Hi i bought a vw beetle was running fine the last few days. I went to drive it yesterday and it wont start the immobiliser is showing its not flashing tho. My step dad replaced the car keys battery the day...


My immobiliser keeps flashing until I put the key in the ignition and then it stops. Normally changing key batteries has a period that if the battery is changed inside that time (say 5 minutes) then the key program will not loose memory Run fault codes to see if there is a problem in the electronics. Otherwise you may have to take the car to the dealer to have the key reprogrammed to the cpu in the car

THE NEXT STEP IS ,( WHEN IT DOES NOT START), CHECK TO SEE IF IT IS : NO-SPARK, OR NO-FUEL CONDITION THIS WILL LEAD YOU TO THE NEXT STEP. YOU MUST HAVE THREE THINGS TO RUN. SPARK, FUEL & COMPRESSION. HOPE THIS HELPS MOTOR62500..

2001 VW Beetle Will not start


Hi.
Check the heavy duty cables from the battery to the starter motor and solenoid and also the battery earthing (grounding?) - there terminals could be corroded / burned.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at all. Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D
