Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Next time let the dealer put in the part so if it is not the problem you can have them take out the wrong part and put in the correct one to fix the problem. If you are going to fix it yourself be sure to get the part you need or the update kit (if that adapts the 8 prong to the 7 prong) from a Volkswagen dealer, so you know the part is correct. If the dealer installs the part and it does not work , then they are obligated to try again or even take back the part if it is not part of the fix. Sometimes the fix can involve more than one item going bad. If you fix it yourself then you take the responsibility that the mechanic was right or wrong , he or she is off the hook and only has to say "Gosh , I'm sorry that did not work". Unfortunately , most electrical parts are not returnable (unless your the mechanic in the dealership) and you do not know if plugging in the wrong part hurt other things. Have you tried putting the old part back in to see if you can back to where you were. If your car starts you may just need to get the correct pump relay (try a salvage yard for an 8 prong).
