  1. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hoping theres some MK4 VW veterans that can help me out.. Specs: MK4 GTI 5-speed A/T engine 1.8t AWP Heres the gist: Car won't turn over on its own, but can be manually started with a 12v jump to the starter, so I was thinking maybe a bad ignition switch? However, the car also doesn't want to...

    Hey all, I have a 16v that is on its 3rd starter in the last few months while I've been restoring the car. It's never driven on the road. Here's the story: I put a new starter in and it starts right up. Then a month or so later it will suddenly die on me. No crank. Won't jump. Won't even spin...
  3. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I had to get a protective order against my husband to include the house and car (my name is on the title - 2000 Golf). He handed over the keys but now it won't start. He definitely did something to disable it, but probably not permanently. Any suggestions of simple things I can check myself...
  4. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hey guys, so on my 89’ mk2, i have replaced the starter, got it in properly, and replaced the ignition switch, yet it still won’t start. all of my fuses are good, i was wondering if it would be a problem with the red wire connected to the starter, maybe it got fried? i need all the help i can...
  5. Golf I & Jetta I
    I have a 1978 Rabbit Champagne edition that just does not like to start after sitting for a few hours. It'll turn over but it just can seem to actually start. It tries to start but won't continue. It is converted to a weber carb with an electric choke. When I bought it, about a week ago, it ran...
  6. Passat (B7)
    Hello Everyone, For at least a year my 13 Passat has been making a grinding sound right after the engine turns over. It happens at random and it doesn’t have to be cold out. The best way I can describe it is it sounds like when you try to turn the key on an older car while the engine is...
  7. Scirocco
    Hi all. Haven’t gotten this car running yet. Old starter was smoking so I assumed it was busted. Replace starter, bushing, battery cables and it STILL clicks and the connection on the positive solenoid terminal (upper) gets red hot and/or smokes. I’ve tried jumping it with mixed results. I can...
  8. Jetta/GLI VI
    My GLI was running fine, I have a unitonic stage 1+ tune with cts intake but that has nothing to do with my problem. One morning I went to go start the car and it took abnormally long to start up, engine turning over for 5 seconds maybe before firing up. It then was in limp mode all day with the...
  9. Jetta/GLI VI
    I have a MK6 GLI. When I turn the key, it just chugs but the engine will start if I pump the gas pedal a little. I left a battery tender on the car for a few hours and that made no difference starting it. Is it the battery or the starter?
