I have a 1.8L 1999 Passat with 105,000km. When it is hot out and it is parked in the direct sun, it will not start. You turn the key, the dash lights up, but there is no turnover; nothing. It will push start and drive fine. If you let it sit for a while in the shade or the garage it will start without a hitch and continue to do so until you once again leave it parked for an hour or more in the hot sun. Any ideas? The starter, Ignition Control Module and Battery were replaced in November of 2003 and the ignition was replaced in January of this year after theft recovery (It had been punched).
have the same problem?
