Thumbs up This works!

Thank you for the video and for sharing your method! I disassembled the ignition button, used a small white eraser on a mechanical pencil to clean the gold contacts and the small blue, metal-flecked pads on the adjoined plastic part. I erased all four sets a couple of times and saw dark residue on the eraser, cleaning the eraser in between by rubbing it on my pant leg (clean paper works too). Reassembled, used several times and it works perfectly.



This was a quick, free fix with only a few tools (mini screwdrivers, mechanical pencil) and fixed a super annoying problem and saved $100+ on a replacement part.

My 2015 Jetta TDI Comfort Line has the push start bottom on the center console.
Once in awhile it reads on the center dash NO IGNITION and have to hit start bottom again.
I assume the same problem.
Guess I will have to do your fix.
Removing from my center console looks to be a might bit harder for removal compared to steering column.
Thankyou for your fix

Unfortunately, I have no experience with removing the center console button. My brother had a Passat with a center console button that I was intending on repairing and documenting when the time came. Sadly, the vehicle was totaled before that.

Please let us know how things go. Good luck and I hope you're able to repair it with ease.

So the console buttons are more problematic than the steering column ones?

6 years later, this youtube video helped me fix my 81K 2014 JSW. My pushbutton start has been 'balky' the last 8K miles. I thought I'd fix it before it left me stranded. I used the plastic eraser that you put on the end of a pencil to clean the gold only. Thanks again everyone!

Just more involved in removing the button. More trim pieces must be removed. Iím sure it isnít a terrible job, itís just not as easy as the steering column mounted button.
