Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
When the ignition is switched on, there is no sound from the fuel injection charging. the engine turns over but does not fire up? VW Mk 3 Golf GTI. (R Reg)
Fuel relay could be faulty. i think its number 30 or 167 in the fuse box under the driver side steering. it could also be the fuel pump or connector on the fuel pump under the black metal plate under your trunk carpet. you could try manually throwing in fuel into the intake to make sure its not your car's ecu or ignition system. if it starts and stays running it could be what took me a few months to discover after i had intermittent problems. there a small vacuum hose from the fifth injector on a 1997 mk3 gti (4 cylinder) that connects to the injector rail. i think its some kind of activation for the electronic injectors. my pipe was broken and i just cut it and my car hasnt been better since! i know this is an old question but i hope it helps someone out there!

Sounds like an issue I had - was the fuel pump (dead)

Just a try find fuel line as it comes up into engine bay should be on right side then release the clip and get to engine over for couple seconds and if fuel doesnt come out then posible pump .if fuel comes out all ok over reason for not starting could be the cranksenser which picks up from flywheel one of the commen faults hope it helps stephen
