I have a 2001 VW Bug it was making a noice while it was running. Parked the car and came back out later to start in again and now it wont start at all.


You did not mention what kind of noise so that's a tough one. Check the engine drive belt. If that's good and tight try to give a detailed description of the noise.

2001 VW bug wont start. Electrical?


sounds to me like you have a dodgy starter motor, gently tap the starter with a hammer, while someone turns the key, if it starts then your loenoid in the starter motor is on its way out....

01 tiburon, alarm reset? wont start


I had the same problem because I store my car in the garage in the winter. I found that replacing the positive/negative cables with new ones and also if you still have your spare key, try putting one key in the ignition and turn to acc before turning it over click your alarm button on your spare set of keys and the alarm should reset itself and the car should start. i hope this helps you, i just finished changing my spark plug wires because I had a code P302 which made my 2nd cylinder misfire, so if your tiburon is around 180,000 km then you should change it too, I recommend Bosch they are the best.
take care

2001 VW Beetle Will not start


Hi.
Check the heavy duty cables from the battery to the starter motor and solenoid and also the battery earthing (grounding?) - there terminals could be corroded / burned.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at all. Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D

My bug wont start


Depends on if the vehicle is a automatic transmission or a Stick shift. If it is an automatic could be the neutral safety switch, if it is a stick shift could be the safety switch at the clutch pedal. Hope this helps.
