The ignition control relay has been replaced, as well as new distributor cap, plugs and wires. After relay replaced it worked for 2 weeks then nothing. The car when it runs, runs well and smooth. Some wires have been checked and cleaned. I'm at a loss. Anyone have any other ideas. The obvious grounds have been checked and cleaned. Any hidden gremlins that anyone else knows about?

I bought a 1999 VW Jetta for my son yesterday. He pushed the dangling trunk light back up into the trunk and immediately the bulb went out, the windows wouldn't roll down, the trunk would not open back up and the car wouldn't start. We found a blown fuse, replaced that, and after some issues with the alarm it finally started. Now when he turns on his headlights the trunk pops open. The widows still will not roll down, and the speedometer doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated...Thanks
flasher doesn't flash just has constant light on
Just replaced the alternator and battery. Finally got the car started and ran the car and after an hour, the car cuts off and the battery is dead. Could it be the ground for the battery?
changed fuel filter now i can't get it to start how do i fix this problem
My jetta is having problems starting, we replaced the started twice with a used one, and still didn't turn over. Its making a very loud sound. So we talked to a mechanic and he told us to buy a brand new starter, put that in, only turns over a couple times, then makes the loud sound again. Very annoyed. Thinking its the flywheel but dont want to replace it if that might not be the issue, got quoted over $500 to replace :(
Can someone give me some advice! maybe i dont need to replace the flywheel?
i need to remove it to replace it and i can't figure out how to get it off... i can't get past the steering wheel and the allen nut on the bottom... do i need to remove the signal switch??
