Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

The clock on my 2003 VW Jetta TDI stopped working today a few hours after I successfully changed the hour (daylight saving time). It worked okay for about 3 hours but then stopped. There are numbers (2:34) but they don't change as time passes, and turning the knob clockwise or counterclockwise doesn't help. Further, the display next to the clock that shows transmission settings is now blank. My question is: is there a fuse that controls the clock and the display next to it?

A fuse could not cause the time to freeze. The instrument cluster sounds defective.

SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter

It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

Take your car to autozone or another parts store that will be willing to pull the OBD II diagnostic codes for free or buy an inexpensive $40-50 OBD II diagnostic reader.  

I have a 05 Jetta TDI 100K miles and a 99 Passat AEB wagon 140K miles, and I don't think there is a specific Catalytic converter instrument light, just a generic check engine light to inform you to pull the OBD II codes (there are hundreds of codes your Jetta can throw ... but not hundreds of lights on the dash;~) ).  If you don't overfill the car with oil, or drive like a maniac, the VW cats should last for 200-300K or better.  Of course I only wore out 40% of the original front brake pads in 100K miles in the Jetta too.  I know how to work on cars ... but prefer not to have to ... so I drive easy;~).

FYI - IF the cat is plugged up, your car will not have any power.  If you pass emission test and have poweer ... forget about the cat,  just read the codes

cheers

SOURCE: service now lights

With key off press and hold the 0.0 button on the cluster. With your other hand turn the key on while still holding 0.0 button press the minute button 1 second and you will see the service reset.

Hi There,

Here's a step-by-step from some great guys over at TDIClub.com
for an AAZ (which I'm assuming you have)

It's pretty involved, and some special tools are needed. I've seen kits for sale

Guys, what you are experiencing is the car built warning system. When your engine light blinks it indicates a Major Problem has occurred or is occurring in the engine. When this occurs the cars goes into a "safe," mode which means all power is cut by at least half in an effort to save the car from more major damage. You can take your VW to any large chain autoparts store (autozone, advance, etc) a lot of them are offering a free engine diagnosis. Do this if possible to see where the problems maybe coming from and ways to fix them.
