2003 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 65000 miles
While driving the car will shut down and not restart untill jumped. It will then run fine for days, then do it again while driving. I had the battery, alternator & starter checked ok. Upon inspection all I can see is the fuse box that sits on top of the battery has a wire that melted some plastic. The red wire is the feed from the battery. Right below it is a black wire connected with a 110v fusibile link, that is the one that melted somewhat. I was told this goes to the starter. I checked and nothing appears loose. If I hook everything up it will start. I was going to replace the fuse box for $100 but dont want to ruin that one and not fix the problem. Any ideas please!
have the same problem?
