1994 volkswagen jetta won't start sometimes

My 1994 jetta won't start sometimes, when I turn the key it sounds like it out of gas, then once I get a jump off with jumper cables it starts right up, I've replaced the battery @ Starter, and it's still doing the same. the car is crazy, it will run good for a couple of weeks and then that one day it won't start, until I get a jump off, then it will run for days and back to the same status, sounds like it's out of gas once you turn the key, someone please help me out and tell me what's my problem. I was told to replace the fuel filter, so I'am about to buy one today, I'm hoping it's not the fuel pump causing this problem.

    Turning key on, fuel pump sounds but there is just a clicking once turning key fully on. What could be the problem?

It sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere, what i would suggest is to take it to a autozone and have them put in on the computer. If it is the fuel filter, it is a quick fix not more than 20-60mins.
-I look forward to your post

1996 manual jetta won't start. It won't even crank. There is a whinning noise when I turn the key from the engine but that's it.

Sounds like the starter drive is not fully engaging with the fly wheel... might try to tap firmly on the body of the starter while you turn the key but be careful not to hit the wires... Might get you going enough to get to a garage and have it checked. good luck!

The car alarm goes off and the car wont turn over

im having the same problem on a 1994 jetta 2.0 liter gas car. if you put the key in passenger door and hold the key in lock position for 30 seconds with all doors and trunk lid and hood shut it will reset the alarm system. sometimes open trunk after doing this and shuting it again will reset the system. I did this and the car started and shut it off and wouldnt start agian until i went through the process again. weird and frustrating. still working on the problem.

1994 vw jetta no fuel and ignition

It sounds like you may need an ignition contact block. It turns everything on. If all the idiot lights come on when you turn the key to on. Then move the key to start the engine. Note the engine can turn over but no ignition power or fuel can be do to the contacts in the block. Take notice if the idiot lights stay on, or turns off when you crank the engine to start. The lights should stay on.
The contact block is not an easy fix and can take a few hours. The procedures are found online. Steve
