HELP!!! DEAD 5KTQ!!!!
I need some serious help here...
Last week we had some pretty bad rain up here in New Hampshire.
Well come to find out, I have a leak and rain water leaked into the car
and behind the dash. Not knowing any of this, on Tuesdays I got into the
car early in the morning and tried to start it. Nothing! The car had no
power at all, nada, zip, ziltch. Not wanting to fool with it 10 minutes
before a class I left it and walked to class. Then, later in the day I
had a friend come down and try to jump me. We hooked everything up right
but got nothing. My car was not taking any power. Chris says, "Wait, we
must not have a godd connection." He fooled with the wires and suddenly
everything came on in the car (clock, dash lights, EVERYTHING!). The
only problem was that I did not have the key in the ignition. Chris
says, "Well, we got everything running, try to turn it over." I try to
turn it over and it goes dead again, not even power to the clock. I have
the car towed to a shop (the sh** I took from my roommates, ie.
European car, etc.). The mechanic find water in the dash. The wires
were floating in water! Well, everything has been dried and tested and
still a dead quattro.
Please, if you have any suggestions AT ALL, please e-mail me.
Also, if the fix can not be determined, or is too much money (for me,
I've put way too much money into this car) I will be selling it. any one
interested (Fuchs, 110k, & almost perfect except for the reason it is dead.
Please I need help,
