problem #4

May 132015

Jetta SE 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


radio/bluetooth died, eventually lead to draining battery

Radio died. Thought nothing of it, would replace later. Then the car wouldn't start, battery was dead. Didn't leave any systems on. Took it in for a "recall" on a different fuse, replaced battery and thought all would be ok. Parked car for 2 weeks while on vacation, came back car was COMPLETELY DEAD. Almost bought a $280 alternator. Kept reading of this issue online (seems like a humongous problem), and read what others wrote. I have removed the radio and this for the moment has seemed to solve any issues I have had with the battery. Plan on replacing the radio. Removing the radio is SIMPLE. Get a plastic tool to remove panels (auto parts stores have them), removed a total of 9 screws (need to have a T20 Torx screw. NOT PHILLIPS OR FLATHEAD). All the wires are harnessed and simple connections to remove.

Jetta Wolfsburg Edition 2.0liter_f.I._turbo

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,000 miles

I came out of work to face a dead battery. This time Volkswagon was called and a diagnostic test was scheduled for the 23 of July. this test was done at my expense. the charge was $86.00 per hour. The technician stated they detected I had a dead battery 3 times. No kidding. I knew that. what is causing my problem? I did not need to spend a $100. to be told this. I was told to take the car home and that was that.

This incident was fairly insignifigant at the time. In the future it will prove to be quite foretelling.
