When I looked at mine with 126K miles just to see if it needed an intake cleaning, I noticed the shutter valve was hung half way closed with massive carbon build up. The car was parked there for only two hours. The best way to keep on top of mechanical and electrical problems is to keep up with regular maintenance. The reason you don't have power to the glow plugs is probably because it isn't cold enough to need them. I only have 8800 miles on the car at this point in time, the first time was about two weeks ago and the dealer can't seem to find anything wrong with it.
I know there's gas, as you can smell it. Within the last month I had new fuel pump, fuel filter, tune up and new coil pack tonight I drove to the store in a rain storm came out of the store and the car will not turn over. I believe I had the coolant temp sensor disconnected at that point, and when I checked the power side of the 4 pin connector with a test light, I got nothing. A couple years back, when the car was under warranty, the glow plug harness was replaced. Also, since putting the new starter in the horn no longer honks while setting the alarm. So what relay powers the glow plugs? So I was wondering if you guys can give me an idea on what it could be? The immobilizer light had come on and stayed flashing. But there is a wire from the battery box to the starter that has wear spots where it rubbed against the frame.
I have the 4-wire version. When I turn the key, the engine does nothing; it does not crank. Before you take it to be checked, make sure it is fully charged; otherwise, it will fail the test. If you feel the spring loaded rod at the intake manifold, it should spring open if you press it closed. The battery was dead partially because I drained it while trying to start it , but when I jumped it, the car started right up and ran fine. I can do that on Cylinders 1 and 4 because the intake manifold can remain on. Spark plugs The gasoline engine is a complex beast, but the premise is simple: you need a smart to ignite the fuel.
I started having this problem last spring, and at that point, I checked the resistance on all of the glow plugs, and they were fine. Heck, I just licked the spark plug to see if it tasted sweet. Hmmmm I wonder if bad headgasket. I am still just looking for basic info about the relay. If you push on the fuse box underneath the steering column, the dash lights up and the car will then start.
It took about five minutes and then started and ran fine, it did this about four times over a months time. It will start and run normal, I will go into the store, come out and it will not start. I did peel back the timing cover to look at the belt itself. Im trying to figure out the reason why my wife's 2003 Jetta wont start. Just with any machinery, there are many things that can go wrong with your car. The spark plugs had been in there for 145,000 miles and showed it.
Once you know fuel is not an issue move on to something else. I came out and the car would fire for a split second then would only crank, each time. The interval on that belt is 50,000-60,000. People replace glow plugs, glow plug harness, glow plug relay, the battery, install a coolant heater, oil pan heater, battery warmer, 0-w30 oil, you name it and they needed was a timing adjustment. The edges looked a bit frayed, but not as dodgey as some I've seen. I scanned it, there are no fault codes.
It sounds like the car is ranning on limp mode. Should I change the ignition switch barrel thanks for your help in advance Hi, I have an 07 Beetle, and yesterday on my way home from work, it seemed as though I ran out of power steering fluid. The best indicator of a failing starter are the headlights, which will dim when you turn your car on. Im having a problem and I don't really know what it is and what is causing it. Anybody have a Bentley manual with a wiring diagram to confirm that the glow plug circuit runs off the 109 relay? So, I went to fill it, but there was plenty in there-I topped it off anyway. I wouldn't be too worried about that transmission code yet. It is possible there is a leak in the brake servo assist system, which reduces the vacuum, so you are not getting sufficient mechanical assistance when applying the brakes.

Disillusioned, Hinoki It sounds possible that there is a mechanical problem with the engine. Help my teenager needs this car to run. The problem will be with the brake servo assist. Is this the same relay that powers the glow plugs? Maybe not enough to hydrolock a cylinder, but enough to make it run bad, also maybe related to the P2181 code. I put the injector cleaner in and drove about 20 miles, car ran great.
