2004 vw jetta won't start and the malfunction light is on. This has happened and we tak it to the shop, they can;t find the problem and then the Jetta starts up. It may be months, weeks of a few days and...
I know that some european cars have an "immobilizer" as part of their anti-theft system that frequently malfunctions in this way. Have it swapped out if your car has such a module.An independent shop may be better for this.There's a relay called "Relay 109" that may cause this also-it's only in Jetta TDIs.Here is part of a post from a dissatisfied owner if you continue having problems:I had TWO of these bought back by Yugowagen and you can do the same-WITHOUT an attorney!! I had the 2 cars for six months and over 12K miles total and was not charged a dime for use!! They gave me the cash I paid in, the value of my trade, and the amount of the payments made, and paid off the loan balance!! Hopefully this number is still good- I've posted it several times on this site and it might have been changed. Contact Jason Tosetti at VWOA at (248) 754-3787. His FAX number is (248) 754-6504. Jason is the VW drone that handled my cases. Also, another dissatisfied VW owner had posted the number of another VW exec somewhere on this site. And yes, the Volvo V40 has been FANTASTIC!! If the S40 sedan and V40 wagon still have the $4K incentive you can get a killer deal!! My car stickered for $29,385 and I got it for $23,500 !! And the car is a much more refined vehicle than the Yugowagen! Good luck!! And, by the way, VW DOES offer loaner cars-the dealer must call the district office to get it authorized which is no problem. I had 5 loaners during my 6 month nightmare.
