Vw bora 2000 w reg wont start?? help please

My dad bought a 2000 bora 90 bhp tdi, it has done 200,000 but seemed pretty tidy and was cheap, it had a new clutch and recent second hand fuel pump, it cut out and my dad reveiled it needed a fuel pump again replaced that new timing belt timed it up and was fine for a week, and then i parked it up for 30 minits or so went to start it tried but didnt start smoke looked unburnt very white and a lot of it tried bumping it but no joy, i thought glowplugs but the engine was still hot so it would have definitelly bumped, had it running with damp start but same again once you cut it out would not start back up, my dads running out of ideas he reckons it cud be some sensor near the flywheel but i dont know any help to eliminate and try would be useful because i havent really got the money for a dealership bill thanks   vw bora 2004 wont start??

Possibly air in the fuel lines. Possibly Fuel Injection Pump Case Relief Valve has come apart (funny looking ,10mm bolt with 2 round sides on left side of Injection Pump). Great site for TDIs - www.tdiclub.com - forum thread on this very problem. Great people will help get you going.

    I had the same problem and i was to it was the starter motor but the car will start with a toe even without a starter motor and had my car plugged into a computer which didnt tell me the problem . so with a bit of work i discovered it was a relay 109 above your foot pedals you need to take the panel off below your steering wheel to see it it says 109 on it change it £12 and ive never had any bother since .Hope this works .

How do i take the front passenger seat out of my 2002 vw bora tdi i need to tidy some wires up underneath will i have to reset anything if i take the seat out i dont want to have to take it to vw i dont...


4 bolts located in the rails that the seat runs back and fourth in when adjusting seat position. They are usualy spline drive bolts. turn ignition off first, If your car has a side airbag, should not have any problems unplugging things.
If it were me, I would tidy up the wires with the seat in place.

I have a vw bora 1.9 tdi and the heater plug light has started flashing and the car says engine workshop


There are a number of different causes of this problem. Check all glow plugs. Check glow plug relay. If both are ok....This may seem unusual...Check the brake light switch situated at brake pedal. A faulty brake light switch will cause the glow plug light to flash
Good luck with it

hi their how are you ? are you local to east sussex ?i work out of their it hard to say why your airbag light i on most of the time it the wireing undre the front seats get move or comes unpluged but you wont be able to turn the light out without a computer if its loged a fault now as it thinks that there is something wrong it would have to be rest sorry. the abs light comeing on when you start the car means their is a fault with the abs motor or a wheel sensor but again with out pluging in to the car its hard to tell you what the problem might be the reverse light is most of the time ie a bulb switch in the gear box or a fuse . i hope that helps you let me know what happens thanks
