Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
I drove it to work and come back our after my shift and it would not start, no click or turn over at all, what could the problem be?
Have a look at your battery terminals. If they have a whitish blue calcium-like substance on them, it could be this oxidation that's preventing your start. To fix this, clean the terminals and battery clamps thoroughly with battery cleaning solution. Reconnect and give the terminals a shot of WD40 to help prevent it from recurring as fast.

Sounds like the battery. Have the alternator and battery checked. If they are ok then check your starter motor.
