Customer Question

I have a 2003 Jetta 2.0 engine. The problem I have is when it rains the engine will not start. After the rainfall, usually a day or two of drying out, the engine will then start. Seems like something is shorting out. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello, I'm Brandon - VW tech.

The water is going to the ignition coils. You have carefully examine the ignition coil boot to see if there was water going into the spark plug hole.

Make sure the coils connection are not open and the cable is secure.
