My 2015 Audi Q3 won't start. Help!

I have a 2015 Audi Q3 and it does not want to turn on the engine. It's as if the security system has activated a short current for the engine as everything else turns on. How can I correct this?

My VW Transporter is vibrating...

Good day,

I am referring to a question sent in by Ken Maher (Ballyger, Co.Galway) on 16 March 2014. He asked about a 2004 VW Transporter that had a vibration at about 2,000rpm when under power/load. I am experiencing the exact same problem with my 2007 Transporter T5. Was there ever a reason other than the CV joints?

Why does my SEAT stop-start not work?

I have a 2011 SEAT Leon Ecomotive SE 1.6 diesel and the stop-start system is not working. It seems to have decided to stop working and when I try to use it the message on my dashboard is 'start/stop is not possible.' I have checked the tyres and the pressure and they seem to be within spec. Can you advise what I need to do to get it back working?

Thanks

Anne Marie

Does my dad's car need a new ECU?!

Done the pedal test on my dad's 2001 Opel Astra (it was running slow and drinking petrol) and got the codes p1122, p1120 and p1155; we were told these are to do with the car's computer and will cost in the region of €1,000 to replace the computer and reprogram. Is this correct or is it easily fixed?

Wiper and fogging issues in my Octavia.

I drive a 2007 Skoda Octavia Ambient 1.4. I am having problems with wet inside the front and rear windscreens, yet the car does not seem damp. Also, the rear wiper stops and starts as it sees fit. What would you suggest?
