well my friend, your windshield wipers work off of an electric motor powered by your battery which is charged by the alternator, hope this makes sense to you, if wipers arent working it may be a fuse or the electric motor. if your alternator belt is not on or your alternator isn't working your battery will bo dead pretty quick and your car wont start at all. hope i helped firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any car questions
It is under the cowl thing. You must remove the wipers. MAKE SURE YOU MARK THE LOCATION OF THE WIPERS ON THE WINDSHIELD.
Unfortunately you need to replace the wiper control inside. Look it over closely, if your not comfortable doing it then take it to someone you trust for repairs.
You will need to bolt the alternator into your 2001 VW Jetta engine. Connect the wiring harness to the back of the alternator. Put the serpentine belt on to the alternator. Tighten the belt.
The 2009 Volkswagen Jetta takes fairly specialized wipers. See related links below. 24" drivers side and 19" passenger side with special attachments. This vehicle also came equipped with beam style blades so its recommended to stick with that style.
most likely the alternator is bad.
A 1999 Volkswagen Jetta's alternator is located on the front of the engine. To remove it the mounting bolts, belt, and bracket must be removed. Once taken off the engine the alternator should be directly tested to see if it is indeed the problem.

how do i turn off rear wiper for my Montana van
I just had this same problem with my 1998 VW Jetta. My parking brake light came on one day, but only half illuminated. Shortly after my windshield wipers and headlights stopped working. My radio works but the fans don't work either. I just found a thread which seems to point the problem at the ignition switch: http://car.justanswer.com/volkswagen/6uht-1998-volkswagen-jetta-headlights
The 2005 VW Jetta had a change mid-model year and it will depend on when your Jetta was manufacturered. See related links below for a description of what to do to determine which wipers you need.
The 2010 Volkswagen Jetta has 20 valves.
