Unlock car with key/hold key over for 30 secs...lock car with key/hold over for 30 secs,then press remote button to unlock and hold down for 30 secs.you have just reset the system.AND if your car has the comfort mode the windows will go down then up when you hold the key over so you reset the window rollback as well.

    I'm having the same problem, but my '98 Jetta did not come with a "remote" key, only the simple, basic, old metal key with no electronic components.

What is the fuse number for radio in 2007 vw jetta automatic


Not sure which fuse it is, but it will be in your manual in the glove box. Your radio may need reset, though. Volkswagen has anti-theft radios and in some instances you will need to have them reset. Your manual in the glovebox will tell you if your radio has this feature.

How to disconnect anti theft


It is hard to give a definite answer because I don't know which and how many wires were damaged...Anti theft can be a real HEADACHE.....You can begin by disconnecting battery cables..Use your VIN number for parts,Get new ignition with a programmed factory key from dealer only.....They probably blew certain fuses and or relays when this happened...Or maybe not..Install new ignition connect battery cables..,turn switch on just to check for bad fuses and relays...Disconnect battery again...replace any fuses blown...Connect battery again...( Each time you disconnect battery it resets the computer system and should clear anti theft codes..)..make sure all doors are unlocked by using door remote key fob....Now see if vehicle will crank..If all is done correctly it should start...However I don't know how much damage was done.....It may possibly be too much work to totally disengage anti theft....You could start with removing all fuses and relays related to anti theft but disconnect battery before...I DO NOT RECOMMEND trying to disable the theft system.....You may create more headaches that you want.......Begin by trying what I described just to be safe...!!....

Fuse number eleven keeps blowing on 1998 lincoln conttenial what works that fuse


The equipment connected with this fuse is listed as the Ignition coils, the radio interference capacitor, the PCM relay and the passive Anti-theft System Module.

I think I would replace the PCM relay as it is the only part listed which has moving parts inside. In addition, you can check if the PCM relay is the same part as the Horn relay and use the horn relay in place of the former PCM relay. If your short goes away, then you know the old PCM relay was bad.

If the fuse breaks before you crank the engine, you could disconnect the coils and see if the fuse still breaks.

The radio capacitor, you need a little better diagram to identify this wire and when disconnected, you would know if the fuse breaks or not.

If its the anti-theft, then that is more complicated to solve. Test all the other stuff first.

Please let me know what you find.

1997 Pontiac Firebird, will not crank. Changed fuel pump and the relay, now the security light is coming on and injectors will not engage...HELP


On my '97 Camaro, the first thing I hear when turning the ignition key is the fuel pump run and the fuel rail pressure up. .
First thought is, manual cars must have clutch depressed and auto cars in Park or Neutral to enable cranking. If these inhibit switches are faulty then that could be your problem. Had an old 5-speed manula Pontiac Fiero with a faulty inhibit switch. I just bypassed the switch with a piece of jumper wire. Just had to remember to ensure car was in neutral when starting!!
Do you have a shop manual with wiring diagrams? The Haynes manual schematic covering both Camaro and Firebird diagram shows a theft deterrent relay between the starter key switch and the main starter solenoid mounted on the starter motor. This relay actuating coil has a volts feed on one side of the coil from the inhibit switches fitted to ensure the car is in Park or Neutral for Automatics or the clutch must be depressed for manual cars. The other side ot this relay coil is grounded via the Theft Deterrent Module.
There is also a further fuse. Number 16, a 3 amp fuse labelled "Crank fuse" that is labelled as going to the Diagnostic Energy Reserve Module. Not sure what that is but with the fuse labelled "crank fuse" it sounds important!! it may be linked to the theft deterrent module but my manual is not clear on that.
If all the fuses are OK then I think the problem lies in the anti theft system.
To bypass the anti-theft and enable cranking you could simply break the yellow/black wire from the theft deterrent relay and ground the relay coil. (cut the wire and connect to ground / chassis, the bit going to the relay not going toward the anti-theft module) Turning the starter key should then apply volts that are coming from the transmission inhibit or clutch inhibt switches to the coil of the theft inhibit relay. This relay then pulls in and applies vots to the main starter solenoid and so enable cranking. The starter solenoid should be heard as a solid thunk as it pulls in. Small relays as a tick.
If this works then wire in a hidden switch in this ground wire to act as a unique anti theft device.
However if the vehicle control electronics are also fried then you will still have problems.
Hope all this is of some help and best of luck.
Cheers, Brian. (Over in Manchester, England, Europe)
