Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

2 Answers

All my windows stop working at the same time as my trunk latch and my car will not respond to my remote.

I'm trying to find out if their all related or are they all separate. I checked the fuses in the cab and on the battery. As well as the relays under the hood. I'm thinking the main switch might not be getting power or no ground. Need some ideas so i can start checking things. Would appreciate the help.

Had same issue after having a new GPS put in. Turns out they shorted a fuse to a computer that controls all of the mentioned items. Fuse was a simple replace job and all was well.

This car has a button to open the trunk inside the glove compartment. That button is not working, i just hear a clicking sound. What should i do?


Have helper push button as you try to lift trunk open. I may just be weatherstrip is sticking. Use silicone spray lube on rubber to stop this. If latch has failed may be harder. Does the trunk have a key hole? Often when electric latch has failed you can turn key, then push button or other release mechanism and then turn key further for manual release (some cars--not all).

The liftgate goes up and down on its own


The latch is stuck. find where the latch is (the middle of the trunk liner usually. And spray some WD40 on it. Then work it back and forth (open and closed). If you have a remote that opens the trunk, push the button a couple of times while the trunk is open to try to knock it loose.

Trunk will not close


check that latch is releasing when using remote. remote uses a cable to pull latch and cable may need to be lubed causing the latch to stick open. Let me guess if you slam a couple times it will latch, lube the actuator cable and latch well. hope this helps

Were can I get my trunk fixed, it won't latch? 96


Any repair shop (body shop or auto repair shop) should be able to handle trunk repair. You may want to look through your local yellow pages. Have you tried spraying a lubricant into the latch assembly, sometimes it help to lube it and use a screw driver to flip latch/lock to locked position and then release with key or trunk release button several times. Rust is prone to jam locks and latches. Most local auto parts stores carry these latches in stock, and it is relatively easy to change out. Let me know if you need further help.

New batteries but remote won't click the door(s) or trunk. Ron


try programming the remote again, here is how u do that. if this doesn't fix the problem the remote may be defective, if you need a new one try ebay, they are very cheap to buy there.

.

Note: Existing keyless remotes will be erased with this procedure.
Existing working remotes will have to reprogrammed also.
1. Locate the programming connector wire located in the RH trunk area.
You may have to pull back right side trunk trim on trunk wall to locate
the single black/white wire.

2. The programming connector wire should have one termial in the plastic
connector on end of black/white wire. Ground the terminal in the connector
to a nearby bolt or trunk latch.
Leave connector wire connected to ground through out procedure.
3. System will now lock and unlock doors automatically to indicate
programming mode has been activated.
4. Press any button on keyless remote. System will respond by locking
and unlocking doors one time to indicate successful programming.
5. Repeat step 4 for to program any additonal keyless remotes including
and existing keyless remotes. Do not remove ground wire between
programming of keyless remotes.
6. Disconnect programming connector wire from ground to exit programming
mode.
7. Test keyless remote(s).

Trunk / rear lid won't open


You can try this I think the latch is just slightly missaligned.Did you put something in the trunk and push down on the trunk?Try to push down hard on the trunk where the latch is a few times while pressing the remote.If this works and it opens look for marks on the latch indicating rubing,file down,spray with WD 40.Good Luck.

A mechanic told me there really isn't a "tune up" per say for a Jetta TDI. Most importantly, the timing belt (w/water pump) replacement is the biggest concern. Change all the belts, check the glow plugs. If you drive on the highway a lot, the mass air flow sensor and its related hoses should be ok (carbon build up).

2005 Volkswagon Jetta Trunck Problems


I had the trunk problem, it would open if you use the key, but took a few tries to get it shut. Also the gas cover would not close. Both were covered by warranty because I was just under 50,000 miles.
