Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
My car has been acting funny for a while. here are the symptoms i've noted over the past 2 years:
-twice the car would just completely shut off while i'm driving, i had to pull over, put the car in park, and restart. it would start up just fine -i got into an accident and had it repaired, but every since then the overhead lights would randomly turn on for a second while i'm driving, it does this all the time. -twice it felt like the car would lose power, i'd be pressing on the gas but it would feel like i was breaking, it would only last maybe half a second. -i was driving home 2weeks ago and the radio restarted, the clock reset itself, etc etc but the car kept driving. the electronic immobilizer light came on and blinked the entire way home. when i got home, i restarted the car and the light was off. -today i hopped in and the car wouldnt start, it makes this constant clicking noise coming from behind the air vent on the left side of the dashboard. the radio doesnt work, the overhead lights are very dim, and the alarm won't come on. i dont think it's the battery because i just got a brand new one like 2 months ago.
any ideas? i dont know if all those symptoms are related, and i tried googling this. i like going into the shop knowing exactly what's wrong with my car because when the cooling fan took a ****, they effed it up and wouldn't listen to my suggestions even though i researched it.
Sounds like a short...be very careful.

My 2003 jetta seems to be doing the same thing, there's a new battery, the alternator is working...but the light are dim and flicker from time to time, the car won't always start, also when i'm pressing on the gas it seems like its dragging and will die.... wondering if you figured out what the problem was?
