STILL IN NEED OF HELP...

Asked by Feb 07, 2015 at 06:00 PM about the 2002 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok bout 2 month ago I had an issues where
I warmed up the car & jumped on the
highway. Bout 5 minutes into the ride, I
noticed some smoke coming out the
engine. I pulled over & turned off the
engine. Waited til the smoke cleared out &
noticed an antifreeze leak from the
connector where the temperature sensor is
located at. The car did not want to turn bk
on. So I took some advice & changed the
temperature sensor, also the connector &
the thermostat, still the car doesn't want to
turn on. Does anyone have any idea of what
may be wrong with it? Thank u for ur time &
advice.

What exactly do you mean "won't turn on"? Is the car cranking over the engine or do you turn the key and nothing happens at all?

It cranks but it won't turn on

Have you checked all of your fuses under the hood? Something may have gotten wet and shorted out. If fuses look good, you will have to determine if the car is getting spark and fuel. You may just have a bad fuel pump relay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvXOynOHywY

Fuel pump working & fuses under the hood r gd. Thatz why I don't understand why it won't turn on.

Did you check the fuses to the left of the steering wheel like in the video?

No we r unable to get to them. The car is in a small driveway & too much snow around it... not enough muscle to push the car.

have you tried unplugging the battery for 15 minutes to reboot the cars computer? in most cases where the car determines it should not be running the pc usually needs to be reset and cleared so if the garage did not do so this should work in getting the car started. Make sure you have your radio codes tho. be sure to disconnect both terminals and touch them together to do a proper reboot. it might also be a good idea if you have a code reader to scan the fault codes first.
