Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

2000 tdi wont start!!!

The car started for 30 seconds and then died. It appears to have blown the 40amp fuse above the battery, I replaced it. It still will not start, so I checked the plugs, looked good. Put the meter on the plugs and the soloniod on the injector pump, looks like no power... Does anyone no where the glow plug relay is? Also, is there a oil switch that could be causing me grief? If anyone has other suggestions I would be very greatful.

Glow plug relay is marked #180 on the housing.
in 0 to 11 degrees they have a starting prob were the glow plugs go on and off very quickly.need VAG.com to exstend glow plug timing.
to test glow plugs disconeect ect turn key on plugs should draw 15 amps each 60 amps all together.if you dont have amp meter use test light.

it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

i would say you have a mains problem?any car that blows a 40amp fuse has a big fault.you have a direct short in the alternator/starter/battery area.take a very close look, as this type of fault will show its face pretty quick, check all heavy wires to and from starter/battery,and if satisafied get the alternator checked as it could be the problem.adrian,,,

It's probably going to be a fuse that's blown. Check fuse #38 and see if it's blown. If it isn't try taking it out and leaving it out for 30-60 seconds. Hopefully that's whats wrong with it.

Try changing the fuel filter first we always change them when servicing the fuel pump anyway,its easy and cheap,if that doesnt solve the problem you will have to perform an amperage draw test on the fuel pump to insure your not replacing a good pump. Check the fuel pump relay and inertia switch and wiring also.Although possible its unlikley the fuel pump would blow a fuse consistantly without displaying any driveability problems.There may also be another component running off the fuel pump fuse have your mechanic pull a wiring diagram to find out. Good hunting keep me informed
