no mention of the aux input not working after disconnecting a battery.
You have to do a computer reset as well!
OOPS I have a 2018 Jetta 1.4L
You do not mention using a scanning tool??..Garages here have told me the VW dealership will have to change the battery as the computer system of the car needs to be reset. Even CAA and Canadian Tire Auto here in Canada cannot change it?.
thanks dude, gave me the confidence to do this with out even calling my brother. took like 15 minutes including head to the advance auto parts to by it. no more needing jumps in the winter.
Man i appreciate you so much man did mine within 10 minutes. Cali living
Thank you for the helpful video. It was short and to the point. Good emphasis on safety rules
My horn keeps going off every time I touch the negative to the terminal
Hey people, be sure to just loosen the terminal nuts, don't try to wrench them all the way off. You jus need a little space. Otherwise, you could end up stripping them and you'll have a whole new problem. Be careful.
Can you use any battery for the Jetta
my dad refused to help me change my car battery and this was extremely helpful, so thank you very much 🙂
Thank you right to the point
You have to have the computer reset when your changing the battery also. This was not mentioned in video. Call your local parts dealer!
What battery is it ?
Good day and Happy New Year. I have to replace the battery for my girlfriend's 2018 VW Jetta. Now did you say that it's the 13mm socket for the bottom battery plate holder and 10mm for the battery nut terminals on the battery.? What size is the wrench head for the socket to fit in and extender is it 1/2" or 3/4". Extender should be I presume at least 12 inches long or so. Thanks!
