Look on the starter, there are 2 terminals (plastic and black) if i remember correctly, alot of times the top connector gets loose or disconnected. Make sure all connections on starter are clean and secure. Try that before anything else.

Did you resolve this?
I drive a mk3 golf GTI 8V and mine starts fine but after driving for about 3 minutes (engine warms up) it starts to misfire, the car stalls and then you can't start it again until the engine has cooled. Does this sound similar?

VW GOLF MK3 GTI 8v starting problems


My mk3 1996 16v 2ltr was playing up, wouldnt start when cold, wouldnt rev above 4500-5000. I changed the ignition switch, ecu relay, petrol pump relay, plugs,plug leads, coil, and finally, checked the hall sender on the dizzy, and found a broken wire in the dizzy body. Got a 2nd hand dizzy from a breakers for 40 quid, (150 or more new) and all is well. (I actually took the car to two garages and they couldnt find the problems, no faults registered on vagcom).

The blower has stopped working! Tried the fuse but


check for voltage at the blower motor with switch on. if you see voltage there, but the motor isn't working - it needs replaced. if no voltage at blower motor, work your way back to the switch to see if it's working correctly.
