Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
Hi, recently I have been having an issue with my 99 Passat sometimes failing to start, (I get all my dash lights but it won’t turn over, the battery has been tested) that being said I have also been having issues with my security system led flashing constantly since last summer. (I already checked fuses and replaced the relay but it still keeps clicking and flashing constantly) Could these two issues be linked, in other words does the Passats' security system cut ignition if it thinks its been broken into. Let me just add this all started with electrical problems, I had to disconnect the automatic lock for the truck because it kept constantly engaging the lock and running my battery dead. Any advice you can give me on these trying issues would be greatly appreciated.
Usually on the passat, if the immobiliser is on, there is a yellow key symbol flashing on the clocks as you try and start it. Do the doors unlock with the remote key? If no flashing light and the key fob working, i would be looking at possibly starter relay. This is either located under the fuse box or under a plastic cover near the windscreen under the bonnet.
