SOURCE: need to locate fuel pump on 96 jetta

1996 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L SFI 4cyl

On a Digifant fuel system, the fuel pump is mounted in a reservoir under the rear of the vehicle. The fuel filter is also in this area. The reservoir holds one liter of fuel and is supplied by a small transfer pump in the tank. The transfer pump can be replaced separately even though they are installed and removed as a unit.

The Motronic system uses two fuel pumps. The first is a small transfer pump to get the fuel out of the tank and the second boosts the fuel pressure to the necessary amount. The transfer pump is located inside the tank and the main pressure pump can be found under the vehicle. This transfer pump is located under the rear seat and is part of the fuel gauge sending unit. The main fuel pump can be found in the reservoir in front of the rear axle beam. There is a check valve inside this pump to maintain pressure in the lines, especially on hot days, to avoid vapor lock. The fuel filter is mounted to the side of the reservoir. This filter has no specified replacement interval and should be good for the entire service life of the vehicle. Whenever the ignition key is in the on position, the pump should run for at least two (2) seconds to pressurize the fuel lines. If the Engine Control Unit (ECM) does not see a signal from the Hall Effect sensor in the distributor it will shut the pump off. If a Hall Effect signal is present, the pump will continue to run as long as a signal is detected. It is this Hall Effect signal that signals the ECM that the engine is rotating therefore indicating that fuel is needed. The pump is operated via a relay that is controlled by the ECM. This relay is located in the vehicles fuse panel. The main contacts of the relay can be jumped to run the pump during testing.

96 JETTA TREK RUNNING HOT I HAVE REPLACED THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE AND WATER PUMP WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE OF THE OVER HEATING


Run the car and check your hoses, Most likely it is the thermostat sticking closed and not allowing water to flow back to the radiator if your top hose is not hot and you can squeeze it then it is your thermostat.

Trunk release


I had the same problem with my 96 jetta trek edition, solenoid was engaging but the trunk was jammed, went in via back seat, fold down the seat and crawled into the trunk unscrewed the latch, cleaned and greased the latch mechanism and hinges, then screwed latch back, no problem since. The fusebox is underneath the dashboard, if the fuse is good, test the solenoid to see if it is working correctly, be careful have an expert in electricity do the testing for you, if solenoid is good, might be your switch in your console, if the switch is good, might be mechanical, these are basic troubleshooting procedures.
