Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Engine won't turn over. Clicking noises and panel lights flash on and off. Battery was replaced one month ago.
I had the same problem when i replaced my battery.
1: unplug the battery
2: put key in ignition and turn to Aux Mode (that is the last click befor you turn the car on) Not all the way as if your turning the car on! Do not remove key! leave it in the ignition.
3. Hook up the battery and it will reset the computer. (wait for a few seconds)
4. Turn car on!

Sounds like a bad cell in the new battery or you are having charging problems. Also possible you have a loose connection, corrosion on your battery and/or starter.......
a good place to begin!
battery should have at least 12 VDC (measured by a voltmeter) and 13.8 VDC when charging [120% of battery value].
You can easily get a :jump" and take it to a car part store. They usually have diagnostic equipment to determine if your alternator and/or battery are failing or at fault and they do this for free.
