To All !

Started my bug this morning, idled normally, even revved it and after 10 to 15 seconds it died.
It would not start after that.

Here is a list of resent maintenance.....

new fuel pump and the 4 new fuel lines to the pump.
drained tank and fresh gas with a fuel prep called "Lucas".
fuel filter.
Idle Air Control Valve cleaned.
new ignition coil module.
air filter.

Last but not least, VCDS has no error code for me.

Any Ideas ??
Thank you all for your help.
Ricky

Tooooooo much work !
Takes forever, like an hour later it's still scanning and i have no idea how to paste it to this forum.
Remember i am getting "COM3" with no "Fault Codes" and Group 001, 002, 003.....data.
Bug started, idled (for 10 sec) and died. Had been running fine for months with a new fuel pump.
Only cranks now, no combustion or attempt to fire of any kind.
I did spray some starter spray in the throttle throat this morning.
It started and idled for a few seconds then died.

So, give me your best opinion and i will do what you suggest.
I am using a serial (rs232) 9pin cable and VCDS 11.1 shareware from RossTech to my MS XP operating system dell laptop.

Thank you for your time HMC.
Very kind.

Thank you, i will do my best.
My VCDS-lite s/w is from 2012, on an MS XP dell laptop.
I've seen the down selects on my s/w, the mexi is not there.

Just a reminder to all.
I do appreciate all your ideas.

Remember as stated in the Forum Heading.....

"Forum: General VW/Audi Repair
For questions about repairs where VCDS isn't involved at all."

I will take advise, my opinion is that "VCDS 1.1" shareware from the dinosaur era is not alot of help or i'm just an idiot and can not navigate it property.
So what are your experiences and solutions with my issue ??
That way, even if i do not use VCDS s/w searching for a solution, i can use your experiences and decide for myself.

Thank you All !

I'm not aware of a single other person on this forum who drives a Mexi-Bug. Hence experiences and solutions may be hard to come by here.

PS: How is this car even legal in the US? It certainly did not meet the US emissions or safety certifications for 2003, and it does not qualify for the 25+ year old exemption.

Sorry Uwe,
I wrote you such a long response that the system timed out.
So here is the short version.
Buy a legal donor car, strip it down and replace it with all new parts.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS !!

No, but I have some advice for you: Please refrain from opening duplicate threads with the same question about the same car in different, inappropriate forum sections. The Forum Support & Feedback section is for questions related to the functionality of the forum itself, not your car.

Baby carrots defense?

Since you are apparently mechanically inclined but RTFB illiterate, you could swap it back over, right OP?

Wow James (european parts emporium), ”U Da man”, feel better now ??? Instead of helping us new to the forum, you act like an ass. I’ve seen your responses to others reaching out to you on other parts of the “RossTech forums. You criticize, belittle and bully them. If you don’t like this specific forum, “General VW/Audi Rapair (For questions about repairs where VCDS isn't involved at all.)”, tell the RossTech IT Guru’s to re-name. So until then, shut the hell up and let others use the forum as stated. Maybe we can help each other without you sticking your nose in it. You have all the other forums to bully, and criticize.
Have a great weekend James.
You are pathetic.

There's a reason why Jack is known as "NostraJackAss".

He has a great deal of knowledge and helps many people, but some can't abide his style. If you have a problem with him, there is a handy solution:

Indeed Uwe, they can't ignore & turn away from me as the guy you love to hate, don't they always want more?

If I didn't break peoples balls, wouldn't they think something is wrong, sorry OP people have expectations of me, please let us know when are you ready to throw down the coins & get authenticated versus penetrated?
