Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks
Car got pretty soaked during Sandy. Three days later, battery is fully charged. First time, the car sounds like it's about to turn over. Second time, it gets weaker. Third time, no noise from the engine, and the alarm arms. Anyone know what this could be?
Dead battery armed the security system. Remove the battery cable let the system reset. Charge the battery. Use the key to unlock the door instead of the keyless entry. This resets the alarm once the battery is charged.

the battery may be fully charged but that doesn't mean that it doesn't have a weak cell, next time you go to start the engine remove all of the battery filler caps (if it has any) & get someone to look into the holes to see if they can see if any of the cells are bubbling,if any are the battery is faulty & needs to be replaced......hope this helps......cheers.
PS. don't get your eyes to close when looking into the holes of the battery,it might be safer to use a mirror.

turn the igntion on, don't start, let it set for ten minutes Turn it off for 5 seconds then try to start it. If it lost memory for some reason and doesn't start . then do this three times , after the third time start it. that is the relearn procedure. Have a charger on it for the 30 minute relearn. Relearn is on for ten m off five s on ten off five on ten off five then start

Usually----- if you get absolutely nothing- you have a bad connection where the ground is connected to the frame or where the main (+) side is connected to the starter or the main fuse block.
