Hello, I have an audi 2013 A4 that won't start, no lights on, MMI Works, but won't turn on, No way to get car out of park to tow. Prior to problem car was at a panel shop for some cosmetics repairs and the battery needed to be often take out. Now the car won't start and prior to this the car starts, the car hasn't being driven for a month while at the panel beater shops but all along it starts even at the panel shop till recently , often says Ignition Lock defective. I was told the car steering column software could be corrupt, any one with similar issue?

I have had over $300 in repairs in the lst 2 years on my Audi 1.8 liter convertible. Now the transmission shakes and the engine light comes on 24/7 I have 130,000 on the car but it is in mint condition sans the engine.
My 98 has a big turbo kit and sometimes it spudders or hick ups when accelerating/shifting. It also pops/back fires when shifting under load. Why would it start this now? Never had these issues when first bought the car?
it just started
There was some dark fluid from under the car that came out, the the issues happened. However, windows and alarm started not working first. Car inconsistently skips when accelerating.

Dear Sir/Madam,

What could be the cause of the power loss,jerking and cutting on an AUDI A4
Doesn't matter how little I put it still stalls
Problem continues.

Intermittent. Always overnight.
tried the pull cord in the truck access and it moves a little but not enough to free it to open
Recently experiencing a lagging in turbo and hearing a rattling underneath the car. Took it to Audi dealership to run diagnostic ($150.00). Result came back as wastegate malfunction and said needs replaced. Dealership estimate is $981.00 plus tax including labor. Is this a reasonable cost for this repair? Thank you!
