Due to the age of the car, most likely the circuit that controls the starter solenoid has greater resistance than the current flowing through the circuit. The fix would be to replace the electric part of the ignition switch. There should be two wires going to your starter. One is from the positive post of the battery (+). It is the larger of the two wires. The smaller wire is the wire that controls the solenoid and if you read the voltage to that wire when you put your key in the start position, you will find that the solenoid wire will read less than 12 volts DC some of the time when you put the key in the start position. Replacing the ignition switch will fix this problem

Won t start

run the fault codes and look for faulty cam/ crank position sensor as this is indicated by the backfire/hard start and lower idle RPM. Check that battery terminals are clean and tight..

2002 passat v6 fsi engine. 90000miles..recently i changed air filter, cabin air filter, fuel filter, sythelic engine ran good. then one day i put gumont fuel line cleaner with full premium gasoline...

This vehicle is due for a Fuel pump.

Mixing and using to many of these Gas treatment is not a good thing, i prefer putting in 1/2 of the bottle during a fill up and only after 3k or every 6 months.

Now what to do:

You need to have this one serviced.

*** If you plan to just keep driving try refilling it at a 1/2 tank to see if this will dilute all the additives you have in the tank and clear things up.

Hope this tip helps.

Battery died because i left the car lights on in the morning when i parked the car and went in to my work office. is the battery fully dead? what needs to be done? will jumper cables solve the problem?

Hello. The battery will recharge. Just use jumper cables, and a friend's car to give your car a jump. Then drive it around for at least thirty minutes before shutting it off again. No permanent damage done!
