SOURCE: 1999 vw jetta cannot communicate with obd to pass

If it can't communicate with it then replace the fuse. It could be blown. If the fuse is good then try disconnecting the battery for about an hour to reset the default values in the computer. It may not recognize the new cat. The last resort is taking it to the dealer to re-flash the drive. Good luck

SOURCE: I have a 1999 VW Beetle 2:0L engine. Regularly

Hello! There is a device called the MAP sensor. It is located after the air filter, and before the intake. A 3" to 4" plastic tube with a wire connector coming out of it's side; Connected with a hose in and hose out that connects to the intake. This is the culprit 90% of the time. Auto part stores sell it for around $80-$90. Check both hose for cuts or holes which allow dirt to enter after the air filter. The MAP regulates fuel flow. Radio Shack has a product called "Deox It. The catalog # is 64-4338 and it is used to clean electrical devices. Cost is around $15. Try cleaning it first and see if your trouble clears.

1999 chevy venture transmission won't change from

I have seen where the power supply to the solenoids is failed. Check the correct wire to verify power at the transmission. The computer will indicate that it is telling the transmission which gear to be in, but the solenoids have no power and cannot actually turn on. This is limp-in mode. It is definitely a power supply issue to the trans solenoids.

This is a fuel pressure issue. chang out the fuel filter (near pass light, cylinder with 4 rubber lines running from the top), not the fuel pump (right next to the filter; follow two of the rubber lines from the fuel filter to the driver side...that's your pump, the shiny squarish looking thing, it'll have 4 hard lines running from the righthand side of it).
