View Full Version : RS6 - crank, no start

02-24-2016, 05:40 AM
Drove fine. Parked for dinner. Back: crank, no start.
Being towed here this morning.

Any tips/suggestions to for the first troubleshooting steps?

I plan to first hook up VAGcom, see what codes are stored.
Then clear codes.

IIRC, crank sensor ("engine speed sensor") can cause 'crank, no start'?
Quick test maybe:
In engine module, measuring block will bring up engine rpm. while cranking, observe if numbers (100 or so rpm?) are showing. Would that rule out the crank sensor?

Next, would check for spark.
Next, would check for fuel.

Other suggestions for 'crank no start'?

If the is a C5 RS6, then you are posting in the wrong section. Should post over in the C5 section.

We must have the most number of erroneous cross posts of any other model line. C7s and C5s all day!
