Question about 1996 Volkswagen Golf
I think it s my ignition monitor or relay how do i trouble shoot?
I repaired my Postmans Golf with the same problem. From the brief description given I'm presuming you turn the key all the way and Zip nothing? It is a common fault,the Ignition switch has a module which wears out so that all systems light up and as you take the terminal too the starter solenoid power it doesn't make contact.
I fitted a fused push to make button switch (Maplin's £3.50) and to the solenoid wire in the ignition wiring loom (Hot Wired the starter) It is still working 5 yrs later. He is proud,as Mini use the same style push button starting! on the 08 models.
However you could purchase the push on replacement part from V.W. My Post was quoted £175 fitted from V.W. Franchisee I did it for £40 all in.
I hope this throws light on the problem.
