Asked by Dec 30, 2013 at 01:43 PM about the 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS Wolfsburg Edition

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when I turn the key on. There's a yellow light with a car and key flashing on the dashboard. I'm thinking maybe there's a problem with the security system. It cranked it a moves it then the next day my battery was dead.. I tried to jump it then I had the problem as I explained in the beginning of my question. Any suggestions?
