Battery Dead problems of the 2002 Volkswagen Jetta



Two problems related to battery dead have been reported for the 2002 Volkswagen Jetta.

car   Battery Dead problem 1
Failure Date: 09/01/2010

My 2002 vw Jetta tdi has many electrical problems. The one that might be a safety factor is the micro switches in the door latches. The doors with faulty switches don't know if there open or closed. When open the safety light on the door does not come on to alert oncoming vehicles that a door is open. If the switch stays on when the door is closed, the dome lights stay on until the battery is dead. The car dies in the freeway when running, it might be affecting the computer now. This has to be recall its a safety issue.

car   Battery Dead problem 2

Since the part(s) for this repair are expensive, I feel that vw should recall all vehicles to replace the switches and door latches. Mel moir.
