My VW TDI Won't Start

Volkswagen is a car manufacturer mostly known for its Beetle and Bus models from the 1960s. In recent years, it also has manufactured other popular models such as the Golf, Jetta, Passat and several TDI models. If you are the owner of a VW TDI and are unable to start your car, there are a few ways to diagnose your problem before bringing your VW TDI to a mechanic.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Jump leads

Instructions

1 Check the battery terminal connections. Open the bonnet of your VW TDI, and look at the terminal connections. The terminal connections are the red and black cables that connect to the positive and negative ends of your car battery. If your terminal connections are loose or corroded, reattach the terminal connections.

2 Jump start your battery. If your car won't start, your battery might simply need a jump start to get some power back in its system. To jump start your car, you need another car and a set of jump leads. Before connecting the jump leads, make sure the red and black ends do not cross while you are using them. Connect one set of the red and black ends of the jump lead to the second car's battery while it is running, and the connect the other end of the jump lead to the red and black connections on your VW TDI's battery. After a few minutes, your VW TDI should have enough juice in the battery to start. Turn over the ignition; if your car still won't start, your battery is likely dead.

3 Replace the starter. If your battery connections are secure and you have tried jump-starting your car, you might need to replace the starter. The starter helps turn over the engine to get it running. If your starter is broken, you will either hear a clicking noise or no noise at all when you try to turn your car over. If this is the case, replace the starter.
