Thanks for the quick response Gary!

That does remind me that I have heard about a similar upgrade from Audi. 
If that were in deed the problem it would be an easy test to connect a
jumper to the solenoid to see if it would pull in.  The toughest thing
would be not getting burned or shorting out that heavy gauge wire to 
ground.  I'll give that a shot.

Thanks again!
