Diagnosis & Recommendation - Upon initial inspection we found that the battery was completely dead. After charging it we were able to start the vehicle and verify that the alternator was also not working properly. We advised the customer than they should replace the alternator and the battery based on the age of the present battery. We sourced an OEM alternator and battery from local Audi dealership along with some other items that should be attended to while the vehicle is apart.
