These do have speed sensors. Most are on the tranny. Some do have them on the front wheel. The sensor either may be thuroughly dirty, or just bad. You can test it with an ohmmeter and try to clean it.

    That is usually always the case, except when the cluster goes bad which I have seen 1 out of 30 times

How do I build/repair a damaged wiring harness for a 1984 VW Jetta GL 1.6L non-turbo diesel 5 speed, manual steering?


You could try to just cut out the bad part and solder in the new wire to the good part of the old. Also clean up the affected area.

Is there a fuel pump reset on a 01 TDI jetta ? I ran out of diesel AMD now it won't start


When diesels run out of fuel they fill the lines with air. To get it to start you have to bleed the air out of the system starting at the fuel filter pump and any where else there is a bleed screw. IF you have or can get your hands on a owners manual or a work shop manual for your car then the process and location of bleeders will be explained.

I have a 2003 Jetta TDI and the coil light comes on and flashes


Amazingly enough, If one or more of your brake lights is burned out this can cause the Glow plug indicator to flash, replace the burned out bulb(s). This often sets a Code but will not turn on the Check Engine light. It took me forever to find this solution first time it happened. I've seen it many times since.

Yellow engine warning light on 02 TDI Jetta


You should get the OBD codes read. This should pinpoint the problem. This light is connected to an emmissions problem. Re setting it will do nothing as it will come back on as soon as the on-board computer re=booths. As you dont have a loss of power,it sounds very like one of the lamda units is faulty, but do the code reading to be sure.
Best of luck with it

Jetta beeps 3 times while ESP light is on


Probably one of the ESP sensors have faulty connection.These sensors measure the speed of the wheels ,if they are not connected then ESP cannot work.For safety reasons the system will not start up and gives you this error message.

Glow plug indicator blinking


Your glow plugs are going bad and need to be replaced. This is a sign to you that they are basically running all the time because they dont know that thye are heated up and the car is running. Common problem with diesels
