A couple of weeks ago when I tried to start
my car the engine turned over real slow,
I stopped and waited about thirty seconds
and it turned over and started. The next
day I had the battery check and it was ok
this has been going on and off, yesterday
I went it start the car it turned over real slow
again I stop and waited for about a minute
and when I turned the key to start the car
nothing happened I tried to jump the
car and still nothing happened, what does
anyone know what my problem is?

Forum Rules and Guidelines

This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

Thread moved to the correct section as OP doesn't know where to post for technical problems.

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

Most likely the starter. had the same problem, real slow turnover on mine (and never received a code or anything from VCDS). Tried taking starter apart, cleaning and greasing. Did not help. Bought a replacement and all is well. Never got to the not turning over state but I am sure it was coming. Starter's an easy part to get to. I have read slowing turn rate is the common failure process of Bosch starters.
