    03 Jetta ALH - Engine no start problem

    JET, yes I had all connections cleaned up and greased with di-electric grease. Turns out the problem was the single wire lead to the starter solenoid. It had work hardened and cracked right at the connector, under the bright green grommet that inserts into the end of the connector. Cleaned...

    Yup, they'll do inspections for ya. I haven't had to have any repairs yet, but I hear they are very fair also...ie they won't take you to the cleaners for repairs you really don't need. Good luck.
