REPLACE THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE.BESURE TO BUY SOME FLEXIBLE WIRE CONDUIT.PROTECT WIRE FROM RUBBING CAUSING SHORT.ALSO REPLACE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.DUE TO YOUR CAR BEING PCM CONTROL BY DISCONNECTING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE WILL CAUSE STARTING PROBLEMS AND STEERING PROBLEMS WITH NEWER CARS WITH ELECTRIC POWER STEERING.LET VOLKSWAGON DEALER REPLACE CABLES AND STARTER.

My 1998 dodge stratus wont start when i turn the key and their is a burnt wire smell and the wire is from the starter to a cilinode ? I think not sure do i have to replace the wire or the hole starter


Replace the starter. Starter is bound up and is drawing a lot of amps thus causing the burnt wire smell and wire to be hot.
This is a good video to help you diagnose the starter.

I have a 92 mustang 5.0 and my starter relay fuse blew, where is it on the car I can't find it?


Here's the link to the starter relay.Here's another link to your wiring diagram,you have 4 fusible links at top of page,they all are coming from the positive battery cable,check them for burtness or swollen wires,replace with same gauge wire.To see if the starter link is burnt,get meter and put positive on positive battery cable at starter and ground black wire and have someone turn key,should say 12 volts or better.

1998 vw jetta gl if key is turned to the start position there should be a wire energized for starter (starter relay) right?


Yes, but don't get starter "solenoid" confused with starter "relay". The circuit should go from the starter switch to the fuse box, to the relay. Then the circuit will either go to the start solenoid or a secondary, larger relay. I am not certain about VW, but many manufacturers are using two switching relays in order to "step up" the load capacity. This is so the actual key-switch only has to control a tiny load, which makes it last longer.
If you do not have an open fuse link, it is time to find a wiring diagram. In my experience, I have always found that if one calls the service manager at the dealership, he/she is happy to provide a photocopy of a wiring diagram. The diagram will make it clear if there is one or two switching relays, and even what color the wires are and so on.
I hope this is helpful. Good luck.

My 2006 jetta blinkers, high beams, and windshield wipers are all out all of a sudden... I was thinking maybe a fuse but my owners manual is MIA... Ideas?


if there is no fuse diagram on the fuse box cover you are gonna have to take them out 1 by 1 and check them, make sure the small pieceof wire in the fuse is not broken or burnt, a pair of cosmetic tweezers works great for pullin these little boogers out, probably a 20 amp fuse, good luck!!

1996 VW jetta will not start


You vehicle works off a standard ignition key which links to a electrical ignition switch. The wire from the switch goes to the starter solenoid. That wire has a fusable link which operates like a fuse. If to many amps surge through this wire it will melt down inside the insulation. The insulation will not melt away causing a headache to most novice mechcanics. Pull on the solenoid wire a few inches away from the solenoid and see if it stretches at least 1/8 of an inch or more. If it does it has an open stopping the continuity to the positive lug to the solenoid preventing it to work. Any auto parts store sells these fusable links. The counterperson will suggest the crimping supplies and tools needed to purchase for this repair

I have a 92 chevy wagon and stopped to get gas turned the car off and went to start it and all it does is click one time. tried to jump it and didnt work. tried to tap starter and didnt work.


Check for a burnt fuse link Not the fuese but a fuse link, look at the positive cable going to the battery. Sholud be other wires hooked in the rubber end cap. These other wires are fuse links. feel them for a break or use a test light and probe them for power, repair the one thats burnt.

Can't find starter wire in 1992 GMC Safari Van


dose you truck have a coded key? (a chip in it?) if it does, your out of luck, the wire is ground switched and will not show anything on the volt meter. Instead, find the small wire from the starter and use that to make your connection
