Question about 2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 Sedan
2007 VW jetta 2.5ltr Having problems with jetta dying. First time issue happened, warning lights in car came on, generator malfunction light and power steering. Lost power steering then car died. After a jump which we let charge for about 10 minutes, then I was able to drive a 6 hour distance. However, on the way the generator malfunction light came back on. The car died a second time after about two hours after the light came on. I got another quick jump and went about 20 feet. Went back to the car the jump it and let it charge for about 10 minutes again. Drove about 4 miles then died. I have disconnected battery cables, jumped it multiple times, but lights are still on. After a jump the engine turns over, before jump there is a ticking noise and engine will not start, lights flicker. I believe we have replaced the battery about a year ago. Any suggestions?

Sure is, the regulator in the alternator went out. You can test this by starting the car and disconnecting the battery while the engine is running. If the car dies, you have a bad alternator.

Check your battery cables for tightness, especially your ground cable. Now you have a new battery, so you have eliminated that as the source of the problem. Turn on your headlights, do they go out or very dim when attempting to start the car? If so, you have a poor electrical connection somewhere - loose cable, bad cable, possibly bad ignition switch.
