VW GolF 2006 fsi will not start after fuse change? Could some one help me with this? I have and esp fault light that will not turn off so today I checked if the fuse was broken...not knowing which one I looked at all of them but I did replace one fuse in the incorrect postion, I then tried to start engine and of course it woudn't turn...then I put the fuse in the correct postion after looking at diagram (all fuses are in correct position now) but now the fuel pump does not sound on ignition turn on and car turns but will not start anymore...on trying it also plashed STOP in red on panel....also elecrical close windows with key does not work....anybody know what has happened (has immobilizer cut in? and how can I fix this problem???
yes all fuses are in correct position. when turning on the ignition there is no sound of pertol pump
I have a friend coming this evening to do this, also all fuses are in correct position and none have blown...i replaced new just in case and are all in correct place and amp with diagram...everything was fine untill I checked the ABS fuse I also looked at all the other fuses at the same time (perhaps I removed a fuse when car was running) due to EPS light showing on car illumination
there are no fault codes present...start and turns but will not start...no fuel getting to engine?
Hello pete, just had friend round with the diagnostic kit, there were no faults present and golf occasionally start but turn off straight away, my friend who isnt a qualified machenic (but has expeirence) says that the antitheft has cut in and the fuel pump is not working also power steering will not realese, so I have arranged for the car to be picked up and taken to Vindis VW in cambridge, they have told me that the ESP fault light will be fixed FOC as it is a common problem with Golf 2004-2008, but to reprogramme (if it is that will need to be paid) but if you can think of anything let me know...ps there were no fault codes to eliminate...thanks you so much...I will wait for reply then make the £18.00 payment uk car answer...Anthony
from what I can gather the pressure switch in the abs is faulty (which disingages the ESP and VW are repairing this FOC thay will fix the ABS with a kit, this is from ESP fault light forum on facebook...I have a customer code with VW that will verify this also. fault G201...I just hope that the key will not need reprogramming..thanks again for your help, Anthony
