It would most likely be a battery. Take it to Auto Zone or a similar type parts store and have them charge/test it for you. Good luck. Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thanks.

Hi Trinity, If the vehicle starts with a jump, the security equipment is working correctly. Have the battery and charging system checked. Regards John

2012 VW Jetta TDI battery won't hold charge and car only clicks and won't start


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

I was wondering if you could give me some things to check on my van won't start and we tried jumping it. The lights all come on with full charge . So I was wanting to know if there is a reset button...


if u unplug your battery for acouple hours it will reset youre ecu/cpu. (everything) does it turn over? or absolutly nothing? if nothing sometimes ur battery loses so many electrolytes it can't retain a charge therefore jumping won't help. new battery first step! local junkyards probably have a good battery for $20. Let me know if this helps.

Hi! I have a 2000 VW bug. My boyfriend drove it and left the lights on, killing the battery. It happens... We tried to give it a jump start today, but every time we hook it up the alarm goes off. It goes...


Just leave the car battery charge up and then unhook the battery cabbles.........It should get enough charge in about 15 min to start without assiestance from jump start,...........Hope this helps.

When I try to start my 73 VW Bug is does not turn over just click


How long did it sit? To long can cause rusting and corrosion on the Negetive and positive connections on your car also check your battery for a charge. Whats happened is one of two things, Not enough power to starter or bad ground in system. Clean all of the grounding points and put a good battery in it

2001 vw beetle after charging the battery over night it will not


Try jumpstarting from another car. You probably did not get the battery fully charged before you tried it. Also, check to see if the cables are connected tightly and if they are corroded, clean them before doing anything else. When you jump start, make sure the cables go on the correct terminals at both ends. Make the last connection to the ground on the bug (- wire)

CANT GET VW BEETLE STARTED


hi if its not been started for five years and it is trying to start but just won,t keep running get someone to tow you and jump start it because i suspect the compressions will be low due to a build up of damp carbon valves sticking all in all the seats on the head and valve will not be seating so if you persisist with the jump start it forces the valves onto the seats and will clear the debrie if it still won,t go check your compressions yates210456
