Audi A3 2005 1.9TDI- Wont start until EML is illuminated- Videos to show

Asked by RyanSnr Apr 08, 2020 at 12:45 PM about the 2005 Audi A3

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car basically wont start and can do this for
anywhere between 2 secs and 5 mins until I turn
ignition on and off repeatedly until the Engine
Management Light is illuminated and then it will
start and drive no problem.
When the Engine light doesn't Illuminate the
Speedo reads 0miles of fuel but when it is
Illuminated it gives a correct reading any idea if it
could be fuel related? Also get Glow Plug light on
but its not Glow plugs ive had them checked and it
does start and drive. Ive included videos took
around 3 minutes of turning ignition on and off for
the EML to come on but when it did I can drive as
long or as far as with no problems?

Any ideas?
