Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I unfortunately left my key in the ignition of the car for two days. I went to start the car this morning and it wouldn't turn over. The only dash board light to come on was the sir bag light. I took the key out of the ignition and heard a ticking noise that went away when I inserted the key back into the ignition. Also, the electronic door locks are not functioning. The ticking noise does not occur when the door to the car is closed. Have a really messed things up?
Nahh, its not that bad!
Its either your battery who is empty and need to be charged again or its the electronic box who need to be restarted.
Sometimes if the battery gets empty it can give the electronic box wrong signal, therefore it needs a restart, it can only be done at the ww service center. But try first to charge your battery, i think that will get your car to start again. The ticking noise and the non functioning door is because your empty battery.
You can either charge the battery (the best way to do it) or try to ger someone to tow your car to start and then drive for 45-50 minutes, thar will also charge your battery.
Good luck to you
