    We've been having the same problem.  At first we thought it was bad diesel fuel.  It worked better when the weather was really cold.  Once it started to warm up a little the problem became more frequent.  At first it was only happening when I drove the car, and my husband blamed it on me! (that Y chromosome thing).  Finally it started happening to him, too.  We took it in for repair and it started up just fine for the mechanic!  Grrr  -  However, eventually we changed a relay and so far, cross your fingers, it seems to be starting every time.  The relay we changed was the park/neutral position relay (#11 on the wiring diagram in the VW Jetta,Golf, GTI Service Manual).  The number on the relay is 175.
    However we also changed the diesel filter, so we're really not sure which change made the difference.  Also, I'm still not totally convinced the problem has been fixed.  I've only driven it a day or two since those two items were changed.  I keep thinking I'm going to need to call for help in the supermarket parking lot again. Bummer.

Hi there?
It sounds like the injectors are blocked. the reason i say this is because the bottom of the tank is full of durt and it must have got through when it was low in diesel.
You need to get the car scanned, if the code p1517 comes up then the injectors are block for sure.
Good luck.........

ASL on cannot get into gear, and brake light are out


To get the car out of park you have to put the shifter right in between neutral and drive and as soon as the car starts put it in drive. Keep your foot on the brake obviously. You can go to Reversve once you get the car started and in DRive.

VW Polo Classic 1.6 Radiator fan not going on


Try moving the fan blades by hand to see if the fan spins freely to see if the problem is frozen bearings in the fan motor. Replace the fan motor if it doesn't turn. If it spins freely disconnect the wires and hook the fan directly to the battery using a jumper. If it runs the problem is most likely the thermostatic switch. If it doesn't the fan motor is bad.
