Volkswagen Jetta owners have reported 340 problems related to electrical system (under the electrical system category).
I was stopped at a solid red traffic light and when I got the green light to proceed straight across the intersection I began to accelerate. Halfway through the intersection another vehicle (vehicle #2) crossed my path of travel on the right hand passenger side and vehicle #2 driver's side crashed into my front end. My vehicle was spun around counter clockwise due to the impact of vehicle #2. As a result of this crash my vehicle sustained heavy front end damage and pieces and parts were strewn all over the road. Fluid was leaking out of my vehicle and the vehicle was not able to be operated post-collision. With the heavy front end damage the driver, passenger and side airbags in my vehicle did not deploy.

Transmission kicked into neutral while cruising on highway. Had to pull over and come to a complete stop and restart the car before it would allow me to shift back into drive. The fault recurred a few miles later and has recurred several times since then. The car is now too unsafe to drive.

Radio is dead including bluetooth and hands free driving. All fuses are okay, fuse box was replaced under the recall.
Driving up to park my 2010 vw Jetta wagen tdi curbside in front of my house, I heard a loud "pop" emit from somewhere near the instrument panel and the touch-screen radio in my vehicle went completely black. The radio supplies the vehicle's blue-tooth capability to allow drivers to communicate emergencies, and those calls must be done hands-free (I. E. Over blue tooth or similar system), as required by law in California. Since this incident the radio (and speaker system) in the vehicle has been non-functional. I asked my local vw dealer if there were any outstanding recalls on this vehicle. They informed me there were none, but the radio spontaneously dying, particularly in this model year, has been a common complaint of vw owners. This is made clear by the many, many postings on various web boards. Factory installed defects in radios that prevent drivers from communicating emergency needs while on the road, and also prevent drivers from receiving emergency notifications over public broadcast channels while driving is a serious safety concern that must be addressed and remedied by the manufacturer immediately.
Faulty fuse panel in engine compartment (the one situated on top of the battery, not the panel in the cabin).

I took my Jetta to get an oil change and the mechanic went to move my car in the bay and could not get it turned off. I had to have it moved to a Volkswagen dealer to what I thought was a faulty ignition and Volkswagen said a bad steering lock.

Both exhaust pressure sensors malfunctioned causing vehicle indicator lamp to illuminate and faild emissions test. Quoted $595. 00 for repair work, after repairs vehicle still will not pass emissions test.
My external light malfunction indicator went on. I stopped and saw that the left running light and the right low beam light were out. I turned the car back on 2 hours later the indicator was off and all the lights were working. Today I got the warning again and it cycled through to show multiple external lights needing replacement. It appears this is the melted fuse box issue. I see there has been a recall on some vws. Is the 2011 Jetta tdi recalled for this?.
2009 Jetta tdi sportwagen. During a panic stop to avoid an accident the abs and atc (traction control) dash indicator lights came on solid along with an alarm and the brake indicator light flashing on and off. During this panic stop both rear brakes locked. Turning the ignition off and on reset the indicator lights. Ten minutes later I attempted to duplicate the incident on a quiet side street by driving at 20 mph and hitting the brakes hard enough to engage the abs. Once again the indicator lights came on and alarm sounded. Dealer diagnosed problem as failure of the abs controller. Research on internet indicated that this is a common problem with 2009 Jettas with hundreds of similar occurrences. The part is $1750 plus labor to install brings total to $2200. The abs controller is not a wear item and should not be failing on a car which has 62,400 miles on it. The car has been dealer maintained and serviced since new. This was the first time the abs had been engaged other than during the winter on snow covered roads.

My 2010 vw Jetta wolfsburg radio went dead about 1 month ago. Forward to present day. After I came home from a 5 day vacation it would not start. I had to get a jump. This morning it would not start again after sitting 24 hrs. Before this all happened the doors would lock and unlock and the window would not roll up all the way. I cannot use bluetooth and my car sporadically will not start.
Sunroof would open and close at random, had that fixed while under warranty. Now the rear drivers side door will not lock and the alarm will not turn on. This is a safety issue as well as a theft issue and appears its pretty common due to previous vw threads. At $400 repair costs and vw knowing this is an issue, I feel this should be elevated to a recall status and not chargable to owners. Please help me/us, I cant afford the repair!!!.

While driving heard a pop and touch screen radio went dead all fuses test good and also lost all bluetooth capabilities. A rhythmic feedback was then audible in speakers and would not stop with car turned off had to remove fuse to stop the feedback noise.
At approximately 50k miles we where instructed by the dealer to change the battery. We followed instructions and consequently less then 1k miles later there was a large spark with the smell of electrical fire causing the radio to flame out and go dark. We where quoted $785 dollars to replace the radio on a four year old car. Possible electrical malfunction could lead to other problems.
I was driving as usual and my stereo went out. I know a lot of tdi owners with the radio 1k0 035 180 ac have had this issue too. The sheer number of people complaining about the faulty touch screen stereo makes this more than just a coincidence. This is more than just an am/fm radio problem we lose cellular capabilities that were factory installed. This is a safety concern more than it is just a "luxury" item that vw installs.
First intermittent and then inoperative turn signal and hazard flasher function. .
This is a followup on my NHTSA complaint with odi 10660489. I would like to bring to your attention the NHTSA campaign id number 04v584000 which precisely describes the same problem I have encountered with my Jetta. Please note that my Jetta is also a 2002 model as noted in the above campaign.
The contact owns a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta. While the vehicle was idling and attempting to accelerate, the contact heard an abnormal noise and the vehicle stalled. The vehicle was able to restart after several attempts. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 57,000.
Was slowing to make left hand turn, heard a pop and the radio went dead. Fuse is fine.
The touchscreen radio (model rcd-510, manufactured by delphi and utilized in various 2010-2011 model vws) had failed completely. It is acting as if no power is going to the unit. All fuses were checked and they are functional. All bluetooth and hands-free capabilities, which were built into the stereo system, no longer function. Any use of a phone while driving requires the use of hands, which is illegal in many states throughout the us. Otherwise, pulling off of the road to place/receive phone calls puts the driver at increased risk of being struck.
Turned my vehicle on and heard the radio pop and has been useless ever since. The radio in this vehicle controls everything. I have talked to vwoa and several other vw repair shops and they have told me this is not their problem and I must pay for diagnostics and repair myself. I am very displeased with the quality of parts and service in this vehicle. Also the way everyone seems to know what the problem is but lies about it really gets on my nerves. Its not right that a multi billion dollar company can continue to do this to people legally. I hope that there are good people at your organization that can make this right. I have found so many different websites, blogs , forums. And disappointed people that have this same problem. I have included just a few of the ones I have found with hundreds of thousands of complaints of the same issue. Thank you for taking the time to listen. . Read more...
Radio made a pop sound and turn off. Has not power up again. All fuses are good and power to radio is good. Radio has a flaw according to all the complaints by Volkswagen owners online. Could be a fire hazard. Vw is not doing anything about this if the warranty is expired.
Fuse f16 melted in engine fuse box disabling all right side lights and turn signals. This is a common complaint and also subject to recall on 2009 tiguans. This is the same problem, a hard-coated fuse should be installed via a recall.
Touch screen radio on my 2010 vw Jetta tdi stopped working a few weeks ago. At the same time the a/c began to fail. This week after researching why the radio stopped working came across many threads discussing similar issue and the term "parisitic drain". This problem causes the battery to be drained. Woke up this morning and I got in the car and the battery is drained. Will try the dealership once it opens.
I was driving along when the radio made a popping noise. Now it no longer works and I've lost all abilities to use my handsfree dial or answer features on my phone. Radio now has a black screen and will not power on. The loss of handsfree phone through my radio is a mojor safety concern and having it was a contributing factor when I made the purchase.
