Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

TDI Engine starts for a second then shuts off

My 01 VW TDI starts for 2 seconds then shuts off. Started happening after the car sat for 2.5 weeks and then my wife and I moved the car twice in the driveway with no issues. Finally went to go to work with the car and I had to try and jump start because battery was weak. The engine would run for 2 seconds and then shut off. If I leave the key on, after all the lights on the dash cycle thru is the vehicle immobilization light flashing. Not sure if would be flashing normally if the key was left on with the engine not running. HELP!

How can you bypass an antitheft system on a 2002 tdi jetta?


If it is not a new key fob, it sounds to me like the immobilizer is activated. So, all the lights on the dash are working now? Is there a flashing key on the dash lights? One of the resets that works is put the key fob in, and turn ignition on without starting it, and leave it 15 minutes. And try again.

Need to know what engine you have.

2.0ltr Gas, TDi 1.9ltr Diesel or 1.8t. turbo gas.

Normally the Cabrio comes with a 1.8t.

If so , on this engine it is particularly difficult to diagnose a no start without a scanner hooked up the car. Most common catastrophic failure is the Timing Belt stripping it's teeth and loosing time, apart from the damaged it causes.

Other common problem with that engine flooded with fuel, a common problem if the engine was started and shut off without warming up..

Try throttle all the way open while you crank on it for about 20 seconds at a time. This will clear the gasoline from the cylinders and it may start.
