Check the battery fuse box on top of the battery case,there are several large strip fuses in side several feed the main fuse box inside the car.They all should have a good solid 12 volts on either side

Also check the ground cables, a loose ground and all the power goes. Does anything in the car has power?

Me too, 2002 Jetta, no power to car. Ignition switch was changed at dealership, but shortly after I got it back it started having the same problems as before.

you ay have to replace the brain box under the dash. check sensor under dash, plug into and get the code to reset the ignition system. go through codes one by one.

I have a 2000 vr6 mk4 5speed changed trans and clutch and traced wires and still no power to the dash or anything any help would be greatly appreciated and pm with answer or what all to check thomas Schmid on fbook

01 TDI stalled out while driving was able to just about make it 3 miles down the road. No power at all. Battery was draining. Bought new battery. Died day after.
