Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

How do i fix A 2001 volkswagen passat Starter? Do i need to replace the started or is there anyway it can be bypassed so there will be a much smaller cost.

So far on the volkswagen passat I have tried to smack the starter with a hammer, while i had another person trying to turn the key over and Nothing occured. When the key is in the ignition it sounds like it may be an electrical problem and just makes a sound. I am unable to reach the started because of the right swing arm, Is in the the same position of the started and i am just confused at this point on where i should start. Thanks Again Stephan.

You can by pass the starter and it is called push starting it
there is no by pass and the real answer is to replace the starter
Take it to an accredited auto electrician or a service dealer and have it done properly

Volkswagen passat 95 wont start in park position


It sounds like the starter safety switch is bad. It prevents the car from starting in other gears beside neutral. Try placing the gear selector in neutral and see if it starts. If it does not, then the switch needs replacing.
