    might have hooked battery on wrong way??? humph? well the battery being on wrong way is quite bad really especially if fitted with an immobiliser? if this is the case then the likeley hood is that yu have activated it and burnt out any hope of it going without seeing a specialist in auto electricals. did it not spark like mad whilst connecting it? red =+ black =- .

99 jetta wont start, lights and radio work, windows dont, it just wont turn over, its not the battery


FIRST IS THERE FUEL IN THE TANK, CHECK THE SECURITY AND CONDITION OF THE BATTERY TERMINALS / CHECK THE HT LEADS ARE SECURELY CONNECTED TO THE DISTRIBUTOR CAP / CHECK THAT THE HT LEAD TO THE IGNITION COIL IS SECURELY CONNECTED / CHECK THAT THE LT WIRING PLUG AT THE IGNITION COIL IS SECURELY CONNECTED / FIT NEW SPARK PLUGS / THEN SPRAY ALL ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS ABOVE WITH WD 40 .

check to make sure battery in good conditions.the battery voltage should be 12.5.if all is good.problem is in starter solenoid.if it wont replace with the new starter.also bad battery cables.replace battery cables if they havent been changed.a bad transmission range switch.

My jetta sputters sometimes when im driving


I recently had a similar problem. I got my car scanned and needed a new catalytic converter. If its already starting to spit and sputter, you probably have 3-6 months to get this done. Mine plugged up one day, and just flat out would not drive anymore. This cost of this repair was about (i recommend changing the spark plugs and wires also) $675....pretty costly. could get a lot more expensive the longer u let it go. Does your jetta run cold, in cold temp? (between 25-40 degrees) if so the thermostat probably took out the converter.

we'll assume fuel is good..leaving spark and air..and management of systems(computer /sensors)...so the speedo cable was disconnected? try taking it loose again , test drive and report back please
