02 vw jetta issues..

my wifes jetta has been acting strange lately and wondering if yall can help me out. sometimes when she goes to start it it will turn over but doesnt have the juice to start it. the lights and radio have power so the battery isnt dead. so ill jump the car and she will drive it fine for a few days then the same thing.

so it cant be the alternator if we can drive it for a few days without dying on us is it? i am thinking the battery might be going out.

i dont think it can be the starter cause if that was the case then it wouldnt crank over at all anytime, and would it still start after i jump it which it does no problem.

any ideas suggestions? no warranty for it either.

Check to make sure the brake lights dont stay on. My girlfriend had an 05 Jetta with brake light problems.

A little bit late on this one, but have you had the brake switch recall done? That will take care of the whole brake light staying on thing.

Yeah, she had it replaced twice. She has since sold the car, lots of problems, and got another 03 Jetta with problems.
