When you start your car, the starter is drawing the battery voltage available to the rest of the car down a few volts. This reduced voltage would make a could that requires full battery voltage weak and unable to provide enough spark to start the engine under some conditions. So what is done is that while the starter is being run, the full (but reduced) voltage is provided to the ignition coil. When you let go of the key after starting the engine the coil then receives a reduced voltage through a ballast resistor or wire, which is great for a coil that is designed to operate on a reduced voltage rather than a full voltage coil. If this is your problem, you would want to check this ballast resistor circuit, which could be anywhere from the ignition switch, the ballast itself, or a connection in between.
Yes! If you take an uncoded key (like an emergency door key) and try to start the car, the ignition system will disable itself. This is why locksmiths generally will not cut a spare key for you, and if they are willing to cut one, some will make you sign a waiver that says you will not place the key in the ignition to avoid getting sued later. A dealer can unlock the system for you. <><><><><> There is also a procedure for coding a new key to your ignition system. Again, see the dealer.
If it has recently been wired in it has probibly not been wired in correctly. There are normally two power points for a car radio, one constant and another that works only when the ignition is on. By the sounds of it, it is wired into the constant power source, hence not switching off with the ignition.
Well sometimes the radio is hooked up to the ignition itself. It is just the ignition wire, if it has a disconnecting face plate then you can turn it off by taking the face plate off. Or if you would like, you can pull the radio out and disconnect the wire from the ignition and it will not still be on when you cut the truck off.
Yes, if properly maintained. I would add to that answer that the VW's have historically had occasional quirky electrical behaviors. Such as, if I drove my 98 Jetta into a large puddle, making a big splash, my engine would quit. The problem was finally fixed with a new coil. That same car was on its third fuel pump relay when retired. I had a friend with a Beetle who would slilcon spray his ignition wires to prevent this same "cut-out" ignition problem above.
The anti-theft feature prevents the car from being started when one of several anti-theft devices is faulty are have otherwise been activated. The problem you describe might be the ignition switch, which is known to wear out quickly on those models. The system can be completely disabled only when the car is running (meaning the theft deterrent system is inactive after the Passlock II system detects the proper key in the ignition). A wire can be cut that would permanantly disable Passlock II, meaning any key that opens the door (or a screwdriver) could start the car. If the ignition swtich goes out or this wire is cut while the engine is off (theft deterrent system is active) then the car will have to be towed back to the dealer to have the ignition system replaced and reprogrammed.
