2001 Volkswagen Beetle GLS 4 Cyl 2.00L

Preventive Maintenance

Car starts sometimes and sometimes fuel pump doesnt work

Sometimes it runs fine and then all the sudden the next time it doesn't start sounds like the fuel pump doesnt turn on. Already changed the fuel filter and it still does the same thing. This started about in Aug, it did it once and worked for over a month in half and then it happened again. worked for another few weeks and it happened again, There is a air bag light .on that was on prior to this happening. We took it to a shop and nothing came up on the codes.we thought it was the fuel pump or fuel relay but the pump still turns on sometimes

First diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool/code reader to determine what the stored troublecode is. And then check the condition of your fuel pump relay.
