Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

2000 Jetta Intermittent starting

My daughter has a 2000 Jetta that has a intermittent starting problem. The car will work fine for weeks then will not start, turn the key and nothing. Some times you can leave the car sit and come back later and it starts. I have also had some luck or just timing when I tap/beat the fuse box over the battery, not sure if it has anything to do with the problem. I was thinking maybe it could be a short in the starter solenoid? Thanks in advance for any help.

Exactly the same problem (left to cool started.? Once worm or hot engine just turning over ?)

Cutting it sort if found when I replaced a intermittent faulty fuel relay and run till engine hot (untill cooling fan cut in) Then turned off engine .. on turning key to see if this had cured my problem?
The engine started frist turn of key after repeating this a number of times .. this car was now starting fine (whether hot or cold)
Problem fixed..
Hopefully this will be of some help to yourselves

My 2000 Honda Odyssey EX has intermittent start problems. At least once a week it will not start without being jumped with a portable jumping system; sometimes turning the key to ignition for about 30...


Probably when the dealer is testing it is fine because the problem is intermittent. There may be a dead spot in the starter so when it hits that spot it acts up but other times its not on that spot its fine. Replace your starter and you will probably get rid of the problem.

2000 volvo s70 difficult to start, more so as fuel level drops. Cranks fine. Recently changed MAF sensor, B+ cable, plugs, fuel filter - no improvement.


Sounds like the fuel pump, as the levels of the fuel tank drop, there's less natural pressure on the fuel, which would definitely make it harder to start with a weak fuel stream from a bad pump.

Wipers work fine until it rains then intermitient setting stops


This appears to be wear and tear of the Interval Timer Relay, for the Intermittent wipe cycle.

Loss of power, glow plug light flashes, cruise control intermittent.


Check for intake blockage (coking). May also be a bad turbo-charger actuator pod or something as easy as a Mass Airflow Meter.
