Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

03 passat vr6 awd dead short:Ok so originally I was driving and heard a pop noise and the car flashed alternator workshop and airbag fault . I had my buddy put a new one in about a month later . I jumped the car and let it run a few days before he replaced it. After he put it in we tried jumping It and it wouldn't crank over . Later that night I went to try and start it . First try it cranked over but I didn't have cables hooked up and battery was dead . It wouldn't crank after that and I took it to The shop months later . The mechanic called and said the ECM was fried . He said he could try putting one in but if theres a short it could go at any time . I gave him the okay and he put one it( so he says ) . He called a few days later and said as soon as he started the car it fried immediately . Is that even a possibility ? I don't really trust this guy since he's trying to sell me cars and buy mine for parts . He said he's gonna try to find The short when he gets a chance but it could take a while ? Any feedback is greatly appreciated

SOURCE: 2003 Honda Accord. Dies when I try to put it in drive

you are having a problem with your alternator. the battery has a main purpose to start the vehicle, keep computer memory, and give power to electrical components when the key is in the on position. the alternator charges the battery and gives power to electrical components when the vehicle is running. now when you hit the brakes there was an extra load added to the alternator and if the car died then the alternator is running very weak and needs to be relace.

SOURCE: i bought a new alternator for my 1990 oldsmobile

I have old car also and after i went to grocery store it's hard to start it. I thought that the alternator is not charging? but when I check the battery is ok! if your alternator is ok? maybe your fuel pump, like mine!

SOURCE: Just had plugs,wires and bottom gasket leak fixed.

That would make sense, because when he jumped your car if he left it hooked up for awhile. Then he charged your battery up, so it started the next day. Then you drove to his shop and back it ran the battery down. It's easy enough to test and change alternators you could take it to autozone or O'Reillys if there is one close they can test your alternator. If you have more questions about this or if you would like to try and change it yourself just reply to this post and I will walk you through it.

I went to start my car today. The car started fine, but then a light saying "airbag fault" came on. I went to put the car in reverse and back out of my driveway, and the gear shifter would not move. But it...


Hi,

The Airbag and Transmission circuits are independent of each other.

There is a possibility of a computer malfunction, but this can only be determined by taking the vehicle to your nearest VW Dealership, and have the workshop scan your computer for Fault codes.

This will identify the problem immediately...


Hope this helps....

Hook up a scanner and turn off the error reporting code.

Fault airbag on the indicator


If you do not fully understand the airbag system, you shouldn't mess with it. Airbags can be as dangerous and deadly, as easily as they can save a life. Your airbag light is telling you that you have no airbags at this time. It's worth the expense to get the system fixed by a professional, rather than chance a collision without operable airbags.
