Cannot get into the car - battery completely dead!

Asked by Aug 18, 2010 at 11:04 PM about the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My VW Jetta has been sitting for 3 weeks and the battery is completely dead. I cannot
even get into the car and open the hood. Any idea (other than towing it to a dealer)
what can be done to get the car started?

Thanks

Did you try the key in the door to open it??

yes and that does not work!

Call your nearest VW dealer and ask them. They should give you an answer, especially if you bought from them. I don't have another answer for you.

Can you get in the trunk? Call AAA? They will get in the car for you..
