2007 Starting problems

2 posts in this topic

Got a 2007 passat and over the last few weeks I am getting trouble starting the car first time,

 

Sometimes i push fob in and it starts first time.

Other times i get ignition on and nothing else. Then have to remove key a few times and try again.

Today car started but then said something like 'engine fault call garage' and then cut out. Then started up fine after.

Seems to be happening more and more now.

 

Not got any other faults or symbols on the dash.

 

Also am i starting the car properly? I assume push fob straight in and it should start? I have tried pushing it in half way so ignition comes on but that does not always work.

 

I hope its not related to the steering rack issue? If so any ideas on cost of getting it fixed? Thanks

I know this car won't start if the clutch isn't pressed. Assuming you are pressing the clutch - perhaps a sensor/switch related to that?
