Question about 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup
I have a 81 diesel PU with a 86 engine. Sometimes when I start it it'll run for a second or two and then die. After doing this several times it'll keep running. If I hold a volt meter on the fuel shut off switch I see power when the key is turned to the run position and then no power after the engine dies on it's own.
The wire from your solenoid valve goes directly to your ignition switch there is no fuse in line. The ignition switch contacts or the plug just behind the switch probably has a bad contact. The switch is easily replaceable, just one screw that holds it in place. They did have a tendency to wear out. Don't forget to check the plug behind the switch, and make sure that there is no immoblizer fitted that can give you the problem.
