I had a key made for my 2002 Jetta 1.8T, I tried the key and the veh. did not start,I attempted several times and my dash light came on. I than tried my reg key and my car still did not start. I had NO problems before trying the new key. I had to have my car towed and the dealer ship that made the key, they indicated to me that my instrument cluster now needs to be replaced. They indicated that it was not because of the key. I need to know if a misprogramed key could do this.

it can be difficult to check a waterpump to see if it is pumping.first thing i would check is the belt driving the pump.if it is missing ,that is the cause.if it is driven off the timing belt and the engine runs , then the belt is not the problem.on some cars, you can start the vehicle and look at the coolant reservoir and see some movement of coolant(more when revving the engine). on some reservoirs , there is a smaller hose at the highest point on the reservoir. if your veh has this , sometimes you can see a flow inside the reservoir , when the engine is running. it's uncommon for a waterpump to stop pumping. if this is the case with your veh , your waterpump may have a plastic impeller on it and these designs do fail(not often , but they do) . i would look into the cooling fan operation and the thermostat operation . hopefully your veh did not overheat for long periods of time because if it did , there may be major damage to the engine .
Same thing is happening right now on a 2002 Monte Carlo. When the key is simply turned to ON, all of the lights on the dash starts blinking rapidly. When I attempt to turn the car over, there is no CLICK or anything from the engine - nada. Ignition turns and the dash goes dark, as if it wants to TRY to start - but nothing happens. But, when I press the brake pedal (and the key is just sitting in the ON position), all of the blinking lights stops flashing and just stay lit. Therefore, I changed the brake switch, thinking it might make a huge difference. Didn't really help at all. When the key is turned, you can hear the fuel pump engage and everything seems to be ready to go. But, the car won't start (it will only start when it feels like it)...hit and miss, pretty much. Does anyone know the TRUE solution to this issue? Does the ignition need to be replaced in order to get this car to crank over
is your security light in dash flashing if so try to start let off key but do not cut off leave key on so all your dash lights are on let vehicle set for at least 15 mins. flashing security light should stop flashing once it stops flashing start vehicle sounds like it has tripped security
It has a programable key which will keep it from starting if there is a problem with the key or the security system. Make sure your key has not lost programming by the security light on the dash. A light will blink when you turn on the key if it has lost programming. start here
your passkey security system has been activated, try this reset procedure with the original key for the truck
PASSKEY LOCKOUTRESET GM CARS 1999 UP 1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
cover the distributor cap with plastic and the high voltage coil.
with a damp environment, high voltage usually jumps to the nearest ground and would not go to the spark plug.
you can test this at night when it is damped and raining, at night, let some body start the car for you and you watch the engine compartment without light so that you can trace where the spark is jumping out.
i recently had the problem with the immobilizer after mo 03 jetta battery had died after speaking with the dealer they said i would have to tow it to them. yeah a 160 miles after reading several blogs i put the battery charger back on put the key in the ignition and turned it to the on position and left it for @ 20 minutes when i returned the immobilizer light was out i then cycled the key off and back on the light came on then went out as it should then proceeded to crank the engine over and it fired without problems and seems to be fin now......curse greedy dealers
