    A small wire on the red terminal keeps slipping off. Not the terminal cable but the extra small wire. Does it need to be attached

Under the hood, you will see a positive battery connection, and there should be a bare metal area on the engine you can use for ground. Clip the BLACK clip of one side of the jumper to the negative terminal of exposed metal on the jetta, then hook the other black clip to the negative terminal on the battery of the other car. Start the other car. Now, hook the RED clip on the jetta side of the cables to the postitve terminal on the jetta, then go and hook the other red clip to the positive terminal on the running car. Let the running vehicle run for about 3-5 minutes, and then with the cables STILL connected, start the Jetta.

After this is done, remove the jumper cables, one clip at a time, while being careful to NOT let them (the clips) touch until they are disconnected from BOTH vehicles!

Hope this is the info you needed!

The battery is almost bead, the car won't start, how do I jump start my touareg 2006 V6


place the positive lead from the jump battery to the positive terminal of the dead battery. take the negative lead from the jump battery and place it on the engine or other metal point--- NOT TO THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY-- If you do then you run a real risk of a power surge that will fry the ECM
However with a dead battery if the cells are failed then the power from the jump battery will probably feed the dead short in the dead battery and it may not work
Best have a load test done on the dead battery to see if it is faulty (cold weather) or just flat

Battery went dead now alarm is going off


Not supposed to jump VWs. Sounds like your immobilizer kicked in. You have to connect to a diagnostic tester and clear the errors before its gona start. Go see how to do it on http://volkswagen-polo-highline.blogspot.com

Battery seems to be dead jump staring didn't help 2005 jetta


Battery can be so dead that it won't take a jump. If it is the original 5 year old battery, you would be well advised to scrap the battery. If it is newer than 5 years old, charge battery on a battery charger for enough time to properly charge it. Then test it. Still dead? Scrap battery.

That's all I can offer you as you don't say why you think you have a dead battery.

I own a 2000 VW Jetta. Radio completely Dead


Have you checked the radio fuse? You may have blown the fuse when you jumped the car. The fuse box should be out under the hood encased in black plastic.
