Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
Came accroww to a water bed on a intersection and the power went off. Couldn't stated it. The next three day I tried and it did started bud only for 30 minutes and died until now. I have changed a fused under the hood close to the driver side but still does not start. Is there another fuse or relay (electrical device) or is it really the fuel pump. I have disconnected the fuel line and when I tried the ignition did not pump any gas. Thank you in advance for your time.
The only sensible way forward is to get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You
could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer once you are confident.
There are lots of possible reasons for the problem and guessing will not really help. It does sound like water has got into one or more sensor connectors and the list of fault codes might tell you which one. After that you can carefully remove the suspect connectors and clean them or remove corrosion or do whatever seems to be needed. If you are stuck 100 miles from the nearest VW expert you could try removing the sensor connectors one by one and cleaning them, but that is a last resort!
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
