2009 Jetta 2.0T.. Never a problem and all of a sudden it just wont start and had to leave it at a restaurant tonight. Cranks over fine - battery Ok but just won't kick over. Any ideas as to what to check would be appreciated. I believe its out of warranty (over 36,000 miles).
anyway to take a test light and make sure theres power to the injectors?
also.. if its turning over.. does it try to fire? usually u can hear if its trying..
could also be a spark issue too / ignition..
any mods done? stock? etc? anymore details you can give would be great.
hmm your in the pittsburgh area..
send a private message to fubardub.. hes a moderator here from pittsburgh too.. maybe he can help you out? or look at it.. or something? worth a shot..
Went back to try it again and still no go - it cranks and cranks but won't start !! Doesn't even try to fire. There are no mods or anything - totally stock. It also has 36,500 miles - just out of warranty -
is the check engine light on? if so do you have a scanner to pull a code?? it definately sounds fuel related.. when your cranking cranking cranking.. does it start to smell rich.. like fuel.. ? if so.. your getting fuel and it would be a spark issue.
do you know how to check to make sure you have spark?
pull the spark plug out .. touch it to the valve cover or a screw driver.. have someone BUMP the key to start it.. dont hold it on. just Bump.. off right away. all you need to see is that theres a spark from the electrode.
sucks but i have no knoweledge of the 2.0t. jump on vortex and go to the pittsburgh thread. there are some guys that have vag-com and could probably help you out. i wonder if it could be the ignition switch. frozen gas line? can you hear the pump turn on at all?
fuel pump fuse keeps popping.. theres a short somewhere.... im trying to think of the wiring system on the 2.0t as far as the fuel pump.. i believe theres a ground / plug by the tank.. right by the fuel filter.. (in tank pump) but i believe the plug / wiring your accesible to without dropping the tank..
OK - it was the fuel pump control module and not the fuel pump - had to have it towed in and the replacement was done under warranty even though I am just over 36K miles. Where is this module and has anyone had this trouble before ??
