View Full Version : 1.4 TDI Starting problem!!!!!

16-03-2009, 07:28 PM
have a 51 plate 1.4TDI (deisel) Arosa which until now has run like a dream. (The other night after visiting a friend) On turning the ignition key to engage the starter motor the vehicle starts!!! but immediately cuts out when you let the key go into the normal setting for running. The battery light also ignites up when it stalls.
This is my first post on this forum and Iam looking for a bit of product knowledge to save me going through a long and labourist process when one of you may have had this problem in the past.
Thanks in anticipation!

iv got a 52reg and had the same problem. I stuck in 3 new heater plugs and a new barrel and it worked a treat. Hope this helps you.
