Could be the brake light switch or fuse.

where is the reverse light switch located on a 2002 jetta with a stick shift

if you mean the running lights in the bumper. you can push on the one side of it lightly and it will depress, then slide it in the direction that it pushed in. the other side should pop out. then reverse the steps to reinstall it

The 1990 VW Jetta turn signals will not work when the ground wire is broken or corroded. The turn signals may need the lightbulb's replaced.

if you mean WHERE are the 2007 jetta warning lights.. they are on the dash board... near the air conditioning vent. just push the red triangle button.

Emergency flashers are a separate circuit. I would replace the turn signal flasher relay. To find it, switch on your turn signals and follow the sound. The flasher is probably worn. I hope this helps.AnswerWhat he said, or you have a bulb out...

What do you mean? The heat is fine in my 97 volkswagen jetta.

I made a video on how to change the head lights in my jetta This is for a 2006 jetta tdi, but other years apply http://www.truezombielife.com/2006-jetta-head-light-replacement/

Daytime running lights

4 way flashers and turn signals both have a "flasher can" in the system to make the lights flash the turn signal and 4 way flashers are controlled independantly of each other try replacing the flasher can for the 4 way flashers it is obvious that the bulbs are ok because they work on turn signals

I have a '03 and there is an alarm if you leave tour lights on.

You should follow the Youtube instructions.

If the headlights will come on bright it's probably the starter. If the lights are dim it may be the battery. If you try jumper cables and it won't start it's probably the starter.

because that what they are for. otherwise they would be orange headlights.

The warning lights on a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta can indicated problems ranging from incorrect ignition timing to low air pressure in the tires. An OBDII code reader can be connected to analyze the problem.

Had the same problem with my GL. What I've heard is the back up blade in the shifting fork slips or falls out of line causing no contact when you shift into reverse. They have to replace reconnect thru transmission. 5 years without backup lights.

The windows and lights might not work on a Jetta if there is a blown fuse. Also check for moisture in the area beneath the controls for each as moisture could have caused corrosion of the wiring.

If it's a manual it's supposed to whine when reverse is used, if it's an automatic it probably just needs transmission fluid.

it depends what year this jetta is? 93-99's will have the fuse on the drivers side underneith near the petals...you should find it there

This happened once to me, the cause was in the electrical conector for the rear lights, one of the cables had melted the conector, maybe this is happening to you also. I fixed the problem cutting that cable and connecting it directly to the rear lights assembly (here in Mexico is dificul to get spare parts), maybe in your case (US) you could change the connector if this is the same problem with your car.

Turn headlight switch on then pull out...there you go!

You can reset the brake warning lights, on your VW Jetta, by backing up 20 feet and using the brakes. The automobile will sense the new pads and the warning light will go off.
