Question about 1995 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

95 Jetta, not starting?

I just bought a 95 jetta, 5 spd with the 2.0 engine, it was working great until i started hooking up the radio...i cut off all the harnesses and hardwired the power adapter side, for the speakers i just used the adapter. Now the radio is getting power but wont turn on and the car wont start at all...itll crank so its not the starter and i shot starter fluid down the intake and it burned that off in a brilliant white smoke cloud out the tail but it wont kick over and start....ive listened to the tank while starting the car and i can hear the fuel pump operating so ive narrowed it down to somewhere after the fuel pump and before the engine......any suggestions.,...also the car had several blown fuses that i replaced and for some reason (dont know if its normal, this is my first VW) has multiple wires of the same kind....two power wires, two battery wires

Does the car have an alarm system? if so what kind is it. some alarms prevent the car from starting if it sences a problem. it is possible that you hooked up the stereo and it is causing a malfunction in the starting.

I hooked jumper cables up backwerds on my 95 vw jetta and killed all my electronics. is ther a safty fuse fore that or did i fry my computer brain?


Hi. I have found that the procedure fries the Gateway and the radio. The gateway will stop everything working. There is a 200 amp fuse on the front of the fuse box in the engine compartment. See if this has blown and replace this first though. It may have saved you.

95 Jetta won't start weird buzzing sound near fuses


Jettas were notorious for electrical issues. I fought with one for 2 years.
The starter relay is on top of the starter in the center rear of the engine compartment near the firewall. Its mounted at the top of the bell housing, underneath the intake and next to the exhaust manifold and hard to get at from both the top and bottom. Personally, I'd take it to a good respectable foreign mechanic. Not worth fighting with

Dead battery on a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta. How do I jump the battery?


under the hood, you will see a positive battery connection, and there should be a bare metal area on the engine you can use for ground. Clip the BLACK clip of one side of the jumper to the negative terminal of exposed metal on the jetta, then hook the other black clip to the negative terminal on the battery of the other car. Start the other car. Now, hook the RED clip on the jetta side of the cables to the postitve terminal on the jetta, then go and hook the other red clip to the positive terminal on the running car. Let the running vehicle run for about 3-5 minutes, and then with the cables STILL connected, start the Jetta.

After this is done, remove the jumper cables, one clip at a time, while being careful to NOT let them (the clips) touch until they are disconnected from BOTH vehicles!

Hope this is the info you needed!
