Ok I need help. My husband bought a 99vw
jetta and it starts and runs for about 15 min
the shuts off. We thought it was fuel issue
so we changed the fuel filter still did the
same thing, then thought maybe coil pack
was bad so we replaced that and spark
plugs still happening. My dad hooked it to a
scanner and it's throwing a bunch of
electrical codes, so if some one could tell
me if they have ever had this issue or if you
know where to start to,try and fix it I would
be very grateful cause I'm at a loss.

Post the codes! Some that pertain to timing could indeed cause an engine to shut off.


No codes - no answers!
