The first thing is to figure out which pump... there is a transfer pump (in the fuel tank) and a high pressure pump (under the right rear of the car) get under the car and have someone turn the key to "run"... if you HEAR a humming sound coming from the pump that you can SEE, then it is most likely the transfer pump... if you hear NOTHING then remove the boot on the pump and check for voltage on the positive terminal using a light or a meter. If no voltage then check fuse or the fuel pump relay. (hint: you should hear a "clicking" sound with your ear close to the fuse panel when you turn the key...) VW fuel pumps are really reliable as long as you don't have too much dirt or water in the tank. Eliminate the electrical circuit and high pressure pump as suspects before looking at the transfer pump. Hope this helps.. (oh, and have a clamp handy when changing the high pressure pump to avoid a huge fuel spill!)

VW Golf MK3 wont start


fuel relay could be faulty. i think its number 30 or 167 in the fuse box under the driver side steering. it could also be the fuel pump or connector on the fuel pump under the black metal plate under your trunk carpet. you could try manually throwing in fuel into the intake to make sure its not your car's ecu or ignition system. if it starts and stays running it could be what took me a few months to discover after i had intermittent problems. there a small vacuum hose from the fifth injector on a 1997 mk3 gti (4 cylinder) that connects to the injector rail. i think its some kind of activation for the electronic injectors. my pipe was broken and i just cut it and my car hasnt been better since! i know this is an old question but i hope it helps someone out there!
