Hi,

Possibly any of three (2) possibilities:
1. battery and charging system;
2. starting system.

The battery might not be charging properly and therefore does not have sufficient power to start the car and/or looses its charge (discharges) by itself.

The starter system is initiated at the ignition switch when the key is turned to start. At this point, the ignition switch then provides +12VDC to a starter relay (if the vehicle has got one) but more often straight to the starting solenoid. The relay is but a remote switch with slightly higher amperage capacity. The starter relay then engages and supplies +12VDC to the staring solenoid. The starting solenoid then performs two (2) functions. It provides the switching action (hundreds amps) from the battery heavy cable to the actual starter motor. The solenoid likewise pushes a small pinion gear along the shaft of the starter motor to engage the ring gear. The ring gear is of course on the edge of the flywheel which in turn is attached to the crankshaft.

Starter system problems could be corrected by:
1. check battery, battery cables and connections;
2. charge the battery if required;
3. clean brushes and guides of brush holders of the starter motor;
4. clean the commutator and commutator segments;
5. check/replace the armature or field coils if determined to be defective;
6. in some extreme cases it could be the drive pinion or the flywheel gear ring is defective.
7. often it is the big switch that the solenoid activates that looses contacts causing no +12V internally to the motor.
8. Most likely would be a defective starter relay or the IGN switch itself. Relative to this, you might try and check the connectors/terminals and electrical joints.

In the picture below, the upper portion is the starter solenoid while the one below it is the actual starter.

Given the amount of work to overhaul a starter, you might consider just replacing it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi i have a 2005 model 1.4 polo TDI, and sometimes when i'm driving it would cut power but still drives not with the initial power it had before, what could be the problem?


You need to have a Diagnostic test done by plugging in a fault code reader to determine the cause of the fault. The car will be going into limp home mode ie engine management light on it reduces engine performance. if you have a yellow spanner symbol then the likely cause is due to one of the engine electrical components such as the egr valve solenoid or maff (air flow meter)

When you have replaced the TB turn on ignition to the RUN position. Do not start the engine.

After 10 to 15 seconds you should hear the TB cycling. Allow another 45 seconds before turning off the key.

Remove key.

Insert key and start engine.

Warm Idle should be 750 rpm, plus/minus 40rpm.

If this is unsucsessful....you need a scanner to go to 'Engine' and go to 60 Basic, to set ''Throttle Adaption.''

Have a strange humming noise that can be heard


Hi:
Often "humming" noises like what you are experiencing are caused by a failing bearing somewhere. Some usual suspects are wheel bearings, alternator bearings, and sometimes even your waterpump, but usually it starts leaking too. To start narrowing down what it is, have someone ride with you to see if the noise is coming from left side or right side, or engine area, then see if it happens when the car is not moving, or just when the drive wheels are pulling the car? This way , hopefully you can pin point the culprit!

this is a turn in caliper, meaning that as you try to compress the piston, you also need to rotate it clockwise. you can buy tool for this at nearly any parts store, and is fairly inexpensive.
