I have a 1997 Volkwagen Golf K2 that has refused to start. The battery is okay and I have also tried boosting it with no success. The engine just keeps on cranking but there is no sign of running. There seems to be enough petrol in the tank. I live in Ottawa, Ontario and the temperature today is about -15 degrees centigrade. Although the car has started well when it was -20 up to -30 degrees centigrade. Any assistance will be much appreciated. Than k you, Everett.

hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?
