The pedal in a volkswagon is electronic not mechanical. Sounds like a bad connection.

I have a Jetta TDI 1993 Model and I have a problem, while driving the I get no response from the accelerator pedal, the car seems to idle but there is no accelerating power. If turn the engine off and on...


Go back to that VW dealer and complain. I'm sure you payed plenty, and I know in my shop, if a customer's car is not repaired to their satisfaction, I want to know, and make it right. Sometimes parts can be bad right out of the box, and sometimes problems are misdiagnosed. Go back, but don't agree to pay for anything untill you get a satisfactory explanation. Good luck.

I have a 2002 VW Jetta and the temperature gauge keeps going up and down... Is this something to worry about ?


Replace the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor. ECT sensor is placed in the right back side of the cylinder head on 2002 VW Jetta 1.9 TDI. See picture below:

Question to Toyota Ed: How would you explain Toyotas with Sudden unintended acceleration in cars that have the Denso pedal in them? I have heard that Volkswagen Jettas are also using the Electronic...


Hello, Zman777.

According to the material provided by Toyota, the Denso pedal does not have the alleged acceleration issue.

Also, according to information that has been provided by Toyota, the alleged acceleration issues is being caused by two possibilities;

One is additional placement(s) of floor mats on top of the factory floor mat. The extra mats are not secured, and can move around the driver side footwell, and, in the worst case scenario, move on top of the accelerator pedal, and trap in into the 'applied' position. I myself have experienced this mat/entrapment issue during a road test.

The other possibility is that certain accelerator pedal mechanisms may mechanically stick in a partially depressed position or slowly return to the idle position. Over time, the internal mechanism in the accelerator pedal my become worn. As a result of this wear, combined with certain operating and enviromental conditions, friction in the mechanism may increase and intermittantly result in the accelerator pedal being hard to depress and/or slow to return or, in the worst case, stick in a partially open position, increasing the risk of a crash.

In short, according to what we have been provided, the issue is mechanical, not electrical. The modification that Toyota dealerships are performing rectify this issue, and, this modification has been approved by the NHTSA.

Nowhere has it been found that the vehicles with the alleged acceleration issue have 'accelerated' without warning, as in sitting still, and the car is suddenly going 100 mph. None.

What 'could' happen, if the pedal 'was' sticking, is, in my opinion, an 'Unexpected Non-Deceleration' condition.

If you were going 15 mph, and the alleged issue appeared, when you let off of the gas pedal, the car would continue at 15 mph, and NOT accelerate to 100 mph, as has been falsely mentioned in the media.

Regarding VW, sorry, I cannot comment on VW, or any of their systems, I am not a certified VW mechanic.

I hope that this info helps you out.

EPC means Electronic Pedal Control. Fly-by-wire for your gas pedal--instead of a mechanical cable that pulls an accelerator linkage on the engine, there's an electronic device on the gas pedal, an electronic device on the throttle body and a wire between them.
You should check the sistem with diagnostic tool.

Tdi has n't any pickup when accelerating 2003 jetta


Sounds like a clogged intake to me. TDI's like to be driven hard - if you don't wind out your gears on a regular basis the intake can get clogged - causing serious loss of power. You may also have a bad MAF (air flow sensor) but I'd put my money on a clogged intake.
If you drive a TDI you should definitely go to www.tdiclub.com

Accelerator Loss


From my experience in owning a VW it souns electrical. Most issues with VWs are electrical related. Most likely a realy of some type. Could also be fuel injection but that is electronic too.
