Having problems with your 1993 Volkswagen Jetta ?
I had recently had my engin redone VW Jetta 3 CL 1993 model, and when i got it back it was working perfectly, starting fine. 2weeks about after one moring off to work the car started fine but on going home the afternoon the car would not start we had to kick start it. I took it back to the guy and asked what could be wrong as it started perfectly that morning but he immeadtly said it could be the battery. So i had a guy come to test it but im not sure if he was just trying to sell me a battery.
Hi Rozanne, It could be a bad connection on the main cable from the battery to the starter motor. I'll need some more details from you though. 1) When you crank the engine is there a clicking sound comming from under the hood? 2) What do you mean by 'short cutting' it. 3) Is the starter turning when you try it on the cars own battery? Can you let me know all the different symptoms the vehicle has from when it worked well and the difference between now and then. Regards Johngee
