Re: my car do not start
Hope this gives an idea where to look.
For an engine to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine, compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run. Follow the repair guide below:

- Switch on the head lamps for 5 minutes.
- Keeping the head lamps ON, start the engine. If the lights die,
- Check the battery terminals.
- Check battery state of charge.
- Charging system. If the lights still glow sharply,
- Check fuses and relays in under the hood fuse and relay box junction.
- Battery to starter motor cable.
- Battery to engine ground and chassis ground cable.
- Solenoid on starter motor.
- Starter motor.
check if the wire on the starter is fallen off or burnt.It might be touching on part of the chassis or engine and shorting when you try start the car.Is the engine turning over? Put the car in 3rd gear and try pushing it to check if the engine is not seized.If the engine is seized the starter wire will heat up as the starter will not be able to turn the engine.
This is a mileage interval light that trips every 3,000 to 5,000 miles that indicates an oil change is necessary. You do not need a special tool to change your oil, nor do you need to bring the car in to the dealer. 1. Sit in the driver's seat of the Passat and close all the doors. 2. Position the trip/odometer button to display the odometer mileage reading, then hold it down with the forefinger on your left hand. 3. Turn the ignition key to the "key-on/engine-off" position to turn on all the power options for the Passat without actually starting the engine. At this point, a service indicator light will display (in the form of a wrench). 4. Press the minute adjustment button on the clock (or turn the knob clockwise on European manufactured Passats) and release the trip/odometer button. Good luck and thank you using Fixya
simplest answer first,and this does not apply to a hot engine,The engine heaters work from a time switch on the door(would you believe)and the routine is, open door,climb in,put on belt,put key in ignition and turn on when orange light goes out.this allows the cold start heaters time to work(about 20 secs).sounds a pain but the number of times this has been all it is,when you put key in ignition, the fuel pump charges the system.hence the squirt noise,also the car has to reccognise the key(immobiliser system)also try using wynns/redexe to clean injectors...
first go to the basics charge the battery fully make sure leads are clean and tight with ignition off put car in gear handbrake off and rock car in gear to turn engine over (make sure you are not on a hill) so as to move starter.
check back of starter wire connection both large power wire and small spade terminal
check wiring on back of alternator plug and main wiring for alternator if all this is ok and it wont start if you have ignition lights but still doing the same then if it is manaual tow the car and try and start it if it is auto you can only replace bit by bit but try battery first from donor car as this is the easiest good luck
