Please clarify, Although the alternator light is on, can you start the car? Does it turn over, but not start? If it won't turn over, you 1st need to charge the battery and try to start it. If the light remains on, have your alternator checked, it probably isn't charging the battery. How old is the battery? If it doesn't charge up, it should also be tested to make sure it's ok. Let me know the answers to the above, and let me know what happens. good luck countrycurt0

Good day, can anyone help me with torque specs and sequence for a 2002 volkswagen jetta 1.8L cylinder head to engine block.


The 2002 service manual says replace stretched bolts. stage I: 30 ft-lb (40Nm) stage II: additional 1/4 turn, stage III: another 1/4 turn. Start in center, work your way out diagonally back and forth (crossways) ending on the ends of the block. Do this sequence on each stage.

Why would my battery light be on and the alternator workshop message appear.


Hello there,
When your battery light turns on, it simply means the battery is working without it being charged. The alternator is not working and need to be replaced, as it is not charging the battery, that is why the battery light is on as well as the alternator workshop light.
Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

Hello
Sounds like you have a low battery supply and the car would act up if it does not have enough electrical supply.
Check the battery and alternator for proper values.
Hope that helps

03 jetta shut off while driving.


Check the load reduction relay. I had this happen twice and repaired twice on my TDI mk IV. It throws no codes and almost has to be witnessed by a mechanic to be believed.
