Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

97 VW Jetta won't start, no clicking

I parked my car and a few hours later, I turned the key and all the dashboard lights came on and the alarm was going off. The lights seem fine. There is no clicking when I try to turn the key. Help! I don't want to get overcharged at the repair shop. SDfan

My 2001 vw jetta, i think i hit the panic button as i was turning the key to start the car...the alarm went off and hitting the unlock button does not shut it off (the alarm) i cant get the key out of the...


I think unrelated problems, rock steering wheel and try to remove key, perhaps put vehicle in park the drive a few times wouldn't hurt. Then I would disconnect the battery for a few minutes so the security system will reset itself and see if that solves problem.

It would be worth checking/replacing the ignition module ( see if you have a spark when it WON'T start) . Coil assy are plentiful and the most likely given your description. Very prone to over heating and shutting down. Good luck

TURN SIGNAL STAYS ON IF NOT CANCELLED


IT IS SUPPOSED TO DO THAT, THEY CALL IT A EUROPEAN PARKING LIGHT, THE CAR GIVES YOU A WARNING ALARM AFTER YOU TURN THE KEY OFF, REQUESTING YOU TO CANCEL TURN SWITCH.

97 VW Jetta won't start, no clicking


It might be starter wiring problem. Look for wire coming to the top part of the starter. One might be not tight enough or went off.
Good Luck
