Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

Brand new battery, won't start, will with jump.

My car died a couple days ago, wouldn't turn on/over/anything. Got a jump and it worked fine, so I figured I'd leave directly and get a new battery. I parked my car in the lot, talked to a mechanic and was told to drive around. Car started fine, stopped in the shop, got a new battery and then it wouldn't start again, same as before with the old battery. I asked for them to jump it... after five minutes, it worked. And that seems to work every time I need to start my car... what's the problem? And moreover, what's the solution?

It sounds like your alternator is not charging your battery properly. I would have that tested.

2003 Saturn Vue with a identity anti theft system. Replaced my battery a few months ago. Couple weeks ago noticed a little difficulty starting up. Last week wouldn't start just clicking noise. Jumped...


Anti-theft system has nothing to do with it . Battery cables , maybe , Park neutral safety switch possibly ! With anti-theft system problem you wouldn't a click or anything , that is if the anti-theft disables fuel or the starter . Plus the SECURITY light would be on if it were a anti-theft system problem . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that knows how to do starter circuit testing >

How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

And what's this identity anti theft system ? No such thing ! The vehicle has a content theft an vehicle theft deterrent system !
This system disables fuel not cranking of the engine. The VCM/PCM will not disable the fuel due to any BCM message for the remainder of the ignition cycle.
If the VCM/PCM does not receive the same password from the BCM as the last learned one, the vehicle will start and then stalls due to the Fuel Lockout.

I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500. Once again, it wouldn't start. The battery was completely dead, and it would not even start with a jump. Replaced the battery, started fine. But, now the voltage...


Battery was completely dead ? after how long , over night , or just out of the blue ? These year GM vehicle's 03 to 06 have instrument cluster problems , draining the battery . Do you know what parasitic draw is ? Google it . They used lead free solder constructing the electronics , an after a while it causes silver migration .
