Mk3 Gts 1.8i problem

Post by Bra Langa942 » Mon Mar 11, 2019 12:01 am

A few days ago I started my Mk3 Gts in the morning and after idling for a minute or so it just died, didn't want to start anymore. I checked it out after work and found that it wasn't making any spark and so I replaced the coil pack and still didn't make any spark to start up. So I bought another set of ignition cables for the coil and spark plugs and still nothing happened. I'm really don't know what's wrong and need some assistance as to what the problem might be because the coil doesn't make fire for start up. Also I have a anti hijack system that's installed straight to the starter and I wanted to know is that healthy and can that cause the problem after owning the car for almost 8months.

See if you can bypass the immobilizer and check if you get spark and the car starts.
