Yes, we were told by our Service Manager that they are having issues with the 2.5 engine. But, don't know what the issue is. We were told to use 91 Octane fuel, purchase gas from Top Tier gas retailers and park the car in the garage (keep the car warm). The car should be able to run on the recommened low grade gas (stated in the owners manual). I have the Technical Bulletin from VW. It basicaly states us consumer are getting contaminated gas and we need to purchase gas at Top Tier retailer. Shame on VW for blaming the consumer on their engine issues. VW could be the new cover up?

Daisymoses... I am having the same issue with the same car and I have been fighting with VW about this problem and they admitted to the 2.5 engine having problems. Have you heard anything?

Vw jetta glx vr6 key turns in ignition,but nothing happens


The first thing I would check is the starter motor fuse and relay, but the lights staying on is weird. Perhaps the ignition key switch is defective. That could be caused by many things including wear and tear / moisture / insects, especially if the car is old and you are living in a warm and humid climate.

09 mercedes c350 won't start able to turn ignition switch unable to shift no noise no nothing


I just went through this two days ago. You probably need a new ignition. What happens is these cars lose connection for some reason to the chip in the key and it can't be fixed with just programming. It has to be a whole new ignition. Mercedes are so much different then to any American car. Good luck and it costed around 950 to fix in Wa state.

I need help! I have a 1996 vw Jetta! Wont start and wont crank! Dash lights come on but when I turn the key nothing happens! What should I check?


I would check to see if you are getting power to the small wire on the starter solenoid when you turn the key to the starting postion. If you do, the starter is bad. If not, you probably have a bad ignition switch.

Turn ignition key but won't start..All power on, is it starter?


Can be a Junk Relay, access is limited, but giving the Starter a "crack" with a mallet, often cures the problem temporarily. But check the Battery terminals, and Cable to the Starter solenoid ,first for tightness and security.

Vw jetta wont let me start it


It's an ignition problem. If you keep trying to turn over it will start. It's an anti theft device they installed. The little car with the flashing key. Someone likely tampered with your ignition before for this to happen.
