Question about Volkswagen Polo

1 Answer

I have a VW PoLo classic from 200, when I turn on the ignition key,a continuous buzzing sound starts from the dash board , and nothing happens? and sometimes the whole lights in the dashboard goes off, when I try to crank the engine? I have also checked the voltage level in the battery with an old analogue voltage meeter, and it shows around 10 volt?the accuracy of my voltage meeter is not the best. I have also checked the contacts (+ and _) in the battery and have tighten them and sprayed them with, WD-40, still no ignition?

You can jump across the celonoid on the starter. If the engine turns over then your problem is either the celonoid or the starter switch.

SOURCE: 1992 VW Polo 1.3L Coupe: warning light mystery

Polo Coupe 1043,1992, Will not start, can be bumped started, sometimes!!, theres a strange clicking noise from under the air box, when the ignition is on and sometimes the oil pressure light comes on when the car gets upto temperature, then I lose all power and then the engine cuts out. I've recently changed the dizzy cap, rotor arm and battery, all the leads are new ish along with the spark plugs. The previous owner has changed the head and done all that, leaving much of the engine loom unlagged and bare. Could this cause a problem on some of the electrical systems?

SOURCE: Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

2000 1.8t vw passat wont start


There are many possible issues that can cause the problem you are experiencing. A bad starter, a bad ignition switch, relay, wiring circuit for ignition / cranking.

If you are mechanically inclined, I recommend you begin to test all components to narrow your possible problem.

Polo classic wont start


Try turning the key on and off several times. Do not turn the engine over, just on and off. You will need someone to stand with their ear close to the "open" gas filler tube. What they should hear is a quiet buzzing sound that cycles about one second long then stops. This should happen at at least two of the key turns. If nothing is heard you may need a fuel system fuse or a new fuel pump.

Let's see if there is really a diagnostic expert out there for this... 1996 Plymouth Voyager 3.3L engine with 165,000 miles. I'm having intermittent starting problems. I can drive for weeks and no...


The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!
