I just purchased a 2012 VW Jetta Sel Battery
drained replace with new Battery Alarm and
wipers comes on won't stop.
Am looking for an answer
the same question, need help...?
let me tell you what happened, the battery was installed in reverse. My battery cables were red negative and black positive so be very careful on new models of VW, from 2012.
Recently had this issue (2012 Jetta SE). As Paul said, the battery was indeed installed backwards. The red (brown) battery terminal cable is indeed NOT the positive. I spun the battery and reconnected, and all (well most) was fine. I'm still having door lock/trunk issues.
