My Audi 5000 has been such a good car. I bought it for only $950.00 2 yrs ago. The only work, other than maintance, was the break light switch behind the break pedal. I LOVE THIS CAR!!!
My problem now is it won't start. It seems like it looses battery power when the solenoid engages. then nothing. The lights on the dash board dim just prior to the solenoid engages. If I jump start it, it starts right up and will run till I turn it off.
I'm thinking its the soleniod. Any Ideas would be appreciated.

This sounds stupid but your battery may be shot. If Ok check/ tighten/ clean connections to battery terminals.
