Hey guys, 2 weeks ago i moved my car like 30 feet to the driveway to wash the car and 2 hours later when i finished, i went in the car to drive it back in and the car wouldn't start! BUT IT DID HAVE ELECTRICITIY. Lights worked well, radio, etc, but what would happen when i turned the ignition was just clicking really quick, i hooked up jumper cables and didn't even give it 5 seconds to "charge", the car started out fine.. I wasn't really afraid of a major problem because i've read be4 of our cars not starting after they moved it quick for a wash.
BUT this morning, i woke up late and was in a rush to get to school, and guess what, i wouldn't start again!! (the 1st time it happened was 2 weeks ago) This time i was surprised and damn i didn't know what the hell it was. The thing just clicked, oh yea i forgot to say the idiot lights also blinked w/ the clicking and MAF display shows innacurate temp. readings while trying to start it. I told my neighbor and he came and we hooked it up. He hooked up the cable and i was in teh car... i gave it just 5 seconds and it started up fine.
I told my friend, who knows LOTS about cars, that it could be my starter, not the battery... hmmm.. has this happened to anybody? anyway around it w/out taking it to service? exactly WHERE is the starter anyway on my 1.8t passat?
