Question about Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Im being told that My ignition switch is the reason my 93 jetta wont start sometimes or why it dies while driving but the engine turns good when i'm trying to start it. If the ignition was bad would the engine turn. Seems more likly to be a fuel problem than an ignition problem right?

The engine just dies when going down the road and when I try to re-start, the motor won't turn over. Why is this happening?


You didn't tell us is you have the 4 banger, 3.0 or 4.0 V6 engine.

The engine can stall for a number of reasons. For a engine to run it requires air, fuel, compression, and spark at the proper time. I doubt air is the problem. The fuel pump may be cutting out (bad pump, bad relay, bad pump wiring inside the tank (my 93 3.0 Ranger had the last issue). The engine stall could be a lack of fire to the plugs. A bad (cracked) coil, ignition module problem, EFI computer or wiring problem, or maybe an ignition switch problem. The starting system is somewhat isolated and pretty much separate from the ignition system in general. This makes me suspicious of your ignition switch.

My 2006 vw jetta tdi lost power and died wont restart am told need code to restart but dont have right code


You will have to have the fault codes read by a code reading machine . That will tell you why the engine stopped. I am suggesting that you check to see if the cam shaft is turning when you try to start it as the timing belt may be broken. Repair/replace items listed by the codes -reset the CPU with the code reader

95 Pontiac Grand Am GT V6 just died wont start? starter is good, dont know if alternator or what?


If the engine will not crank, and the battery is fully charged, the only thing in play is the starter circuit. The ignition and alternator do not get involved until after the engine is started.
If the engine died and will not crank, you would need to check for voltage at the starter with the key switch in the start position.
You may need a manual with wiring diagrams to trace the circuits.

95 Eagle Talon stalls out after driving for a while. Has new ignition coil, plugs and wires, computer and fuel pump but I've been told it has something to do with the fuel line, any help?


I have the same year and stalls out occasionally in the beginning and now I can barely drive a quarter mile. All of the parts you listed I've tested and appear ok but what I'm thinking is not fuel because it would act crazy gasping for fuel but the camshaft and crankshaft sensors. If either of these are failing then the engine stops firing and dies. Also could be the alternator or battery. If not enough charge then the car could die. Mine dies like I turned the key off (and don't think it's ignition switch) and gauges all just drop to zero still sounds like engine is sort of on until I finally coast close to stopping and then dies and oil light comes on.

I have a 1983 jaguar xj6 thats having problems sometimes when i go 2 start it the instument panel lights /battery light ,seatbelt light,etc / wont light up on the dash and the car will turn over but not...


Sounds like you have a loose ground wire usually found at the the battery post, the distributor, coil or altenator. When a ground wire is loose it will sometimes start the car and let you drive until you go over a bump or make a turn or when you hit your brakes hard especially when parking and then it disconnects and the car will cut off and not start up when you return. Also make sure battery posts are clean and tight.

Saab 2001 93 Convertibale starting issues


check the coil pack or the ign switch below the ignition cyclinder.. since the ignition is in the console dirt (coffee) grim gets the connector fouled up sometimes.. check those first..
if those are fine check the starter .
