1998 vw jetta gl if key is turned to the start position there should be a wire energized for starter (starter relay) right?


Yes, but don't get starter "solenoid" confused with starter "relay". The circuit should go from the starter switch to the fuse box, to the relay. Then the circuit will either go to the start solenoid or a secondary, larger relay. I am not certain about VW, but many manufacturers are using two switching relays in order to "step up" the load capacity. This is so the actual key-switch only has to control a tiny load, which makes it last longer.
If you do not have an open fuse link, it is time to find a wiring diagram. In my experience, I have always found that if one calls the service manager at the dealership, he/she is happy to provide a photocopy of a wiring diagram. The diagram will make it clear if there is one or two switching relays, and even what color the wires are and so on.
I hope this is helpful. Good luck.

1996 VW Jetta wont start


Check to see if it's getting gas or spray some starter fluid into intake. If it fires, change fuel filter first and try it without starter fluid. If it doesn't start then change fuel pump.

1987 Volkswagen Jetta GL rough idling problem.


Hi!
So far you have done all but change the leads! This will help dramatically BUT if your head gasket is blown I'm afraid you'll have real difficulty in get it to run smooth as water/steam is possibly mixing with the fuel causing very poor ignition.
I did the same as you on a Golf as soon as the new leads were fitted Bingo a New Car, However there wasn't a head gasket issue.
Good Luck and A Happy New Year to you and your Family.
