Need to disconnect battery, then remove airbag, the steering wheel (mark before removal), then remove top and bottom sheering column covers, then the spiral spring. At this point you will have access to the housing where the ignition switch is mounted. there is a breakaway bolt that secures this to the steering wheel. Can use an air hammer and gently loosen. Then you disconnect the harnesses from behind. Continue by sliding the housing off and then you will have access to the screw that secures ignition switch in place.
Install is the reverse.

SOURCE: 1996 VW jetta will not start

You vehicle works off a standard ignition key which links to a electrical ignition switch. The wire from the switch goes to the starter solenoid. That wire has a fusable link which operates like a fuse. If to many amps surge through this wire it will melt down inside the insulation. The insulation will not melt away causing a headache to most novice mechcanics. Pull on the solenoid wire a few inches away from the solenoid and see if it stretches at least 1/8 of an inch or more. If it does it has an open stopping the continuity to the positive lug to the solenoid preventing it to work. Any auto parts store sells these fusable links. The counterperson will suggest the crimping supplies and tools needed to purchase for this repair

SOURCE: air conditioner clutch does not

P0645 - A/C Clutch Relay Control Circuit
Means that an open or shorted condition detected in the A/C clutch relay control circuit.

If you replaced and check some components... Does the a/c clutch relay click when you turn the a/c relay on? It sounds that you have some kind of a module communication issue. It could be caused if one of your control modules is faulty and pulls all the network down. You should have your vehicle scanned with a scan tool that has access to other electronic modules ( ABS, Air bag, BCM). A DRB III scan tool has these capabilities.

SOURCE: 94 vw jetta would not start

94 Jettas have a anti-theft kill switch. It can mimik the starter or alternator. Lock all the doors with them closed, then unlock the drivers side with the key. Wait about two min then try cranking it. Should start up instantly, if not reset the computer.

I have a 94 Honda accord 5 speed. I just replaced the ignition switch a few days ago. Now its not wanting to start. Its acts like it wants to but don't . its not happening every time but more often....


If you are able to get it to run, by popping the clutch for example, it is not likely a problem with the ignition switch. Now, if you try to start the car with the key and you get absolutely nothing, no clicks, no light dimming, you might have a problem with the switch. In any case, I would check the connections on the battery and starter are clean and solid.

94 Jetta Diesel Fuse For Heat/Cool Blower Motor Keeps Popping As Soon As Car Is Turned On Even If The Fan Switch Is In Off Position


Could be a bad switch or a ground fault. Unclip the wires(or terminal) from the switch and inspect the plug for a short. Replace the fuse and turn the ignition on with the switch unplugged. If the fuse still pops there is a ground fault somewhere else in the wiring.

How do i change the clutch cable on a vw jetta it a 97


97 VOLKSWAGEN CABRIOLET/ JETTA CLUTCH CABLE REPLACEMENT

Place a jack under the lever on the gearbox to lift up the arm enough to remove the retaining clip on the engine-end of the clutch cable. Remove the clips and pull the cable loose from the transmission. Then go into the dash and remove the instrument cluster/ gauges to gain access to the pedal end of the cable. You'll need to pop off the plastic clips left and right of the dash to remove the plastic insert in front of the gauge cluster, then two screws and two plugs on the back of the gauges takes care of that step. Push the clutch cable in, and look for the round end of the cable where it's stuck into the top of the pedal. Pop it out with a screwdriver and pull the cable out under the hood. When you insert the new cable, you may need to tap the rounded end in with a hammer and punch or screwdriver to get it to seat back in the pedal assembly.

97 Jetta will not start


Sounds like there's no spark. Change the ignition coil. This is a common solution for cars that won't start due to lack of spark. To check for spark, pull a spark plug wire and hold it near the manifold and have someone turn the key to crank. If you don't see an arc of spark coming from the wire, this would confirm your spark problem. Hope this answers your question.. Best of luck.

Want to put in a push button starter in 94 jetta ; has to post on back one ignition switch other is soleniod. what do i wire to the ignition post ? thanks


If you wire it directly to the battery, you should install an in-line fuse in the wire.

Battery connection means anytime the button is pushed switch on or not the starter will turn.

Wiring to ignition (meaning 12 volt source which is only hot when switch is on) means it will only turn starter when switch is on.

However you do it, make sure it's fused.
