SOURCE: P103 code in a 98 VW Jetta, 2.0 liter

THAT LEAK IS UN-METERED AIR ENTERING THE ENGINE, FIX IT AND RETEST SYSTEM. P103 IS A MAF CODE. A MAF MEASURES THE AIR ENTERING THE ENGINE, AND BASED THAT AND ON OTHER DATA THE PCM DECIDES THE AMOUNT OF FUEL TO INJECT.

SOURCE: 2003 VW Jetta Charging problem

problem is that the voltage regulators on the 1.8t which I am sure is the same on the TDI alternator....is that they may work fine when they are cold....but once they warm up is when they start acting up and causing problems. I assume is has to do with some resistor over heating. This is just a common problem noticed by most people over at VWvortex.com.
So you can take your alternator to get tested but if it is tested cold then well it may appear to be working ok. When in reality it is broken. Trust me...it is a cheap enough part and easy enough to fix to not just try it. Some can even change the regulator without taking the alternator out. If you have small enough hands I can see it being done.

SOURCE: 03 jetta shut off while driving.

Check the load reduction relay. I had this happen twice and repaired twice on my TDI mk IV. It throws no codes and almost has to be witnessed by a mechanic to be believed.

I suspect that the voltage regulator on the back of your alternator has partially failed and must be replaced. See the video at this site for more information: http://www.howtomakeonline.org/Y6A4GMoneyPFqhjv/VW-Jetta-Tdi-Alternator-removal-&-Voltage-Regulator-Repair-part-1.html

Power draw on a 98 vw jetta gt


There are two problems which might be occurring besides the obvious battery terminals needing to odd wire brushing to expose pure silver lead at the conact posts and inside the post clamps. My 2002 Jetta actually had a crushed wiring harness - Good stuff but it may have been assembled somewhere other than Germany and someone banged the wiring just enough to short or create resistance in the crushed copper. This was solved by a new wiring harness under the hood which also involved the Diesel glow plugs burning up all the time. Second problem may be badly installed diodes in the Alternator. I heard that some have them installed backwards, but only one of them in the group, so of course that would play havock with your charging system even though it will have enough forward power to run your engine. Also the control plug-in wiring on the Alternator sometimes gets salt on it and corrosion then won't let the system be able to get currant to your Alternator to make any power. This is a cheap problem to fix, just buy a new $8 Alternator plug-in and solder it to your wiring cable with good heat shrink wrap insulating tubes and a hair dryer.

Battery drain


My wife's 2001 Jetta TDI had the same problem. First we changed the battery. (It was just about due anyway) No change. We then traced the power drain to the in-trunk mounted CD changer. This was an aftermarket CD changer but we went to the same source that the VW dealership uses. Of course one blames the other. The CD changer was even replaced with no change. If we are not using the car for long trips we unplug the CD changer and no more dead battery! Neither the VW dealer nor the AV installer could give us a good working solution to this problem.
