Try your spare key, or the valet key in the ignition.
I had this problem too, the key would unlock the doors and release the trunk but would not start the car. Took out the spare key and it started. Go figure? Hope it works for you. I was off to get a new starter put in the car when my GREAT brother in law said, try to valet key, maybe the key lost its memory. He was right and saved me a boat load of money $$$$.

First check petrol flow and pressure , if pressure ok ,check flow, if flow is low replace fuel filter, If the fuel all checks ok .There is a relay that disables the injectors and petrol pump when on gas, this may be at fault.

Car wont start

My routine to check non-starting motors: (petrol/gas models)

  • Check immobilizer status
  • Check fuel supply -does it reach the fuel rail when starting. If not OK, check 12v supply to fuel pump when starting. If OK, fuel pump maybe dead.If not present, check fuel pump fuse and relay.
  • If fuel supply is OK, check spark ignition. If not OK, follow the supply circuit backwards to the ECM. Coils and/or ignition amplifier connector should have one 12v supply to it when ignition switch is on.
For Diesels with 'common rails' you can take same approach for fuel. No ignition testing possible. The diesel fuel pump still needs battery power. It will make some sound when IGN is on. If not, check ALL fuses and relays.

Hi dave hill, not really sure on your problem but I have a VN commodore that I purchased that had the fuel pump crook and did the same thing of not starting on petrol. Owner said to hold in lpg button when starting . I got the fuel pump replaced. Mechanic said it was caused by not running petrol through enough and running always on LPG.

I tried jump starting a diesel engine with my petrol engine now my petrol engine wont turn over although the battery is good why ?

Some times the extra amperage coming from the alternator the diesel motor will burn out the electrical components of a smaller vehicle. This is why you should never jump start your lawnmowers, motorcycles, or any small engine with a full size vehicle. Check your battery, then alternator, and keep tracing it back until you find the source of the problem.

My 98 golf 1.6 sr wont start got spark petrol to in jections took plug out and it was dry been like this now 4 3 days just turning over came up the a code of 00625 speed senor inpausiable or could it be...

OK you have fuel to the injectors, but it seems that none is coming out. First check fuses, second is to check fuel pressue, if theres not enough the wont work. third is to check for fire at the injector harness. this can be done with a noid light or volt meter. The 625 code is from the altenator low voltage, don't worry about that. Happens when the battery starts getting below a certain voltage.
