Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

We have a new style VW Jetta (1999) .. need to locate the speed sensor. Check engine light is on again after sensor was replaced by mechanic. Car would /will not shift into high gear and chk eng light is back on. Don't know if mechanic actually replaced the sensor. Now says it may be an internal problem. I'm thinking it may have been a loose or bad connection that is 'acting up' again or if it was replaced then this one is bad also. Don't see the logic in mechanic saying now that it may be internal problem, doesn't sound right. I would suspect the connection is bad or if unit was replaced then this one is bad also, before thinking "internal problem' that means more $$$ for the mechanic. What do you think?

What you say sounds right, but good be internal, the first thing is to check the wiring to sensor and also a defective part is not an uncommon thing, the speed sensor is located on the rear of the trany,near the axle housing, i would check the connection and then test sensor or replace it

1999 VW Jetta- all dash lights (ABS, Brake, Airbag, Check Engine) went on and then the car died. It restarted when I had a jump but only made it 1 mile before dying again. Is it the alternator?


Sure is, the regulator in the alternator went out. You can test this by starting the car and disconnecting the battery while the engine is running. If the car dies, you have a bad alternator.

2001 vw jetta gs :check engine light goes on and off


sounds like a faulty sensor tripping and reconnecting.. the next time the light comes on, take it to an advance auto store or an auto zone, they can read your codes for free... this will tell you what is being tripped, that way you know exactly what you need to get checked and/or fixed instead of a mechanic poking around trying to find everything thats NOT wrong. but if you are not expeiriencing any difficulty with the car, you should be fine. the check engine light actually means alot less than most people think. its usually a transmission or emissions sensor, or even as simple as leaving your gas cap off after filling and then driving for awhile.

2000 volkswagon jetta engine noise and new plugs skipping


engine is pinking,predetonation of fuel or the fuel mixture is weak which can be caused by a vacumn leak on the inlet manifold ,such as the take off for the servo ,or the manifold bolts loose.Also the timing is set wrong which could be a fault with sensor or the sensor drive ring .Without the car in front of me i cannot really diagnose a fault like this ,either get the VW mechanic to have a look and if he thinks its electronic then take it to VW
