1998 Audi A6 Automatic
Please, Please could somebody help me?
I bought an Audi A6 7 weeks ago.
The other night driving home a battery light came on, then the ABS light then all of the lights on the dash board came on. A beeping noise started. Then all of the lights went out. Including my head lights!
I got the car home and onto my driveway.
The next day I managed to start the car with no problems at all to get my 6 yr old son to school. I went to tescos, but on my way there the same thing happened. RE: all the lights coming on, I tried driving around to charge the battery but it wasn't charging and then the car just stopped!
Within the last 7 wks of having the car, I have called the garage where I bought the car for £2000 (and my old M-reg BMW which needed some work doing on it) because it wasn't turning over straight away. Sometimes it would take me 2-3 times to turn the engine over!
Someone gave me a jump start with leads the other day at tescos, but as soon as I drove off the monitor showing me the voltage of the battery started going straight back down again.
I made it the quarter of a mile back home!
I don't know what to do. The owner of the garage where I got the car said if I lived closer then he'd come and have a look. But because I live about 10 miles away -He can't!
Do I have any rights considering I got it only 7 wks ago?
He said its prob the alternator and will cost me about £200 which I can't afford.
Please could someone help. I am desperate.
Many anticipated thanks.
