How come my wagon won't start but only sometimes?


Sounds like weak connection somewhere,I would start by one at a time,clean by scraping the prongs of each fuse. If this does not resolve your issue go by one of the parts houses that provide free electrical and charging system checks

The headlights/heater/wiper in my car were flicking on and off. i would here a click in the fuse box when this happened. now my heat and head lights dont turn on at all...unless i hold my high beam on...


You need a new ignition switch. Should be an Autozone part # LS747 for a 98 Jetta. It is a common point of failure on that car. You only need the electrical portion of the switch, not that part the key goes into. I have the exact same problem with mine right now. If you can do the work yourself, the part is only $30 or so.

I turn the key and get all battery power to sterio and everything but when i turn the key to start it nothing happens the engine doesnt even try to turn over... would i need to just get a new starter or...


If you hear a click then nothing happens then 1- Either the battery is weak. Stereo doesn't need a lot of current. You can turn on the head light and horn at the same time so see if your battery could deliver all current needed to justify the battery. 2- Or your starter solenoid is bad, its poor contacts inside could not carry enough current to the starter to turn over. If you hear nothing, everything is quite then there is a problem with the safety switch at your transmission shifter. This switch is to recognize the Park position before enabling a circuitry to the solenoid starter.

My diesel engine on my VW TDI Jetta is having a hard time turning over. It takes forever to start and seems to be getting worse.


Have someone replace your fuel filters ($$$) and put a bottle of "Lucas Diesel Additive" available at Advance Auto Parts $8
P.S. If you have PREMIUM Diesel available in your area (BP-Chevron) run that for a couple of tanks.
Good Luck

Power to headlights fan and wipers intermitantly cuts out


sounds like it is a lower ignition switch problem. The upper ignition switch is where you insert the key, The lower is an electrical switch that causes this issue. This car probably has air bags, if so, not recommended for an unlicenced technician.
