I purchased a coolant gas kit and checked/added some gas, so that is OK. The compressure loads the engine when I turn the a/c on, so that seems to be running. Is there an electrical component involved? as I did have some trouble with the electrical juction just next to the battery (+side) But I cant think what else it could be. Help?

It being doing this for about 2 to 3 months off and on.
Everything is working fine when I plug a little device used for music into the power port (the second cigarette lighter). It turns on but I don't have time to fuss with it. A minute later I notice it's turned off. I check my main cigarette lighter and it isn't working either. Then I realize that worst of all there is no air coming from any of my vents! I try turning the knob off and moving it 1 through 5, but no air is coming out at all. Not hot or cold.
When I press the button for A/C, the indicator lights up and I can hear the engine working a little harder the way it normally does when the A/C is turned on but still no air from the vents. The indicator lights for the buttons to switch from outside air to inside air also seems to light up. JUST NO AIR FLOW & CIGARETTE LIGHTERS DON'T WORK.

I figured it was just a fuse so I checked them all (except the larger, gray, square ones - I don't know how to check those) and they were all fine. There haven't been any symptoms that this system was having trouble, it just stopped working exactly as I described. And of course this happens when it's 100 degrees outside every day.

PLEASE HELP! I absolutely can NOT afford to just take it to just blindly take it to a shop It seems weird to me because I thought the cigarette lighters were different systems than the HVAC, but what do I know? I just pray it is an easy fix and not a major part replacement with a lot of labor involved.

Thank you!!!!

I have looked everywhere on the lower radiator and simply can not see a drain. Thanks in advance - Dom
what are the pro and cons as far as maintence on this vehicle. The dealership is selling for 5 grand with under 90,000 miles.
Long story story,(I'll skip having towed twice)the car dies in traffic,scans a bad sensor,the reason it lost spark.It's replaced, and the car still drops.The mechanic now feels that it was the wiring harness,and it's connection,says he doctored it,but I should drive too far until the fix is confirmed.
My question: Can the harness connection be replaced?Am I'm better off sticking with OEM sensors,etc? I'll probably get rid of the car-I don't trust it to be reliable,but I hate to quit on a car that runs so nicely and has so many new parts.
(btw,fuel pressure is aok)
My car is in the shop for a coolant issue, the coolant light came on and it started beeping so I pulled over and it looked like it was smoking. I had it towed to the Audi dealership and they told me I needed a new thermostat and coolant so I said to go ahead and fix it which they quoted me at $480. Now they are telling me I need a new water pump but the timing belt looks like it has been replaced not too long ago and they don't need to fix that. They are now quoting me an extra $600 just for the water pump itself not including labor. How important is this and is this a fair price?
After replacing the output sensor on my car the odometer and speedometer stopped working.
