Sounds like your immobilizer is activating. Try another key or you need to take it to a vw dealer for diag and adaptation.

My 2006 vw jetta tdi lost power and died wont restart am told need code to restart but dont have right code


You will have to have the fault codes read by a code reading machine . That will tell you why the engine stopped. I am suggesting that you check to see if the cam shaft is turning when you try to start it as the timing belt may be broken. Repair/replace items listed by the codes -reset the CPU with the code reader

I have a 2006 vw jetta 2.0t and the fans stay on even after the ignition is off and key is out, will run until the battery is dead. I have replaced the coolant sensor and the computer sensor on the...


The fans are run by rad temperature, not engine temp on a VW.Somewhere on the rad you should see a wire harness plugged into it.That is a thermo-switch which turns the fans on and off based on coolant temp in the rad. My car is a lot older than yours but this switch is virtually hidden on the bottom driver's side of the rad. It has 3 wires going into it.There could also be another sensor attached to the engine block or head to monitor engine compartment temps after engine shut off. This will turn the fans on or off as well based on air temp in the engine compartment.

2006 VW Jetta code U0100


This problem is with ecu / ecm= engine control computer. These are a common and horrible problem on vw's, particularly on tdi's. The signs in a tdi are when car dash lights come on, but no glow plug light,trans gear lights flash, but car still tries to crank. And hopefully ecu has enough power to out out code u0100= no communication with ecu. Unfortunately the ecu will need to be replacd. The ecu is located under the hood, near and under the wipers. Used ecu with same codes run $50-200. New $1000. If get used one make sure has a return policy. codes must match production quarterly year.
