Weird No start problem


Recommended Posts

hi

1999 C2 USa Tip,

Ok this happen twice today , never happened before

When i turn the key to start position nothing happened no crank ,

I turned the steering wheel alittle and tryed agian it fired right up like awlays,

Agian at the store, Went to start the car nothing no crank , turned the wheel alittle bit and it fired up

Once at home i tryed 6-7 time to get it not to start with the wheel but it cranked and fired everytime, i couldnt get it to do it agian

Is there a part that is connected to the steering wheel and the starter,

I would like to replace the part before it fails

"996.347.017.07" --> STEER LOCK HSNG W/SW --> $168.50

This seems to indicate that the previous work included the entire "new and improved" steering lock assembly. While nothing is 100% reliable, the new steering lock/ignition switch is supposed to be much better than the original assembly.

Your initial post indicated that you could turn the key to the start position. Do all of the normally associated warning lights illuminate? Does the key spring back automatically from the start position to the ignition on position by itself or do you have to manually position it?

If every thing is otherwise "normal", it might be better to first look somewhere else, e.g. the Tiptronic/starter interlock. If everything points to a failure of the electrical portion of the steering lock/ignition switch, here is the new part number: 4B0 905 849 - ignition starter switch.

I,d also look at replacing ignition switch first. I had a similar no start problem - right after I had a new stero installed in the car. Drove home from installer, next day turned the key, no cranking, nothing. Battery voltage was fine. Tried jump start. Nothing. Looked at clutch position sensor *clutch must be down on 6spd to start - so thought it could be bad switch there - not sure how that works on tip - but there is probably brake pedal sensor ? Turned out to be my DME fuse. The installer had to repalce the fuse for my amp - but since he didn,t know which one, he had removed, checked and reinserted ALL the fuses. I guess the DME fuse was not seated back in the holder very well. I pulled the fuse, put it back in - snf voils - car fired up right away. SInce then, no problem. But in your case, since jiggling the wheel fixes the problem, I'd repalce the ignition switch first - it is cheap part and easy DIY.
