2004 Jetta wont start


Asked by Aug 26, 2016 at 04:53 PM about the 2004 Volkswagen Jetta GL 2.0l

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Not sure whats up, never had such a problem. Car started a few months ago.
Wont turn over at all, when put in neutral and attempting to push starting car
will not move as if brakes are seized. Could it possibly be anti-theft engaged?

does the key you r using have a chip? does it click when you turn the key to the start position? how old is the battery


Yes it has a chip, it does click and the battery has just been changed recently with the correct battery.


take the starter off and to a parts house and get it bench tested. if it hasn't been driven for a while with the emergency brake on they might be stuck
