Check that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight. Have a load test done on the battery to check for a dead cell.

SOURCE: security system/battery

plz check the following and update me
1. Fuel (To be exact proper air/fuel ratio, normally it is about 14/1)
2. Spark (in appropriate moment)
3. Proper timing (the valves should open and close only in appropriate time)
4. Compression in the cylinders (Normal compression is 120 - 170 psi. The engine won't start if the compression is lower than 70 - 80 psi.)

SOURCE: 98 bmw 740i wont start

Battery is in trunk compartment. Must be positioned exactly and locked down. Not easy to do and keep in position unless using BMW battery. There is a slight size difference (BMW wants to sell their batteries - at inflated price.) Save yourself the headaches and get BMW battery. In the meantime, just move your battery position a little bit until trunk light comes on. Car will start if trunk light is on - unless the problem is really something else. Hope this helps. Let me know.

SOURCE: Car alarm stopped working.. Car wont start

the jetta has a faulty alarm system from the factory i have been working on one in my shop. the alarm moddule is inside the dash behind the light switch and has a 10 pin connector and a 6 pin connector. this can be bypassed if you disconnect both connectors and jump the two large wire on the 6 pin connectors, these wires operate your starter. the car will start and run but your alarm will no longer be active. the door locks and everthing else will still work. the only issue i am having is the factory radio isn't working because it is controlled by the alarm. but worse case scenario i can use an aftermarket radio if need be.

SOURCE: dead battery

It could be a defective ignition switch as well (it has a disabling circuit) thinking the vehicle is stolen. The dealer has the equipment to see if is throwing a code for that.

Cant get power from batt when turn the key


A possible problem, a bad electrical connection, I would remove and clean the battery earth connection to the chassis and the chassis to body. If you connect a volt meter to the battery earth terminal and an earth terminal on the body, then the engine and try to start, you should not get a reading, if you do then there is a bad connection. It is strange connecting the meter across two earths, but if there is a bad connection, power finds the easiest path, which is the meter and it will give a reading, max reading acceptable 0.5 volts

No power and batt is good


My first guess would be a dead cell inside the battery, or a blown fuseable link between the battery and the fuse box.
Someone would need to check the battery connections and fuse box with a meter.

This means you have a ground problem , either at the battery, or at fuse junction block, or at the block , follow ground cable from batt. to block and anyother ground points.(corrosion). possibly bad battery with a dead cell.

Engine does not start?


Make sure that the connections at the battery is clean and free of acid built up. Take the terminals of and clean them propperly

It could also be the ignition switch at the wiring end not making proper contact anymore, try and wiggle the ignition wiring if possible and see if there is any change in the status when the ignition is switch on
