Guys, I am in a bind right now. I need this car to run, you guys know when your wife's car needs to work!!
Audi A4 1.8TQ 1998 - AEB Engine.
The car started to stall by itself when coming back from work. Would start again for a few minutes. This went on, the car was getting harder and harder to start. Now, no start at all.
I have the car in my driveway at the moment, got codes from my new VAG Hex-Can...will post them later.
1- Coil pack gets voltage, but no spark, or no trigger.
2- I measured the resistance between the center pin of the left bank of the ICM with the 4 pin of the right bank and got different resistance.
1- 7.5 Mohms
2- 0.013 Mohms
3- 7.5 Mohms
4- 7.5 Mohms
This indicates that the ICM was bad, or on its way. I got a used one, (I need it fast) resistance all measured at 8.5 Mohms. I think this one is good.
3- I get throttle body codes,
4- Throttle body: The cable to the throttle is loose, is that normal? I hear the car trying to adjust the TB every time I try to start it.
Also, I hear a clicking noise from under my steering wheel, very often when I put the can to "ON"...like a clicking relay.
Help me out guys,
