Customer Question

replaced battery in my volks gti ,and now wheni open the door my door lights come but nothing on the dash and it wont crank over
JA: There are so many things that can cause battery issues. Some simple, some complicated. The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Will the car start?
Customer: no new battery just changed it
JA: Got it. The mechanic will have thoughts on how you two can troubleshoot and diagnose this issue. How old is the battery?
Customer: every thing was fine till I changed the battery
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I told you the old battery went dead and I put anew one in it and now it wont crank and the dash wont light up
JA: Anything else I can tell the VW Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: nope
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the VW Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.
