2001 VW Beetle will not start

My 2001 VW Beetle Turbo will not start. This has happened a couple of times in the last 2 weeks (as it has gotten a little colder). When I turn over the key all of the lights flash on and off (lights on the dashboard) and then everything resets. My clock goes to 12:00 and my trip-odometer goes to 0.0.
The weird this is if I push down on the gas as I'm trying to start it, it usually starts. Today it would not start at all, even with trying to give it some gas. 
Any ideas what might be the cause?
