I have a 2001 audi with k04 with a custom tune. a couple days ago i left the dome light on and the car wouldn't start. i figured it was the battery. last night me and my roommate want to go some where so we tried to push start it. still wouldn't start we had a group of 4 push which should be more than enough people to get it to start. now today i borrowed one of those battery pack things to start it, all the light turned turn on and work. when you turn it over all you get is clicking the crank shaft is not turning over so it should be starter. right? but the only problem with that is that push starting it still should work with a bad starter. if you have any ideas on what it might be that will help a lot. i am going to go get a OBD 2 to check for any codes.

Are you push starting it right? Put it in neutral, push it, put it in first and drop the clutch. The starter should not matter if you are push starting it as far as i know.
