Hello! I hope the community can help me figure out what’s going on. My 2016 Jetta (44K miles) did not start today. It was doing totally fine yesterday and today just nothing. It is the push button Start, so I thought it was the battery in the FOB. But I did not change the battery right away as I still tried to start it by holding the key close to where a normal key would go (it worked before when the FOB battery died.) Nothing worked, so I called the tow truck. The tow truck guy said he could jump start it for me and the car started! There were no signs on the dashboard indicating that something was wrong with the battery. Since it was easily jump started, could it be that while I was futzing around with the dead key the battery got affected?
The big question is, with no lights on the dashboard showing that anything is wrong, should I take it for diagnostics to the dealership? They’d charge me $150 for it.
