Ignition switch on 100s and 200s
« on: June 25, 2007, 08:40:43 am »
Old 100 and 200 owners may find their cars not actuating the starter motor after a while. This is a common problem and is best solved by either replacing the relay if its that, or if it is the actual switch simply fitting a button that you press to make the starter go.
 I got under the dash and shorted out all the wires going to the switch and the starter still wouldnt engage so i think maybe my car is the relay at the moment as i have bypasses the switch and it didnt work still. However if i short a wire from the big live cable going to the starter under the car to the upper small wire the starter works fine.
 I will replace the relay today and show you which one it is so it makes it easier if this happens to someone.
The end is nigh, but the end of what is the question?

If it is the same switch as the A4 I have one on trade at the moment. I had to change mine last month (very common on the A4 as the switch is weak) and hence bought two.
