2003 Eurovan is dead, no electronics, no start

10

Asked by Mar 13, 2011 at 07:17 PM about the 2003 Volkswagen EuroVan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2003 Eurovan is completely dead. All electronics are non-functional...lights,
instruments including the clock, radio, even the remote key won't work. The van
won't start and makes no noise at all when trying. I cleaned the battery terminals
and checked the fuses under the dash associated with engine electronics, and
checked the three fuses in the fuse compartment directly in front of the battery.
The battery tested at around 9V with my voltmeter. The van operated fine
yesterday, and has given no indication that the battery might be weak. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Just had the same issue with my 2001 Eurovan today! Did you find out the problem?

It was the battery. Despite the 9V it was putting out, the electronics require the full 12V+. My battery was an 85 month battery that was just over two years old which is why I was hesitant to think it could be the cause. Another Eurovan owner said that some of the electronics are constantly drawing power even when the van is off, and he suggested purchasing a trickle charger to counteract the constant drain.
