Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

Is it electrical or the battery?

The engine sputters before it cranks...and is seeming to sputter more; the turn indicators work sporadically (bulbs have been checked and are fine) and the beep that sounds after the doors are locked sounds weaker.

Is it the battery or electrical?

How to fix whinning noise when car is accelerating, or turning? Is the whinning noise an electrical issue, fuel pump, power related, etc.?


the whining noise is your engines alternator bearings
they are worn out , the alternator is close to failure
it is barely producing any voltage
( the battery light in the dash only indicates that the alternator is no longer generating any amperage )

have a load test done on the battery to check for failing cell. Check the drive belt condition and tension. check alternator out put. Everything you have mentioned indicates a lack of battery power. Check terminal condition and tension of the clamp bolts.

2011 Caliber excessive cranking at starting


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Dash lights come sporadically and engine sputtering


sounds like battery connections, battery dying, alternator not charging, ignition switch, relays.

Battery light indicator went on initially, and power to vehicle eventually died out; with engine sputtering.


If your battery light indicator went on it indicates that the battery is not charging because of either a dying battery or alternator or both!
With the red battery indicator on, the battery will eventually drain out (especially if the alternator is faulty) to the point where it will not provide the required power to the car electrical system ... thus causing it to 'sputter' and eventually die out - a sure sign it that you cannot restart the motor due to a weak of flat battery!
Hope it helps you understand the possible problem!
