You may need a new battery. This should solve your problems. While getting it changed, have a check on whether your alternator is charging properly.

Happy motoring.

Where is fuse for startermoter

There may be a fuse for the ignition system, but not specificly the Starter itself. Do you hear a "click" when you turn the key? If not
are you sure you have a good battery? Do other electric devices work? If you hear a click when turning to start and a good battery, You have starter solenoid problems. Is this a diesel? Could be the Starter motor Brushes. While somewhat hazardous, can you jump the car and get it started? Autoparts stores will help check battery and other electrical problems if you want to do it yourself. Otherwise you need dealer or reputable repair shop. If diesel engine (and fuel) I'd go to the dealer.

The car just clicks and doesn't start.


You may need to drive the car back to where you bought the battery. You may have a faulty battery or faulty alternator. When the car is running it should be charging from about 13.8amps and above. If the battery is completely depleted, a jump pack will not be able to jump start the vehicle.

Hope that helps.

1998 vw passat 1.8 wont start hot

In a lot of cases, this is an indication that the starter is faulty. A bad starter will often start a car when it's cold (ie first thing in the morning or after sitting a few hours). Once hot, the starter requires more and more energy to turn over. If when hot, you are able to start the car with a jump start, the starter would be the first place to investigate.

1998 VW Passat 1.8T is hard to start then idle is too high

Check the engine code. If It is P0103 then your mass air flow sensor is messed up. Also the wiring on the 1.8T deteriorate easily. Finally, you might have a vacuum leak. Check the hoses in and out of the intake box.
