Hope this gives an idea where to look.
For an engine to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine, compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run. Follow the repair guide below:

1998 passat.i have a blue wire from the back of the ignition barrel which has melted i believe its the starter wire.ive traced the wire up the loom were it went into a yellow cimp and a small blue wirer...

check if the wire on the starter is fallen off or burnt.It might be touching on part of the chassis or engine and shorting when you try start the car.Is the engine turning over? Put the car in 3rd gear and try pushing it to check if the engine is not seized.If the engine is seized the starter wire will heat up as the starter will not be able to turn the engine.

When i turn the key to start the engine, the key must be turned off & on a few times before the starter is engaged, why?

There is a poor contact on the wire terminals on your ignition switch, have that changed. Check also stater solenoid.

Reset service interval alarm on VW Passat-01?

This is a mileage interval light that trips every 3,000 to 5,000 miles that indicates an oil change is necessary. You do not need a special tool to change your oil, nor do you need to bring the car in to the dealer.
1. Sit in the driver's seat of the Passat and close all the doors.
2. Position the trip/odometer button to display the odometer mileage reading, then hold it down with the forefinger on your left hand.
3. Turn the ignition key to the "key-on/engine-off" position to turn on all the power options for the Passat without actually starting the engine. At this point, a service indicator light will display (in the form of a wrench).
4. Press the minute adjustment button on the clock (or turn the knob clockwise on European manufactured Passats) and release the trip/odometer button.
Good luck and thank you using Fixya

2004 vw Passat TDI 130bhp not starting after >8hrs

simplest answer first,and this does not apply to a hot engine,The engine heaters work from a time switch on the door(would you believe)and the routine is, open door,climb in,put on belt,put key in ignition and turn on when orange light goes out.this allows the cold start heaters time to work(about 20 secs).sounds a pain but the number of times this has been all it is,when you put key in ignition, the fuel pump charges the system.hence the squirt noise,also the car has to reccognise the key(immobiliser system)also try using wynns/redexe to clean injectors...

Our R reg Sharan will no longer start.

first go to the basics charge the battery fully make sure leads are clean and tight with ignition off put car in gear handbrake off and rock car in gear to turn engine over (make sure you are not on a hill) so as to move starter.
check back of starter wire connection both large power wire and small spade terminal
check wiring on back of alternator plug and main wiring for alternator if all this is ok and it wont start if you have ignition lights but still doing the same then if it is manaual tow the car and try and start it if it is auto you can only replace bit by bit but try battery first from donor car as this is the easiest good luck
