Car won't start!

Asked by Dec 26, 2015 at 07:03 AM about the 2012 Audi A4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have. 2012 Audi A4 with 15,000 miles on it, and it
won't start!  (This is the first time this has
happened.). The "park brake" light keeps blinking
on the dashboard, but I did not turn the emergency
brake on.  I leave the headlights on "auto" all the
time.  This way the headlights turn on automatically
and turn off automatically.  Could the battery have
died???

Most probably the battery, check the voltage with your multimeter or remove and take it to your local auto parts store and they can load test it. The blinking park light is a separate issue, most times that is a low fluid condition in your brake fluid reservoir. So you also have a brake fluid leak somewhere. Get the car in for service as soon as you can.

When you do get your vehicle back up and running may want to check to see if the automatic head lights are working by looking at them until they go out to make sure the head lights are shutting off. If not turning off have sensor cleaned ( could be just dirty ) or replaced.
