Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
Was the car acting the same way before the battery change? Turn on the lights to see if the battery is charged--they should run for ten minutes or so without dimming. If not, charge the battery with an external charger--several hours with a high current charger, overnight with a low current charger. If charging the battery fixes the problem, then measure the battery voltage at the posts with the engine running--you should read 13.5 volts or a little more. If you read 12.6 volts or less, the alternator is likely in trouble. Take the car to AutoZone or similar business for a free check of the charging system. Hope this helps, but if doesn't, check back with us and include any additional symptoms noted plus what you have done to rectify things.
