My 2003 volkswagen Jetta 1.8T won't start

My 2003 VW jetta won't start again. it did start at first but there was a loss of power so i turned it off then it would start again. the EPC light, battery light and MIL light comes on. i took it to tire-rama a week ago saturday to get a chirping in the engine diagnosed, but they said to take it to the dealer. they said it may have been the timing of a belt that was off causing the chirping. i didn't take it into a dealer. i have put over 10,000 miles on it in the past 3months bc i drive home from college every weekend. the manufacturer warranty on it was expired when i bought the car with 65k on it. i don't know what to do. i am home from college and the nearest VW dealer is in bozeman, mt 228 miles away and where i go to school. i live in a small town and no shops for 50 miles.

I have a 2003vw jetta the epc light is on and the will not come out of park nor the stop lights come on,I have already changed the brake switch and still won't work..


EPC light should have nothing to do with the shift interlock,(EPC is traction control) should be a small cap or plug on the console, near the shifter that has the interlock disengage button,usually done with a key,check shift interlock in the owners manual.

2004 Jetta 1.8t won't start after accident.


Sorry no inertia switch. When VW crashes, airbags go and safety belts strain gauges go. It comes as a Kit from VW. After replacement, crash error need to be erase from memory with diagnostic tester. See how to it at http://volkswagen-polo-highline.blogspot.com

yes- check your oil level - sounds like they didn't fill completely or something is loose and leaking oil out

I have an 2003 VW Jetta and I was hearing this ticking sound coming from underneath the hood of the car. Now my car won't start. A few days ago I checked my oil and its was very low. So, I put oil in...


The ticking sound is a valve ticking probably sticking if your car doesnt start now its probably cause the valve dropped and fell in the cyc and now froze the motor i would recommend not trying to start it again or it could harm your car more ....hope i could help Shane

On my 2004 Jetta 1,8T the brakes are starting to get hard. Taking s little more pressure on the brake pedal to stop the car. What could be causing this??? Thanks


The most likely cause is loss of power assistance to the braking system which means you will need to apply increased brake pressure to compensate for the loss of assistance.

The problem will be with the brake servo assist. It is possible there is a leak in the brake servo assist system, which reduces the vacuum, so you are not getting sufficient mechanical assistance when applying the brakes.

It is unwise to be driving the car with this condition. If you lose all power assistance to the brakes, which could easily occur with this fault, the pedal will become very hard, you will need to apply very high pedal pressure and the vehicle will be very difficult to stop. You need to take the car to a VW dealer for service or to a competent brake specialist in your area to inspect the system and rectify the fault.

VW did a recall on some earlier year models for a leaking brake servo and I understand the problem was a faulty vacuum hose which would fail and leak. I am not aware of any recall for this item on later models like your 2004 vehicle.

All the best.
