check spark plug wires and coils for moistore put some lube on the coil wires check for spark after it wont start if itll crank but not start its 1 of 2 thinks no spark or no fuel usally when the coils get too wet they wont allow spark to come through or will cause it to arc

96 Golf wont start .. turns over gets spark but wont start

Hate to do this hard way but assuming you have no test equip. Pull the starter and have the Auto Parts Store check it out on the bench tester for free.

I'd go with the new wires & cap. make sure you add dielectric grease to wires on each end too before snapping them in/on.

1996 Volkswagen Golf won't start in rain

I had this problem before, replace your cap & rotor if it wont start in the rain after that then replace your spark plug wires it will run you about 60 bucks for everything depending on where you go and then your on your way in the rain. Some hair line cracks can form in the cap that are not visible to the eye, and for the wires the can be shorting out to the block or head which is also not visible to the eye.

Pull the CPS Plug apart and clean that.
It's the grey one near the cambelt end and leads down to the crankshaft pully.
