Question about 2003 Volkswagen Beetle TDI

1 Answer

Car won't start. No spark at all.

The car has not been driven for about a week. I put the key in the ignition and it is totally quiet. Is there a way to tell if it is the battery or a fuse?

Try jump starting it to see if it will start that way if it does then you know its either the battery or the alternator

Why won't my key turn the ignition for my 2000 Dodge Stratus. The steering wheel is not locked but neither key will turn in the ignition.


Probably aftermarket alarm. Should be a small switch close to it to turn it off. If it were mine, I would remove the system .

Charge it, or hook up jumper cables, wait a few minutes before you actually try to start it. Make the ground to the running engine the last connection you make.

Replaced the fuel pump. the car starts, but won't stay running


The anti-theft system will keep the car from being driven, so I would start there. You may need to reset the anti-theft or check the ignition key for problems.

Car won't start, Everything is perfectly fine, it has spark in all the spark plugs yet it will not start


Then you dont have fuel cycle the key or better yet have some one do it for you because you will need to listen for a fuel pump they are quiet so someone in the car you at the fuel tank have them cycle the key do you hear the pump going on. Also look at the air cleaner area there is a boot that goes into the intake is that boot torn? If you have a MAF then this matters,
