  • No code whatsoever via OBD, computer thinks the car is fine.
Battery is sufficiently charged, and there's no other symptoms of a weak battery. Just turns over and over, never quite firing well enough to start. Plugged fuel filter? Some other non-code problem?

Nothing like this has happened previously, always started right up as expected. Car has 90000 miles.

If it is the original battery it probably IS the battery. Even with a good meter they can fool you.
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
