Asked by Nov 23, 2011 at 06:10 PM about the 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This may sound stupid but trust me on this: Disconnect BOTH battery cables, and touch the cable ends together. That will ground out the computers and do a full reset. Reconnect the cables and try to start the car.
