Question about Cars & Trucks
We have changed multiple things on the car from the battery to the battery cables and after 2 or 3 days the car wont turn on. We dont know what else to do please help
It sounds like you have a parasitic draw on your battery, without wiring diagrams, and a good understanding of electrical systems andsub systems, finding and fixing the parasitic draw is going to be impossible. You may be substantially better in the long run taking your vehicle to a shop, and having them diagnose the cause of your parasitic draw.

I will work with some assumptions here.Your radio has a hole in each corner of it.Use nails and insert into the holes.GENTLY pull radio out and there should be a sticker on the body of the radio with a 4 number code.Write it down and put the radio back into the dash.Hold the scan and mode button in at the same time and the word SAFE will go away.Now,your station preset buttons are the keyboard.Push the #1 preset repeatedly until the first number in your code is displayed.then on to 2 for the 2nd and so on.After you put in your 4 number code,hold in scan and mode again and in about 2 seconds,tunes!!!!!You might get lucky and call your local vw dealer with the VIN of your car.They might have your code on file.Will save you a lot of trouble as the radio is not easy to remove.
best of luck!!!

make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?
if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.

i had a similar problem with my 2000ls i turned the key on left it in the on position for 15 mins then repeated it after the second time i turned the key on and off quickly 3times on the 3rd time i held it in the start position and it cranked over. note let your car run for a while to recharge your battery doing this really does drain it

The oil change wouldn't cause this problem. Just in-case, check the engine oil level.
There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.
