I have a 2001 VW Jetta with VR6 engine. I removed front bumper to replace headlights, removed HID lights and installed regular lights. Now starts and kills no comm with any computers.
I would double check all the wiring, also I believe that year had drl's ( daytime running lights ) if these are not installed properly it could be sending and error code to the computer causing the start no run.
