It wont turn on,

I have a 2003 Jetta GLS 1.8 Turbo, these past couple of days i've been having problems with it. At first it was hesitating to turn on when i turned it on but yesterday i just wouldn't turn on. I jump started it and it was fine throughout the day, but when i was going home at night i stopped by the grocery store and it wouldn't turn bact on. I jumpstarted it and took it home. this morning it didn't turn on.

The battery can read 12 or so in volts, but may not have the amps to run it, or the cca to start it, it also has to maintain a certian voltage to run the injectors and coils.

do a check on the battery, any parts store can do this.

sounds like something is shorting the system draning the battery, but it could be the battery itself

2003 jetta gls rumble in the front end


sounds like a gearbox bearing ,,,this sounds like a growling noise usually when accelerating although as the problem gets worse it can happen constantly ,,, wheel bearings can growl too but will give a constant noise regardless of acceleration ,,, you need to see to this quickly as the more you drive you will cause more damage and cost to you ,,,,bearings will fix it in the early stages but if more damage is done you could have to pay for new gears and shafts which is expensive

5 error cods on my 2002 Jetta GLS 1.8 Turbo Engine


P0420= Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 1
P0300=Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
P0301=Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected
P0172=System Too Rich Bank 1
P2181=Cooling System Performance
you need to write these down,have someone clear the codes in the car,then go for short ride and recheck which if any code reappears.it's like domino's affect,one sensor can start a chain affect with the others.

2003 Jetta GLS (not TDI) alternator replaced twice in 2 weeks. WTH?


If the problem was in the alternator, the battery would have been discharged and you would not have been able to restart the car (unless jumped, but not have run for more than a few minutes before shutting down again) So, my answer: No.

Do you really need the Rotors replaced? How many miles? Are they metal on metal when you brake? Can you have them turned at an auto parts suply house? Remove and replace as in solution #1 but explore yor options first.
