This sounds like a break in the supply to the ignition switch, trace back from the ignition switch to the electrical block connector, open this up and check for corrosion,also observ the outer of the connector where the wires go into the plug gently pull on each wire to asses its worthieness,( most likely )it may be the contact plate inside the switch has become worn along with the switch floating contacts, carefull dissasebly of the switch will show any faults as mentioned, if this is the case, using a peice of course emery paper on a flat surface hold the contact plate face down on to the emery paper and sand away untill the contacts are all proud with the plate, the wires to the switch may have become lose on their soldered joints. Good luck, paul

Check your starter button it may be dirty. You can spray it with electrical contact cleaner or WD-40 and work it to clean up the contacts. David Mazon

Need to remove the starter motor


Gather all of the fob remote car starters for your car, unless you only have one. Insert your key into the ignition turn it to the "On" position --- right before actually starting the car, the lights should turn on. Press and hold the "Lock" button on your fob remote car starter for one second. Turn your key to the "Off" position --- the car lights should turn off. Do this within five seconds of turning the key to the "On" position and don't remove the key once you've turned it to the "Off"...

Hi i have a vw bora which doesnt start but has ignition lights, when key is turned lights dont fade and there is no click from starter motor


check connections on starter , the small feed should get power when you turn key to start/crank position, if no power to that check the outputs on the back of the switch /ignition barrel,
if power to starter, then check power to back off starter on large cable (goes direct to battery) if power to both, starter u/s
if power at switch but not at small power feed at starter, relay/fuse fault, or if fitted cut out switch

When i turn the key to turn on only the lights and power work car


check the starter solenoid or the starter! You can run a jumper cable from the hot only on the battery to the starter and touch the hot bolt on the starter soleniod and if it dont turn over then the starter or soleniod is out. Put a bold into the end of the jumper cable so you can touch the starter easier!

2004 jetta does nothing when key turned


these motors suffer from dodgy starter contacts on the ignition switch,turn key and all lights on,push car and it starts ok but no starter motor.??these switches are dear as its a complete unit with steering lock,if this is the fault then fit an old fashioned push button switch on dash ---sorted.If you say epc light on then this is immobiliser ,try spare key if that dont work then its a dealer job to reset immobiliser unless someone knows how to by-pass it.Havent done one yet so i dont know how too,but i itching to get my diesel oil covered grimed in black hands on one to try and pit my wit against a four eyed nerd that invented the immobiliser system.
