My 2003 Jetta won't shut off.


Asked by Apr 24, 2013 at 03:20 PM about the 2003 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 2.0

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The key turns all the way to the off position but won't shut off. I tried replacing the wiring
module on the end of the ignition with a new unit and no change... I have tried turning the
module manually with it out of the cylinder and no change.. It appears that the problem is
somewhere other than at the ignition switch.

1 Answer
