Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

99 vw jetta wont keep running

My neighbors wife was driving around all day in her 99 vw jetta, she parked it in her garage and then later in the day she tried to start it and nothing happened, when i looked at the battery it was bulging so we replaced the battery and then when we tried to start it, it will crank over and then shut off. I checked the fuses in the door jam and near the battery. do you think it could of blew the computer or maybe tripped a code.

How many miles on the car a no start can be for many many reasons but we can always come to the drawing board for an answer so please let me know how many miles and what else you had to remove to take the battery out??

ASL on cannot get into gear, and brake light are out


To get the car out of park you have to put the shifter right in between neutral and drive and as soon as the car starts put it in drive. Keep your foot on the brake obviously. You can go to Reversve once you get the car started and in DRive.

You probably have some corrosion on your battery terminals. Make sure they are clean and connected good and tight.
