    thanks for the help! Checked everything out, and had battery tested. it checked out good! I also checked all the fuses and they were all good. I'm not sure why nothing in the instrument cluster is not working,and it starts and then goes dead.

Yes it will. check the connection on battery. then take it to get it tested and also have them test your alternater while your there, that could be another reason. these test can be done for free at an autozone or simular place

Change plugs now not getting any spark my daughter n law was in the car will I was changing the plugs turn the key to put window up now I can't get it to turn on


Do you get any lights on the dashboard turning on when you turn the key to run/start positions? Do you get any noise from the starter/solenoid when you turn the key to start? Do the headlights come on when you turn the light switch on (Could you have a dead battery? Check it.) Unlikely spark plugs and power window have any connection. More likely something else happened in between those two events. Try removing negative battery cable, keep off for 10 minutes, then reattach and try starting the car. If you have a diagnostic code reader, attach to the diagnosis port under the dash and turn the ignition key to run position. Read codes and see what the computer detects as the problem.

What could be the cause for my vehicle NOT to even turn over, but all dash lights & security seem to work?


the dash draws but 100x less thatn the head lights.
so even a near dead battery make weak lamps work
starter needs 100amps
the had lamps 10amps
the days 0.1amps 100x less.

for get the wheels, engines dead ,wheels are last. never first.

why not jumper cable start the car just like all AAA members do.
see? do it.
and the results will solve this fastests.

if car cranks and starts and runs. then the battery was low
if low charge it , if it wont take a charge replace it.
if it does hold a charge and goes dead driving the charges system is failing, if it fails, clean battery terminals first. and at ever 30k miles.
there are many systems on the car,
each must work in there turn.

Front windows not working, dimming dash lights


Engine start and run perfect????
head lights all good and bright. with heater fan on?????
front side? windows only? electric window motors all dead or weak?
checked all fuses yet?? THAT BE FIRST!
you have a dead or weak battery.
batter cable lugs all corroded and green?
fuse box damage at engine bay box? check carefully.
for sure its lost DC 12v power, so
its only a matter of measuring it from dash to battery, and finding it.
12.6v at battery rested.
12.6v at all wire on the main engine bay fuse box. or a fuse is blown
or wires to it damaged.
then 12.6v at the cigarette light , key on.
if not find the reason easy with any volt meter.
if battery is good, then you have corrosive resistance in the wire feeds
somewhere. most cars, i can see it before , measure it. just by careful inspections. if not , out comes my $10 walfart meter.
Mines rearlly a Fluke meter, but thats not important.

THE ALTERNATOR PERHAPS IS NOT CHARGING. THE OUTPUT FOR THE ALTERNATOR SHOULD BE 13-15 VOLTS RUNNING.

Battery goes dead while car is sitting


It wouldn't be the starter. It will not draw current when not engaged. Could be a light left on, a trunk light, glove box light, under hood light-an unintended drain, somewhere. Sometimes a penny or something gets stuck in cigar lighter and keeps that circuit on.
You should check if alternator is fully charging up the battery after it has run, and then turned off. But if you don't have a voltmeter handy, try this: When you shut if off to sit overnight, take the negative battery terminal off the battery. When you get ready to start it, hook up the battery and see if battery is no longer weak. If battery is now good, you do have an unintended drain. If battery is weak again, check charging system, battery cables and connections, alternator connections-a loose connection will prevent battery from charging.
If you have a drain, turn everything off and remove key. Pull the bulb out for the underhood light. Take negative off battery again, and hook up a testlight between the negative battery cable terminal and the negative battery post. If something is pulling current, the testlight should be bright. Now at fuse panel under dash, pull fuses one at a time and watch the testlight. If you pull a fuse and the testlight goes off, that circuit has the unintended drain. Check everything on that circuit.
Hope you find the problem. Good luck.

Had starting problems and cleaned terminal wires, car started. Yesterday same problem, adjusting wires did not work. Had battery jumped, car started. I warmed up car for 5 minuted before driving. Car...


I would say that you need to replace the alternator. The car was running on the batteries power. When you drove the car, it ran the battery completely dead.

Turbo lags, or wont engage smoothly.


the golf is renowned for a 1/2 sec lag in the turbo (except for the diesel which is quicker and more powerful all round,2 secs faster from 30 to 60.)you could chip the car (volks tuning) and make it much better...if you had a clutch problem,the engine will spin,wheels would be stationary.....

Car goes completely dead when trying to start


That is what happens when you have a completely dead battery. Battery could be shot. Or canions. be caused by a bad connection at the terminal due to corrosion or a loosee bolt. It often times means that you have a bad alternator. The alternator is what charges the battery as the engine runs. Please give me a good rating, it means a lot to me. Please let me know if you have any more quest

The alternator has failed and is not charging the battery. Vehicle has run on battery only until voltage was too low to keep engine running.
