95 Jetta won't start weird buzzing sound near fuses

My 95 Jetta suddenly will not start. It will crank over but makes a strange buzzing sound near fuses under dash. I tried to check fault codes but "check engine" light does not light up even though other lights do come on. I'm wondering if that means bag ecm. HELP!!

Jettas were notorious for electrical issues. I fought with one for 2 years.
The starter relay is on top of the starter in the center rear of the engine compartment near the firewall. Its mounted at the top of the bell housing, underneath the intake and next to the exhaust manifold and hard to get at from both the top and bottom. Personally, I'd take it to a good respectable foreign mechanic. Not worth fighting with

S-10 Sometimes Starts, Mechanic Can't Find Problem


Yep, heres one. Start with pulling the crank fuse. The fuse is probably good, but you have a corrosion/contact issue. Putting it back will solve this issue. I would do all of them, as one will do it, more are sure to follow. Also do they relays. Next would be checking wires. Most times wires will loose connection at the plug, sometimes they will break right at the plug.

My 95 sierra dies and won't start. no lights on dash then suddenly lights come on and truck will start. please help.


first check the connections at the battery. make sure there is no corrosion between the cable end and the battery.

When you say it wont start can you hear the starter cranking the engine over or is the vehicle completely dead?

If its completely dead I would check for power to the ignition switch. if there is power than I would check for power out of the switch. If there is no power than possible the ignition switch is failing.

I might be able to get you some wiring info if needed. just let me know.

Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits ? Using a volt meter an wiring diagram to locate problems ?

Your flywheel may have broke or the crank could have broke. If the crank broke the engine is done. Try to turn the engine over by hand. You can put a socket on the crank pully bolt and try to turn it.make sure the key is off and out of the ignition. Sorry for your loss.

Do you have the tow package on your vehicle? If you do it sounds like your trailer electric brake controller is shorted out (normally mounted under the dash on drivers side). There should be a fuse that controls your tow package either in the fuse panel or as an in-line fuse.

If that isn't it, then I would suggest a clamp on amp meter to help you narrow down what is draining your battery. BUT have you had your battery tested to make sure it is good?

Hello , It sounds like you may have a very strange grounding wire problem. Do you have an alarm with shock sensor by chance? Check all connections around the battery and make sure all black wires are clean , connected tight. Make sure the battery connections are clean , dry and tight as well. Thank you , Quinn

Change the Engine speed sensor. This can sometime cause your dash to do all sorts of weird things when they fail, such as setting the low fuel warning off as well. strange but true ! good luck

I would listen for the fuel pump(take the gas cap off and listen for the buzz when someone turns the key on), if no buzz or whine then have them crank the engine.If still no noise then take a hammer and hit the middle of the gas tank while the car is being started(make sure E-brake is applied)If it starts it's your fuel pump.
