Start with the obvious, but sometimes overlooked things, and you may not need any car repairs. Check to make sure the fuel tank is not empty, or the headlights left on by mistake. Consult a car repair manual, if you need to, before moving on to the next step. Open the hood of the car and check out the battery. Clean the battery terminal connections; if they're corroded the battery won't hold a charge long enough to get the engine going. Remove any corrosion and tighten the battery cables. Examine the air filter; it's in a black plastic box to the right of the engine. If it looks dirty, replace it. Air filters cost less than ten dollars and all auto parts stores stock them. Check one of two fuse boxes located under the dashboard on the far left side, and also under the hood. If a fuse looks melted, that's a blown fuse, and it may be the answer to your problem. Take the melted fuse out and install a new one. Turn the ignition key to the on position but not all the way to start. If the dashboard lights don't come on, you may have a bad ignition switch. Broken, loose or disconnected wiring in the ignition system will cause the car not to start.

Vw golf mark4 over revs

Hello James,

If the engine revs up with no increase in speed, your clutch is slipping. Probably the reason the car was sold!

I have a vw golf gti. P reg 1996. recently it has

Hi Frank
If as you say....Nothing is happening at all when you turn the key, you appear to have one of two problems. A faulty starter motor--or--- A faulty ignition switch. If you can tap the starter motor while another person keeps the key turned to the start position, and the engine now starts you now know it is a starter problem. When doing this PLEASE MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF GEAR.
If it should start up, or even engage the starter motor while IN GEAR, serious injuries could happen, and I do not mean to your car.
Good luck
