It sounds like you either have a bad battery or a loose connection at the battery

Do i need to relearn the tps on a 1999 vw jetta

Unhook battery, press brakes to de-power everything. Leave unhooked for half hour or more.

Re-connect the battery. Turn key to on position. Do not start the car... just to on. Don't touch the gas pedal at all. Leave for ~10-20min.

Turn key straight to start and start the car. Do not touch the gas pedal. Let idle for ~10min without touching anything.

Turn off car. Restart, drive. It might take a few heat cycles and a bit of driving before the ECU 'learns' everything over again.

I had an aftermarket stereo installed in 2007 Ford Explorer and now several electrical components are not working correctly such as power windows, dash lights, speedometer, and warning lights stop and...

if it was a shop that installed it, they unhooked the battery for sure, the next time you start it, turn the key to the on position, and wait for the lights in the instrument cluster to go off, about 45 seconds or so, then start it

Even though I bought the vehicle new, there was an aftermarket security system installed. The system had a bad diode, so i removed the system and reconnected the factory wires.
