Question about 1993 Volkswagen Passat
I recently bought this car from a private seller. When I picked it up he said that it had been sitting in the cold for awhile so it needed a jump. After a few jumps and a few good starts, it now wont start at all. It acts as if the clutch isn't pushed in. The engine doesnt even attempt to turn over.
The power is good now, all lights work fine.
You may also check the clutch pedal switch when you push the pedal in see if the switch is actuating.If not-no start.

I had the same problem with my 93 Passat diesel, good lights and glow plugs but no effort to turn over. I could hear the relay kicking in the dash (by the drivers window.) I decided to cross the starter terminals and then discovered that the wire was corroded under the solenoid and into the body of the starter. I got a replacement starter and it rolls over fine. Now if I could get ti to pick up fuel... hahahaha
