SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter
It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

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.

just wrote this post and came across your problem i had some time ago , this will fix it . you can reset it by removing negative battery terminal while leaving positive terminal connected . open driver side door get in close door , put key in ignition turn over key almost all the way but do not start . you should here the throttle body aligning itself . leave key in this position for 15 seconds , remove key connect negative terminal and the throttle body should be set . this has been called the chicken dance and it works fine . what this does is resets the computer , key note though if you are planning to get your car inspected it will not pass until you have drove the car for at least 300 miles . being that the computer has to go through and set everything . i learned the hard way . throttle body problems usually happen when removing old battery improperly/battery being drained/improperly or jump starting the car/improperly , make sure when removing battery that the positive terminal is removed first , jumping a battery negative terminal is always connected first on both vehicles .
