My 1999 TDI wouldn't start after a short trip and setting 5 hrs.

Did you notice any random noises that you have never heard or surging? It might be the alternater. You shoud probably should go to a pepboys of autozone and they will find out what it is. It also could be many other things like the ignition went dead, (hapened to me once.) Hope this helps.
