2012 vw Jetta 2.5 se randomly shuts off? | VW Vortex


I’ve this identical concern on my 2012 VW Jetta 2.5 SE! Have had it since spring 2013, however I believe the primary time it occurred was summer time of 2017 and continues to occur to this present day. Simply replied to a special discussion board publish so I am going to simply copy and paste what I replied. This different OP mentioned that the ability provide relay was the problem. Did you ever resolve your concern?

“I do know that is an outdated publish, however I have been coping with this not too long ago on my 2012 Jetta SE. There have been events the place I’d be driving on a street or freeway and out of nowhere the low battery mild would come on and my steering wheel would lock up and the engine would shut off. On all events to this point I have been fortunate to show my steering wheel sufficient to tug over onto the shoulder. Normally the repair could be to take the important thing out after which flip it again in and the engine would come on usually with no low battery mild.

I’ve had the battery and alternator checked at each Volkswagen and Autozone and each mentioned they have been wonderful. I even reported this concern to an area Volkswagen they usually checked every thing and mentioned it was wonderful after which charged me like $130 for a diagnostic… Despite the fact that I have been monitoring the problem and it is occurred 3 extra instances after visiting VW. Truthfully I am afraid to let anybody else drive this automobile. It occurred to my girlfriend one time when she was driving my automobile and the identical concern occurred the place the engine shut off, however fortunately on an area street and never a freeway. She was clearly terrified so I ubered over after which took the important thing out and again in once more and engine turned on, after which I drove us dwelling. Then this occurred once more per week later after I was driving again from work.

However in any case I noticed this publish and thought it will be price a shot. At the moment I can not afford one other automobile and I’ve had this one for six.5 years. Hopefully can stick it out a pair extra after which promote it (or scrap it at this level). I requested an area store to switch the ability provide relay they usually agreed, mentioned it will be a fast job for the reason that half was solely $25. Nevertheless the man on the store referred to as me and mentioned there have been 4 energy provide relays within the Jetta, and requested which one to switch. I had no concept so I requested what he thought and he guessed it is likely to be the one below the sprint, so I agreed and informed him to switch that one. This was per week in the past and no points to this point, I am actually hoping this was the repair however solely time will inform.

To the OP and anybody else with this concern. Did changing the ability provide relay assist? Which one was changed?

Truthfully I really feel this could be such a large scandal for Volkswagen. Automobiles shutting off on the freeway whereas driving? The native VW was no assist even after I reached out to them once more just a few weeks in the past. Too unhealthy there isn’t any actual approach to show it because it simply occurs randomly.”
