passat starter not working


Recommended Posts

I have a 1996 passat 1.8 4cyl petrol wich as developed an intermittant starting problem. At times when the key is turned to the start position the starter motor fails to turn (no clicking etc from the motor)This mostly happens after the car is warm, after a while (sometimes) the car will start ok. The key has a single button to trun on the light in the key fob I have changed the battery but the problem still happens help

Had this problem with an A4, basically the same car, it was the ignition barrel.

When the car refuses to turn over give the area by the key a few thumps and see if it starts.

If so changing the barrel is quite cheap £20, and easy but its a steering wheel off job.
