We are the (4th owner) of a 2001 VW Jetta GLX. It has 88,000 miles. The problem the dealer diagnosed was the battery cell was dead and it was the wrong size battery for the car. The battery was replaced ($168) and no other codes was recorded. Two hours later, the car was dead again. After letting the car sit for awhile, it started on again. However, every 5 mins a buzz sound and Alternator workshop lit up on the dash. When the battery was dead it just clicked, no turning over sound.
What could it be? Alternator, belt, cables, voltage regulator or some censor issue?
