Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Left Lights on, dead battery. Friend had a jump start unit. Jumped car, it started, no problem. Radio now doesn't work. I checked the fuses and they all look fine. Any ideas? I have the same problem on my 2000 Jetta GLS. Also the dash equipment doesn't work. Clock and trip reset every time I get in. Anti-theft LED on the radio doesn't come on either. Doesn't say safe. I will try the solution and let you know if it works
Did you check the fuse that is behind the radio ? There is a fuse which might of blown, but you will need to remove the radio from the dash and you need special tools for this.

Some German cars have anti-theft device inside to make it useless to steal...check at the dealership to see if jumping the battery will activate this(the car thinks its being stolen) .

IT COULD BE A NUMBER OF REASONS,1-the interior monitoring sensor could be faulty,2-one of the door locks could be faulty,3-the alarm horn or the alarm control unit.suggest having a dealer check for any fault codes,if none they can also check which component was the last thing to set the alarm off using their diagnostic machine...good luck
