Volkswagen Jetta owners from 1996 and up are in danger of extra costs just for changing the battery.
That’s right if you change your battery you will lose the following codes and you will have to take it to the dealer so they can reprogram them at an average cost of $150.00 more or less, depending on how many codes are disrupted.
Radio – Needs to be reprogrammed, will not play or turn on.
Note: you can get the code before hand so you can manually reset it you just need to know how to get the code before hand.
ECM – Will make the car not idle properly, run rough, or act like it’s missing.
Note: You need a professional to get this code out and to reprogramming the computer, you must find a person with a machine that can reads car codes and be able to do this for you. Jim & Deans can do this for a small fee and not at dealer cost.
Water pump – This is something you can’t get around, they make it out of plastic and will come apart under heat or heavy stress.
Note: You can replace this yourself or take it to your trusted mechanic like Jim & Deans Garage.

Ray the owner is an honest straight shooter. He diagnosed my clutch problem over the phone. He waited for me to get out of work to drop off the car. The repair was completed by the next day. He explained in detail what was wrong and even showed me the old part. He was fair on the price and prompt. I will be back for any future repairs.
