So I have a 2016 GTI, since I’ve had it I’ve had nothing but problems with the push button start. Every time I take it to the dealer I tell them about the issue and they always say, it works good for us. I’ve taken video of me trying to start and turn off the car, some of these are over a minute long just to turn the car off! I’ve shown them the videos and I always get the same response, it starts fine for us. WTH? I’m about to lose my mind over this. Please help!!!

Maybe try a different dealer? The skillsets of dealer service departments vary a bit (Not just a Volkswagen Problem either).

Most likely a bad/loose connection, or a bad switch....

Thank you. I contacted the dealership and talked to service manager. Explained the problem and he said that he would oversee the problem and potential solution. I will let you know what happens on Friday.

It ended up being a bad push button. It’s been replaced and works like a charm now. I’ve had zero issues since it’s been replaced.
