View Full Version : A4 TDI Avant 130 won't start - help!

Hi there

Just joined the forum, some cracking info around it.

I went to go to work this morning in my 2002 A4 130PD, the car started in the drive, then i reversed about 6 feet and it cut out, and it won't start now (yes it's got diesel in it!).

I have only had the car a few months, and it has been a little bit lumpy on starting in the morning, only for a few seconds, sometimes there is a little bit of smoke at the same time.

Can anyone tell me whats worth checking out first? I have access to a VAG 1552 diagnostic box so may plug this in later (had to cycle to work in the p*****n rain so I wasn't late!).

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Have just ran a fault test with the VAG 1552 tester, and the following appears:

18071 P1663 035

Can anyone identify this fault code, and what will need doing to solve the problem?
