Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
It happens about once a month or so. It wont start. It will jump off and run fine. Example... yesterday the wife drove the car then it would not start, jumped it off it drove ok with the lights flashing on the dash as if it had some sort of lose connection somewhere. She turned the car off after driving it about 10 miles and then it would not start. Two hours later it started fine without a hitch. I have owned this car a little over a year and it has done this maybe half a dozen times. I have had the battery and altonater checked and they are fine. I have checked for loose connections to no avail........HELP any suggestions?
Have you checked where the power cables connect at the starter, check the condition of the cable, also the condition on the ground cable. If the connections are corroded or the cable has a number of broken strands of wire it can cause the cable to loose conductivity. If in doubt replace them both as they are relatively inexpensive.
Lastly Check the ground cable that connects the engine to the chassis.
