Does it occur mainly after a rain or washing of the vehicle / and it may also be a feature that some vehicles have that will not allow it to start when such things as low oil is sensed or other fluid levels ...or perhaps a wire is jarred just enough {an exposed wire }to touch ground causing this as well or maby a cracked or dry rotted vacuum line is an issue ..even a loose fuse check these areas as well .......and look for anything just obvious disconnected corroded or otherwise .....hope this helps you

Won,t start after sitting for a short time, but will start fine when cold


Does it crank, yet not start? Or does it not even crank?
If it cranks and doesn't start, you could have a leaky fuel injector. Pull the plugs when this happens, and check them for fuel saturation.

If it doesn't even crank, it could be an intermittent starter.

I have a 2006 is250 lexus push button start and it only starts sometimes....radio, lights, nav everything works but it won't crank....takes 3-4 times before it cranks and it doesn't happen eve


The first thing you want to check for is the brake signal,without this signal it will not crank,this is the easy one make sure you get brake light,the second is to have the starter tested by a direct method,this gives the indication of the health of the starter

This morning it was very difficult to start my 03 Passat


VAG suffer greatly with a signal failure to ECU that brings the choke on when cold. Your fault is text book of this.

Follow the top radiator hose to where it meet the engine, at that point you will see a sensor, it has 4 wires and is held in by a horseshoe clip. This is the water coolant sensor, replace it and you'll be happy again :o)

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.

2003 GTI 1.8T ESP light on and cruise control inoperative.


If the ESP light on the touran stayys on pernamently then it is extremely likely that the ABS control unit is faulty. Its a common problem with tourans, unfortunately the part alone is about £1000.

Fuel pump relay working intermitently.


is the relay ok? i think what you are hearing could be 2 relays at the same time. i think the fuel relay works with another aluminium looking one. there's usually a few of them that are identical so you can swop to check.

I own a 2001 Golf GTi turbo that has trouble starting once the engin is hot. It starts fine when cold. The problem happens sporaticaly once out on errands. What could be the causes for the engine not...


the golf gti was plauged with a fault which vw will not own upto. it is a know fact that the induction manifold can sometimes fracture and allow unwanted air in when hot. if well serviced you will find this to be the problem. if not then i would strongly recomend that you service it.
