I have a 95 Jetta and had the same problem. My alarm kept taking over my car preventing it from starting. I paid to have the alarm removed and now no problems.

Starting issue. Electrical problem


I had the same problem with a Mercury. It was the starter. Had a bad field winding. When I would try to start the engine the battery cables tried to straighten out. Might take a look at the battery cables when trying to start the engine.

try checking the throttle position sensor or the idle control valve both can keep it from running.

87 'C' Class motorhome powered by a ford 460 factory rebuilt motor. When cold starts with no problem. When hot acts like battery is dead. Has new battery,second new starter, ground wires new, starter &...


I had same problem in varius trucks and motorhomes with the same engine size (460)and this is caused by excesive heat from the engine in all 460's,when hot if I stoped at a gas station to fill,once I tryed to start it again it felt like the battery was almost dead and bearly turned the engine over.what I did was that I added an after market engine oil cooler and that fixed the problem.

My 4.0 starts great when cold, but is very hard to start when hot. Any ideas?


Sounds like the electronic module needs to be replaced. Unplug the old one take out the mounting screws get a new one at the auto parts place plug it in replace the mounting screws and it should be ready to go it's not hard

Electrical. wont re-start unless cold.


You probably have some corrosion on your battery terminals. Make sure they are clean and connected good and tight.

Cold temps starter will not turn over the engine


I had same problem with my 03 jetta. I replaced battery to better cca and it did nothing. Each shop I went to had no idea. My friend who is a car guy installed a push button start. He told me his audi did the same thing and that it worked on that car as well. He said something like in the cold something condenses and shrinks and it won't spark, I know nothing about cars, so I can find out exactly what he did if you want. I do know that it works great and the parts were like 15 bucks total.

It was about -30 outside and i tried to start my jetta, it turned over a couple of times but now it wont do anything. everything else works but the starter wont turn the engine over


These engines require a LOT of amperage from the battery. A battery's amperage output is severely decreased in the cold weather. If your battery is old, it may not have the power to turn the engine over. Your solutions are (1) warm the engine to allow for easier turn-over and (2) put a charger on the battery to keep it warm in cold weather. The first can be accomplished by having your dealer install a soft-plug block heater. As to charging the battery, be sure the charger is one that monitors the battery's charge and turns itself off when the battery is fully charged.
If this does not help, then your cold cranking may have caused your starter to begin to fail. Good Luck and stay warm!
