Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You want to make sure your ignition fuse did not blow. If not, if there is power in the vehicle, you may have a bad starter or starter solenoid. If you have no power, you need to check your battery connection. Even if you do have power, check it anyway. Make sure that your terminals are clean and tight. If one is loose, you want to tighten it. Make sure the terminals are not cracked. Inspect your wires from the battery to the starter. Make sure the battery is goods and holding a proper charge. Make sure the battery post are cleaned and there is no moisture spots on the battery. When you are working on the starter, make sure the battery is disconnected. Make sure the connections on the starter are not damaged and that they are connected properly. You may want to tap on the starter and see if that helps. Don't be afraid to hit it a good time or two. When you do this, they can catch sometimes and start. Even if it does, it still will need changed. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.
