300 Auto - Starting Problem


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 97 TDi 300 Auto.

Won't start, or turn over, it's like the battery is flat.

The battery is fully charged, everything works and I've tested the output.

Starter motor isn't jammed.

I have had over the last few months an occasional issue when I turn the key, nothing happens for a second or two, then she kicks up no problem.

It's like the gear lever is in "Drive", but it's definately in "Park".

Any idea's ?

Could it be the Immobilizer ?

Cheers Mitch

If you get a 'delayed action' on turning the key it is most likely the spider. In your case you get 'no action' so I would put my money on the spider. There are good posts on this forum for fixing that insect.

Sorry, didn't read the previous post properly. I must say it isn't usually the fob battery. Worth remembering, that.
