  1. Tiguan (MQB)
    I replaced the original battery on 08/13/22 with a new Odyssey AGM battery after having "bad battery" symptoms. Last week, I upgraded my fog lights with a plug-and-play HID kit, which I really like. This week, my battery has been discharging fairly quickly and have to charge it off the car once...

  3. Golf/GTI VII
    Hi all, So my Golf would not start a couple of months ago after I did not use it for 2 weeks. In a panic I called AAA and they installed a new non-VW battery. 2 months later, the same thing happens and this time I get a jump and take it to the VW dealer who tells me that I need a VW Battery to...
  4. Golf V & Jetta V
    My ignition got locked out so I replaced my ignition lock cylinder. I had to press the neutral override switch so move the car as it was in a bad spot to be towed. The battery was unplugged 2-3 times to lock and unlock doors. I unplugged the battery during the replacement as I was taking the...

    This is for the captive nut plate under the battery hold down. Thanks!
  6. Phaeton
    So, I need yet another AGM battery. Admittedly I don't drive the car ever. Honestly was too afraid of breaking down, although it never actually left me stranded. Scary issue with the alternator and now the windshield wipers don't work and I just don't want to get caught in the rain until I fix...
  7. The Beetle
    Good afternoon all! My wife has a 2013.5 VW Beetle Turbo (VIN lists it as R-Line) with the 2.0 TSI EA888 motor. Sunday I went to run out to the store and her car would not turn over at all. I put the battery on my Noco charger and let it charge through the day and unhooked it last night...

    The battery light in my 2009 GTI came on today when I was in first gear going slow in a parking lot. I lost power steering and couldn't drive it but the engine was still running. Upon restarting the car the battery light went off and everything worked like normal. This happened once a few months...

    I recently bought a new battery for my VR6 that has been sitting for 3.5 years, put it in and turned the key to on and there is literally no sign of life. Nothing comes up on the dash, no noise or anything. I thought maybe it could be a fuse but I'm not sure which fuse I would even check. I just...

    Took my battery out this weekend to install ECS’s Master Cylinder Brace and found the factory battery has been leaking. Acid in the tray, corroded hold down bolts (thankfully replacements in the ECS kit), and had even splashed on the master cylinder. I checked the battery case and could not...
  11. Phaeton
    Hi, my phaeton has probably run out. the battery is charged but since then I can't start the car, the key doesn't work, the windows, the central, only the radio turns on. VCDS shows error 00003 defect. I sent Kessy in for repairs, but its OK. where could be the problem? sorry for my English.
  12. Golf V & Jetta V
    I live in CT and I need a new battery for my Jetta 2009 SE, I was going to get a H7 since I assume they hold the most power out of the ones that fit. What is your recommendations with batteries, keep in mind I live in a colder weather. I wasn't sure if sticking with a big brand like Duralast or...
  13. Golf/GTI VI
    Hey all, new to the forum, and recently became an owner of a 2013 GTI (DSG, 2.0T) I bought it used around ~126k miles. The check engine light recently came on and I checked code: p02099 I think…turbo under boost. I live kinda close to an NGP racing so they are gonna check it out but they are...
  14. Golf SportWagen VII
    A couple of days ago I was skiing all day. I was away from my car for eight hours, and when I came back, I couldn't get the car to unlock with the fob. The car display has never given me a warning that the fob had a low battery. The temps were warm by winter standards, around 40°F (4°C) all day...
  15. Phaeton
    Hello all! I have dead battery on my phaeton, no lights, all dark... can open only with key. How to open trunk if there is no electricity? Saw that connectors not recommended to use to get electricity IN.

    Hi All, Happy New year, I'm looking to buy a replacement battery for my 2014 Jetta SE for when I need it. The battery is original from 2014 and still works perfect, but I figure its more than living on borrowed time. I figured I would buy a similar OEM battery from the dealer given that their...
  17. Jetta VII
    2019 GLI - noticed that the LED on remote fob was not lighting when I pressed a button, and then saw the "Replace Key Battery" on the MFD - so I replaced the battery with a new CR2032. Fob still works (it still worked before, too), and the LED lights, but I still occasionally get the "Replace...
  18. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi, everyone Does anybody knows if after a replacement of the battery on a mk4 1.8T 2003, a software intervention is required, obligatory using a VCDS(VAG COM) ? Or you can just simply put a new battery without worries ? In addition I can say that the battery that I want to install has better...
