Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Sometimes The Engine will not Turn over or Start after Key turn

When I put the key in the ignition and turn it, sometimes nothing happens, the radio turns on so I know it's not the battery, but the engine will not turn over. Than turn the key back try it again and again than all of a sudden it will start. What may be the problem, is it a sign the starter is going out, or is there a selanoid between the key and starter that may be going out?

Most likely there is a problem with the starter. The solenoid is part of the starter assembly.

My 07 Chevy won't start sometimes and remote key entry doesn't work sometimes is this a computer problem


Not necessarily , without testing i would be just guessing . Could be a lose connection , ground circuit problem . Won't start sometimes ? Could you give a little more info on this ! Won't start how ? When you turn the key to start nothing happens , starter doesn't spin the engine or it does an the vehicle won't start an run . 07 chevy what ? model , engine size ? The ignition switch is a low voltage input to the BCM - body control module , the BCM defines what mode to put the vehicle in . Start mode sends a class 2 message over serial data bus to the PCM /ECM which will energize the starter / crank relay . There are very complex electronics involved here . Have you had it to the Dealer ?

2002 Chrylser Town and Country. When we put the key in the ignition everything lights up like it should. You turn the key just to the on position and the the engine starts to turn over, but will not...


The Ignition Key assembly has a loose wire at the back. Remove it and fix the wires. The other possibility is that your Ignition Key assembly is faulty or damaged. Sometimes, if the wrong key is inserted, it could cause permanent damage of this kind.
These apply to all cars.

I have an R reg Hyundi accent MVI Coupe and suffering serious stress. sometimes it starts sometimes it doesnt. When I put key in ignition and turn it ....nothing happens. it almost appears as if their is...


I have the same model and year Coupe, and have problems starting it sometimes. I'm not sure it's the same problem you're having, as you say nothing happens when you turn the ignition key. On mine the engine turns over but doesn't start. It usually happens if I've been driving, stopped and then tried to drive off again.
In my case it's the ignition lead - to get it going I have to pop the bonnet/hood, pull apart the plugs that connect the two halves of the ignition lead together, then reconnect them.
I'm guessing the plugs are just slightly loose and/or the contacts need cleaning (haven't gotten around to sorting it properly yet). Loose plugs would explain why it's okay until after I've been driving; presumably the plugs get shaken loose during the drive.

Might not be the same problem on yours but it might give you somewhere to start.
Hope it's of some help!

Ican turn the key on and I get dash lights when I turn it over nothing happens but sometimes when I kept it turned over it would eventually start. do you think my problem is in the ignition at the key


if you turn the key and the engine doesnt turn over..then its ill have something to do with the starter or the ignition..if it turns over but it takes a while to start then it may be improper gas mixture, low cylinder pressure or a number out things...if you can be more specific then ill be happy to try and help...

IGNITION PROBLEM


does the security light flash on dash with key in and not working? sometimes the key has a resistor in it and if you have a second set you could try that,also theres a wire on the ignition key switch that breaks in the insulation so sometimes you have contact sometimes not

Some it starts


my 97 geo metro will not start when I turn the ignition key. The radio will work, buzzer etc. I can jump it with another car and it will start and run. If I turn ignition key to start, there is absolutely no crank, no click, no nothing. Could this be ignition module, bad battery, voltage regulator, starter?
