Re: Starting problems on Audi 4000cs quattro

I would tend to suspect the starter... when you jump it are you running
from another car or a plug in charger?

You can measure the starter current, and check its wires.

hope this helps a little.

Also measure the charging voltage at the battery and alt. directly with
a meter.

the steering wheel isn't connected to anything, it's just a place to
rest your hands
