Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 1996 WV Polo that doesnt start intermittently (more often than not) If I interfere with some f the relays, eg pull them out and put them back then it does start on some occasions. How do you identify the Fuel relay?
When you turn the ignition switch on, the gas pump relay should turn on and go off to pressurize the system. You can keep the car in neutral/park, get down as low as you can to the driver's floor board and reach up and turn the ignition switch to on [but not to the point that you actually allow the engine to turn over]. Repeat this step until you hear the relay and can actually feel the little black (box) that is actually performing an electromechanical switching.
Check here first----> , it is usually on a diagram within or near your fuse panel.
It is a start. Secondly, I'd check for any play/movement on your negative/positive terminals of your battery and starter motor. Should these be snug, loosen them and clean the terminals on your battery AND starter. This may be "stupid" and "obvious" to most but they don't do it and that is usually the main cause... even if it "appears good".
