    Initial cold start taking longer time to start

    I've got a 6 spd S4 that had a faulty clutch pedal switch, alarm horn short to ground and right now has the p1573 code for the motor mount. I took the horn out and replaced the clutch pedal switch. Going to be taking care of the motor mount soon. When I turn the key to start it I have to hold it there for up to 10 seconds sometimes before it fires up. It doesn't crank while holding, it will just all of a sudden fire up. When trying to start it after the initial start it starts up fine. I only have a valet key right now. as well. Anyone have an idea as to what might be causing this? It has a new battery too.

    a stuck starter solenoid is the usual culprit.

    there's a recent thread in the RS4 section about this.
