It's an ignition problem. If you keep trying to turn over it will start. It's an anti theft device they installed. The little car with the flashing key. Someone likely tampered with your ignition before for this to happen.

1998 VW Jetta GL . When I Put My Hand Break Down , Brake Light On Dashboard Doesnt Come Off Completly , In That Case HeadLights Wont Come On When HeadLight Swtich Is On .


the emergency brake needs adjusting. the cover around the e-brake should be removed, and behind the e-brake arm should be a cable and tighten the nut on the end of the cable until the slack is removed from the cable. turn nut, then turn key to accessory, then release e-brake , see if the brake light goes off, if not turn off ignition, tighten e-brake nut again, turn key back to accessory release e-brake, see if light goes off. do this until you see e-brake light on dash go out. headlights should come on.

How can the alarm on a 1996 VW Jetta be permanently disabled? No matter locked or unlocked the alarm system is armed. Of course when it is on, the car won't start and the alarm/horn is blaring and annoying...


Alarm box is behind the abs light panel and headlight switch, Its kind of hard to get to but there will be a 6 pin and a 10 pin, the other box is for the headlights, unplug the 10 pin harness and pit a jumper wire from the red wire to the red/black wire. Alarm is bypassed

Have you checked the charge on the battery? How bout your connections at the terminals. Vw are very sensitve to voltage drops. You might even have something thats draining your battery

Maybe your key remote batteries need to be changed. Also have it scanned for DTC's which I believe you may have quite a few stored in memory, problems you weren't aware of.

Electronic immobilizer


most likely cause is the gauge cluster, this will have to be tested and service by your local dealership because the dash cluster and keys have to be coded. I have seen the immobilizer loose it's coding for apearantly no reason. therefore have them recode cluster and see if problem goes away, if it doesn't the gauge cluster will have to be replaced.
