hi lads, picked up my 2000 2.5tdi earlier this week and loving it.

she needs a fair bit of tlc and service work before I tear into the campervan conversion over the winter though!

I've noticed an intermittent start problem.....i turn the key, wait for the glow plug light to go out, and if I'm not fast enough, she doesn't fire, doesn't turn over, doesn't click...nothing.

if i do it a bit quicker it still seems to start without any issue...?

ignition switch maybe?

had a b4 passat which used to do something similar which was cured by replacing the famous '109'realy...do t4's suffer from a similar problem?

any info/advice much appreciated!

thanks,

Paul.

Well Paul, welcome to the dark side of VW I:

Had the same prolem with one of my vans and turned out to be the ignition switch.
But as you said, don't rule out 109 relay.

Cheers guys, i find if i press the key in when turning on, she starts every time, so looks like it could be the ign switch acting the maggot!

it, might change relay as well just for peace of mind.
