Question about Volkswagen Jetta
The speed sensor at the transmission is faulty and must be replaced. To locate the component if you are going to attempt to do the component replacement yourself jack up the front of the car and support it with jack stands, you may need to remove a plastic splash shield under the transmission some have one some don't. When looking up while under the transmission the speed sensor should be located near the part of the trans. where the axle shafts exit the transmission's body look for the wire and plug it will attach to the speed sensor. Don't mix up the neutral safety switch with the speed sensor if you first buy the sensor you will more easily ID the sensor because you'll have something to visually compare it to. In closing if you can't locate the component it may only be accessable from the top however unlikely, if you need to purchase a cd repair manual off ebay motors it has aelectrical component locator on the cd that is very useful for electrical sensor Identification and location along with step by step repair instructions for $20.00.

I 1st have to ask has the battery been tested? are the battery cables clean and free of any white looking corrosion? these 2 are the most common cause of this problem by far.
