1996 vw Polo classic 1.8i delay on activating starter

I have a 1996 vw Polo classic 1.8i that often has quite a delay (can be 3-4 secs) between turning the ignition key to the start position and the starter motor actually kicking in. Sometimes switching on the ignition and then waiting 5 secs before trying to start seems to improve the situation. This seems to imply that something is slow to enable the engine start after the ignition comes on.

    Checked the starter wires at the starter motor and all is secure

  • pierrenye Jun 22, 2010

    any other ideas
    Could it be something like a temperature switch playing up?

VW Polo Classic 1997 IDLE Problems


Hello, VW polos 1.0, 1.4. 1.6, suffer from carbon bulid up in the throttle bodys causing bad idling, esp the Bosch Mono-Motronic (Throttle Body Injection systems), a good clean with carb cleaner should repair the problem, also engine temp sensor replacement and idle speed control valve replacement can help idle problems.
