So I own a 2011 A3 TDI and it is not starting after I was pulling fuses out to check for blown out ones.

Initially, me and my dad were troubleshooting an electrical issue with the driver rear tail light (turn signal wasn't working) and we started checking fuses.

I went to the main fuse box and started pulling fuses to check them. I went all the way to the 40A fuses and when we tried to start the car it refuses to start. My dad thinks the fuel pump got shut off because I may have tripped some kind of safety thing when I started pulling fuses. Were thinking it was because of a main fuse. But were not certain.

Can anyone give some suggestions on what to do next? I have a feeling I royally screwed my car up and may have to take it to a dealer. Thanks in advance.

Forum Rules and Guidelines


This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company 6 months ago that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

How long is a piece of string?

Re-check the fuses you pulled make sure they are in the correct slot if the car ran before.

I took it to a local mechanic and he said some of the fuses were in the wrong slot. So that was on my dumb ass for not putting them back properly. I'm taking a picture of the fuse box next time I have to mess with it BEFORE I mess with it.
