Having problems with your 1997 Volkswagen Jetta ?
When i turn the ignition on the electrics all cut out and reset to zero starter clicks
You have a voltage drop when you are engaging the starter,so i would check the battery voltage with a multimeter before you engage the starter and while you are engaging the starter.if there is not a significant drop in voltage,i would check the battery terminals,leads and the operation of the starter by giving the small terminal on the starter a live feed direct from the battery.
Check the condition of the battery. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them test the battery, alternator, and starter. Most stores will perform these checks at no charge. They can also scan the engine computer for fault codes that can narrow down the search for solution. Hope this helped.
