Security light is flashing... Why?

Asked by Jan 12, 2016 at 11:29 AM about the 2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Jetta, and about a week ago I went to start it and the battery
was dead, so I jumped it, but then it would immidiatley stall. I hooked it back
up and let it run for a while hooked up to the other car, and connected it to a
computer. I unhooked the jumper cables and it was fine. I drove it for about
a week without a problem, but then today went to start it and the battery
acted as if it was dead. I pressed on the gas and it started right up, but then
the security light was back on and flashing. Any suggestions?

You just might have a weak battery. What is the voltage? how old?
