    Our problems sound quite similar, mine is a 2003 Jetta GLS though. I had about 65K miles on it and the speedometer first fluctuated wildly then died, or appeared to be dead. It would randomly start working for a few days and often would die again while I was driving. I had the entire instrument panel replaced (to the tune of almost $700, $500 of which is for the part!). Sadly the problem continues. Prioir to replacing the speedo head, my mechanic tested a second sensor (a less expensive part), but it seemed to workig fine. HELP!! Does anybody know what is happening here?

SOURCE: 2006 vw jettA 2.5....trouble starting

I had to take my car back to the dealership twice. First, they replaced the ignition switch. 3 days later, my car wouldn't start again. So I took it back and they called VW - VW said to replace the steering column module. I asked my dealer why they didn't replace the steering colum module first - they said that even if they had replaced that first, the old ignition switch would have shorted out the steering column module. Whatever.
$600 later my car has been fine for about 3 weeks now. If it happens again I will keep you posted.
Good luck!

The problem is either of two things. Either the mechanical oil pump filter is clogged or you have a bad oil pressure switch.
There is a design flaw with the mechanical oil pump. It needs to be have the mesh filter on the oil pump cleaned and the return tube needs to be bored out. If the problem persist check the oil pressure switch. You have to remove the front suspension to get to both so do both at the same time. Anywhere from 250.00 to 600.00 for this job.
GOOD LUCK.

SOURCE: 2004 Jetta GLS. Main cooling fan remains on after car turned off.

"Already had replaced: both cooling fans, fan control module, coolant temp sensor, fan switch, 4 terminal connectors. No trouble codes reported in VW electronic diagnostic test. 2 different VW dealers and and my mechanic threw in the towel. Any suggestions greatly appreciated."

This is a common problem with the VW..and no one has an answer WHY. (including VW mechanics)

THIS IS A RECALL ISSUE and should be implemented

This is a result of either a bad solder job at the factory or just bad solder. You can remove your gage cluster and remove and resolder the joints at the back of the 2 indicators. there are several sites on the internet that have specific instructions.

97 VW Jetta GLS, manual transmission. The speedometer stopped working & the fuel gauge is jumping around.


Hi Ken You seem to have two faults with your vehicle. One will be a speed sensor and the other possibly a bad connection. Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and pin point the problems (which the scan will do) and then sort them out. Regards John

Great I'm glad to hear you got it fixed. I was Leaning towards that solution but you got it figured out. As far as key fobs killing batteries, I do not have a solution to that yet. I have the same problem and have had with all of my Jetta's. If I figure it out I will let you know. Good luck and I hope the best for you.

Hard cold start 1997 Jetta gas


can't say for sure but almost all engines that have come to me needing ether to cold start have poor compression. test the compression first.
you sould never need to use ether on a gas engine and very carefully on a diesel when very cold.

Speedometer quit working


There is no Speedometer cable on a 2002 Jetta. You have a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) I would have someone check the codes on it and see if the VSS is the problem.

Mt 1997 vw jetta gls won't go in any gears


Hello;
If your Jetta is a manual transmission, the clutch disc facing is probably gone. If it is an automatic, there are a number of things to check. Is transmission full of fluid? Does fluid smell burnt? Is there metal inside the oil pan? Hope this helps and rate me high.
Thanks;

2004 volkswagen jetta speedometer doesn't work


There is a plastic gear inside the transmission that cracks or breaks causing this exact issue.  The speedo sensor gets its reading off of the broken gear by way of a shaft with a small gear that the sensor screws onto and meets with the gear that is broken. The transmission has to be dissassembled.  A new plastic gear put in and reassembled.
