backup '87 5K CS TQ has joined the primary one in semi-retirement.  I
was driving on one of the roads at the plant and it stopped running.  Died.
Right there.  Engine will turn with the started, there is compression this
time.  When I turn the ignition on, the fuel pump did not cause the warm up
regulator to click, so I suspected a bad fuel pump.  Changed the pump, still
no fuel.  Also no spark, which I think is normal if there is no fuel.
     What sensors have the power to shut off the fuel pump?  I have checked
pins 1 & 4 at the fuel pump and there is voltage there.  With a weak battery
it was 9v, have the battery on a charger now.
     Any suggestions on which sensor(s) to look at?  Any other items that may
have an impact?  Any loose wires that could do this?
     All help appreciated.
