TDI(s): 2003 Jetta
Default Forgive me

Hi there, I don't know if this is the correct method of finding answers or suggestions but I recently bought a 2003 Jetta TDI. the drivers side electronics don't seem to work. I retrieved two entire doors from the scrap yard and dismantled them to get the harnesses out along with the actuators. when I disconnected mine down near the hood release inside the vehicle and plugged the new ones in, one of them worked exactly as the one which was on my car originally. This is that all three other windows worked and three locks worked. No window. With that same harness I plugged in from one of the salvage door, I tried with the window motor from the other salvage door. when I plugged in the window motor nothing worked at all. So now I am left with my door with all the parts it came with which only allows three of the four windows and locks to work excluding the driver side. I also have a harness from a salvage vehicle which provided all the same functions as my original harness.... while using the salvage harness and window motor, with the window motor out in the open, I can hear clicking(electrical or mechanical I'm unsure) coming from the window motor. the window crank does not spin.
if any of this explanation makes sense to anyone or if anyone has any suggestions on what I should replace or try next I would love to hear anything.
(a lot of "any" in the sentence)
thank you for your help and I apologize if this is not how this tread is used..

clearly I don't know what I'm doing...

I also tried to change the fuel filter and it seemed pretty straight forward but after doing it and priming it a bit the car started and 10 seconds later it choked out. in guessing air or the small possibility of the fuel sender under the seat?

any suggestions on that?

thank you!

Go to this part of the forum. Since you have an 03, you have the MK4 platform.


On the left side is a button entitled new thread. Click it. Make a brief title for your thread that describes your problem(s).

Divide your questions or descriptions into short paragraphs. With spaces between them, it's easier reading. Welcome to the forum.

Check your window switch itself and the wiring where it goes from the door to the car body.

Bleed that fuel system and make sure the O rings that are in the top of the filter are installed correctly and not pinched, and make sure you didn't crack that T that the O rings are mounted to.

Default White smoke no power

Hey guys new here. I just bought a tdi so bare with me I no diesels from my 7.3s and cuminnis. But I was driving home and I lost my turbo seals I put the new one on and drained the intercooler. But I'm still getting this white smoke with no power. But if I lug it out long enough the rmps will start to go up but won't go over 2700. And the doctors so really bad anyone out there know a tip. Oh the smoke smells like diesel I'm thinking injection pump over Pressureing

Wrong way to post. Start your own thread here:
