Electronic immobilizer my vw jetta wont start and the electronic immobilizer light is flashing but it starts then just turns off. I have a 2000 VW Jetta. Suddenly after 9 years my car ignition does not recognize the key and the electronic immobilizer light comes on. I have not had any work done on the car in recent months and have not had battery replaced, etc. For now, I can wait a few minutes and try again and the car will start.
Most likely cause is the gauge cluster, this will have to be tested and service by your local dealership because the dash cluster and keys have to be coded. I have seen the immobilizer loose it's coding for apearantly no reason. therefore have them r ... 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Electrical Problem While driving the check engine light will come on (not blink). Then I can see the the temperature gauge starts to oscillate ( as if the voltage to the gauge is changing). Next the gauge needle goes off ( complete cold) as if voltage to the temperature gauge is gone and the Service 4WD and Electronic Control Throttle lights come on. The car starts to run rough.

The car is still experincing a electronic problem. Every gauge is flucuating at idle and stopping. Someone did come up with one code that showed on diagnostic B2159 memory #1 output short to ground. When the problem starts a wire shorting sound comes throught the right passenger side the abs and emergency brake lights flash on and off then the temp,speedometer and gas gauge flucuate all at once. Then car acts like it wants to stall. The make of the car is Ford,model Focus, year 2000. With 167,00

My 2000 Buick LeSaber turns but doesn't start, and the battery is completely dead. It seems it might be a short or a broken fuse. The way the Buick made this car the battery is in the back seat and the connection cables are where the battery normally is in the engine compartment. When I try to jump start from the terminals in the front, the car doesn't even respond. However, when I connect directly to the battery, all the electronic components come on and the engine turns, but won't start. What

I have a 1998 Dodge Avenger that just started having this problem, and I'm not sure what to do to fix it. The blower on the heater/ac, the mirror lights, the electronic door locks, and the rear defroster...and maybe more accessories that I haven't noticed yet......only work intermittently. They don't work when I first start the car, and I'll be driving for awhile before they will all come on, and they will stay on until I turn the car off and let it get cold. Then it happens again.

Car is shaking when driving. feels like it could stall at any minute. Starting to get a very nasy smell coming from engine and underneath. Took it to a mechanic who did a diagnotic check. Mentioned a fuel lelvel sensor cicuit and also transmission slippage. documented that he wasn't sure if slippage was internal or electronic. Won't drive the car over 40 due to the skaing. Any help would be appreciated.
The problem is in the transmission. The smell you have is the transmission fluid burning and you need to get this serviced and repaired as soon as possible. At this point your problem is either in teh clutch assembly or the torque converter. The ba ... 2006 Saturn Vue
There was a sound like a fan running after the engine was turned off or when I bring the vehicle to a stop. It was very loud. The emmisions warning came on and the vehicle was still drivable. Now the car won't start at all and the EPC warning light comes on. I only have a French owners manual because the previous owner was french speaking. I believe this may mean the electronic start but not sure. Just wondering if any of this could have anything to do with the recall re the heat sheild issue.

1990 nissan 300zx won't start. It is a manual so I jumped it from second and it started up, but after running for a lil bit it shut off and was sputtering while accelerating. What is the problem? If I could jump it from 2nd gear then its not the starter right? Also the oil is real low, is there a sensor that shuts the car off? And one more thing, when I put the keys in the ignition now, none of the electronics come on. So when I jumped it, and drove it shouldn't that of charged the battery? I'm

I have a 2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited AWD. I have a problem starting the car. It may crank for 5 seconds before half-starting...it will idle rough at ~500 RPMs for a couple of seconds and may stall, or it may idle normally. It depends on it's mood. I had it in for service, and they said the Electronic Throttle Body was malfunctioning. The throttle body was replaced with the new part, and the PCM was flashed. $500 later, it's no better. The check engine light has never come on. I'm stum
