How do i hook up a push button starter switch to a volkswagon jetta

Check out step six here: http://faculty.ccp.edu/faculty/dreed/Campingart/jettatech/nocrankdiag/index.htm Instead of the short wire between terminals, you will unplug the top plug and run a wire from both terminals to a momentary or non-latching switch (button) that you mount to one of your blank button close out panels below the radio. You still have to put the key in and turn to on position, then use the push button switch to start. I have been using this since my key ignition switch went out.

Cost to fix oil leak from a multi clutch cover

The only place you can get a price is from a repair shop. Find a shop that does a lot of VW work.

I have a 2006 ford f150 King Ranch truck. The ac

Very likely a connection. is the ac control switch on the driver door? Has a wire rubbed through its outer casing against something & grounding ? If it was a blown fuse I don’t believe it woul function at all

98 volkswagen jetta will not fire

Hello, Fuel - Spark - Compression If you have a book there are testing practices within the book for 'priming the fuel system', using a volt-meter (ohms) to check the coil (in tolerance - tolerance specs), and compression testing. With that said a dirty TPS sensor could also be a cause - bypass the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) by holding down the gas pedal to the floor and starting the vehicle. If the vechile starts get some electrical cleaning spray and clean the TPS electrical connection and chase it with compressed air (quick-dry -- compressed air works as a cleaning aid too). Could also be a main computer problem if you have had 'different' problems occuring with the vehicle (stalling, black smoke, won't start, etc.) I hope this helps

1998 vw jetta tdi did not shut off

The air plate is not shutting off the air to the intake manifold or you are getting oil into the intake. Check the flap on the end of the intake where the black boot connects to it. You could have a vacuum leak or electronic issue not sur with out looking at it.

98 jetta wolfsburg. Clip

It has a plastic Ratchet style gear at the pedal end of the cable that has to be released. This gear automatically adjust the clutch when the pedal is pressed. Never put a jack against a clutch arm. You will probably have to disengage the cable to reset the ratchet gear. Don't strip the teeth on the gear
