    Starter motor cutting out

    Hi,
    I got issue with 2011 Transporter T5 2.0 TDI BiTurbo 132kw. It started to cut out starter motor after 3 seconds. If it starts during 3 seconds it works perfectly fine if it doesnt I have to try start again.

    No faults or anything unusual from diagnostics.

    We tried to check relays and found that if you short relay 2 under battery(I found out by removing the relay and getting fault) you can turn motor over as much as you want and it always starts, but sometimes doesnt stop starter motor if engine starts.

    Anyway its very frustrating and I have spent so many time on this

    Maybe someone know what controls starter motor relays and what can make it cut out after 3 seconds.

    This is the video how it looks in action:


    Any feedback is appreciated.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this thread.

    Is this your 2011 Transporter T5 2.0 TDI BiTurbo or are you trying to fix someone else's?

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    Its no good posting YouTube video's on here has they haven't played correctly in months they show as a black box.

    Hi Keith,

    Sorry if this offended you but I was unaware of introductions. I am car mechanic and looking for solution.

    The car was scanned with VCDS and it doesnt show any faults hence looking for help online

    Looks like something is blocking starter relay without any reason.

    I always come back with solution if found to make sure forum has valuable info added for people like myself in the future.
    By the way I checked the link you posted and youtube videos are shown perfectly fine from 2019 so not sure if its fixed.

    I can remove video if required.

    Scanned with a genuine VCDS cable or a generic scanner?

    That isn't an easy question to answer on a forum.

    Start at the basics on the starter system.

    From your video, which I can view perfectly, that is exactly how the immobilser works but I would expect a dash warning and fault codes in the engine and immobilser. Private message me the vehicle's VIN so I can look at the wiring diagram.

    I've copied the video link into my browser.

    As suggested as that its an immobilizer problem.
