I have a 97 Jetta that will not start the running lights and heater/
cooler fan, rear defrost light when normal ignition turn is used. If
you giggle the key or turn the key to a full turn position everything
will function. This has become a real pain because I can not drive and
hold the key while driving a manual. Is this the ignition? I just
recently had it replaced a year ago and slowly this problem has gotten
worse. Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Cheaper the
fix the better! Thanks again!
IMHO yes it should be the ign switch
Please buy from the dealer $34
The aftermarket ign switches sometimes don't last. I tried an aftermarket
ign switch and it lasted maybe 1 week. The original one I rebuilt almost
lasted 1 year, but so far the new one from the dealer has been great for
almost 2 years.
