Audi A4 Shuts off while driving

Asked by Mar 09, 2017 at 10:34 AM about the 2003 Audi A4 1.8T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I was driving the other day and my car lost
complete power. Power steering went out dash light
don't work and can't lock doors. Also the speed
Gage will get stuck at the speed that the car shut
down at. We pushed it to a safe location and after
about an hour it turned on again drove it to my
friends house and after about 2 hours thought it
would be fine to drive home. Drove about a quarter
mile and had a complete shutdown again. I had it
checked at autozone the day before and they said I
need to replace the crankshaft positioning sensor.
But does that explain all the dashlights turning off
and the gadgets stuck at 20mph.

I got a 2003 A4 Audi and white smoke coming out my tailpipe and shuts off randomly
