I just had the same problem and it turned out to be a fuse. It was a small 10 amp fuse. Make sure you take ALL fuses out and look at them.

99 vw passat replaced battery now car wont start


Turn your key in the ignition to on position and Check to see if your radio and lights work. If everything is turning on then most likely the anti-theft system was activated when removing the old battery. Look for some kind kill switch underneath your steering wheel

Tryed to change the battery in my 2000 Volkswagon Passat


There is a way of running it by putting the spare key in the ignition and turning the ignition on but dont start the car, put the second key in the drivers lock and turn as if you are opening it until you hear 2 beeps, then press the unlock button on the remote while in the door.The car should beep once and flash the indicator lights.Remove the door key and remove the ignition key then lock the car using the remote.Open the car and try the ignition.Some systems lose the memory of the key chip so this may help you but with technology it works for some and not for others.

1996 ford explorer anti theft wont let car start when battery die


Do you have a keyless entry? You could try to enter your vehicle using the keypad on the drivers side door, This should turn off the anti-theft security.

Car wont start, no clicks no sound


make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?

if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.

good luck
