Occasionally, about every 6 to 8 times tried, the engine will turn but not start. If I turn the key off for about 3 seconds, it usually starts within a few turns. Do you know what can cause this?


A year, make, model, and engine size would help but I will through this at you.

Instead of just trying to start the car turn the key to the run position and wait 3 seconds. Turn the key off and immediately turn the key back to the run position and wait another 3 seconds. Turn the key off then try to start. Do this every time you try to start the car. If you symptom never occurs when you start the vehicle like this than I would suggest taking a closer look at the fuel system.

My remote car starter will turn the car over but it will not start the car.


How old is the remote system? Good ones(high dollar) only last about 7 years, In my experience with them. Factory last about 3 to 4 years longer. If you have an aftermarket, I recommend you replace it or take it out and repair the wires before your car won't start with the key. When I get a no start car with aftermarket alarms and starts. they come out, first thing. 98% of the time, the cars starts after this.

Why does it take 3-4 turns of the key to start my car? the first time I turn it the engine turns over normal. The 2nd time it tries to start. The 3rd time it starts but dies instantly. Then it will start...


Before you start the car for the 1st time of the day, pump the gas pedal 4-5 times to push the fuel towards the engine. I had a car which needed many pedal pumps, which was common for the car but mine had a iced up carburettor.

You car starts when it has been driven as the fuel is already at the engine. You could get a higher pressure fuel pump but pumping the gas pedal will work just fine.

Hope this helps, vote for me please :)

My security light in my car is on what does that mean?


There is a problem with the theft system. This is the system that pervents the car from starting if the ignition lock cylinder is damaged when someone trys to steal the car.
You can try and do a relearn, it may let the car start after this relearn. The most common cause for this concern is the ignition lock cylinder, it has a computer sensor inside that goes bad, you have to replace the cylinder and program it.
To reprogram/relearn, put on the parking brake(this will keep the headlights from comming on and draining the battery), try to start the car, leave the key in the "on" position. The security light should no be flashing. Wait for tem mins, the light should turn off. At this time, turn the key off for 2 seconds and try to restart. At this point, the car may start, if not let the key stay in the "on" position again for tem mins untill the light turns off. Again turn the key off and try to start the car. It may take 3 times for the system to relearn, if you try 3 times and still no start, you will have to replace the ignition lock cylinder.

2001 Jetta - won't start EPC light is on - tried manually disengaging by pressing brake and EPC Sensor simultaneously and releasing. Still no luck. Battery is working fine -


2001 jetta gls turns over but wont start. In the past month the temp light on the dash would come on for approx 10 seconds then would go away. This happened 2-3 times. Over the past two weeks when I would start the car it would turn on, then immediatly turn off, only to turn back on within 1 try. This happened once. Yesterday while taking my son to school the car died, again only to turn back on immediatly with one try. Today I went to start the car and it turned on for 3 seconds then turned back off but this time will not start again. I checked all the fuses (one by one) at the panel inside the car on the drivers side. All were fine. The car turns over fine but will not start. Extremly frustrated...

2006 vw jettA 2.5....trouble starting


I had to take my car back to the dealership twice. First, they replaced the ignition switch. 3 days later, my car wouldn't start again. So I took it back and they called VW - VW said to replace the steering column module. I asked my dealer why they didn't replace the steering colum module first - they said that even if they had replaced that first, the old ignition switch would have shorted out the steering column module. Whatever.
$600 later my car has been fine for about 3 weeks now. If it happens again I will keep you posted.
Good luck!

Oil light


Hi lady d tilli,

Take off the fuse cover on the drivers side of the dash. there should be a bunch of fuses. in the middle is a red button that says "reset." turn your key to the on position, but DO NOT START. press the reset button until the change oil light blinks, then turn the key back off it should be fine after that. for the 05's theres somthing you have to do with the gas pedal. i think you do the same, by turning the key on but not starting...and then tapping the gas pedal 3 times.

Hope this helps a bit,
Good luck,
Eitan.

Starting problem


Try turning your key on and off 3 times before you start the car, if the engine starts more quickly it means your fuel delivery system is not holding pressure and when you stop your car the gas at the engine runs back to the tank. You might also see if the engine will start immediately if you turn it off then restart right away compared to starts in the morning.
