1996 vw jetta gl starting problem

I've replaced the starter and battery and this mother-father still won't start. Let me tell you a little about the this problem. When it first started I had to turn the key for about two or three time to get it to start. One day I was getting into the car after work and the car would not start. I sat there in the hot sun for an hour trying to get it to start. It finally turn over. I went straight to AutoZONE to get the battery test and that wasn't the problem. Now I got this car taking up space. Please, if there's anyone out there who can solve this for me please write me back. Oh, yeah, I don't think that it's the ignition coil, but I could be wrong.

1996 VW jetta will not start


You vehicle works off a standard ignition key which links to a electrical ignition switch. The wire from the switch goes to the starter solenoid. That wire has a fusable link which operates like a fuse. If to many amps surge through this wire it will melt down inside the insulation. The insulation will not melt away causing a headache to most novice mechcanics. Pull on the solenoid wire a few inches away from the solenoid and see if it stretches at least 1/8 of an inch or more. If it does it has an open stopping the continuity to the positive lug to the solenoid preventing it to work. Any auto parts store sells these fusable links. The counterperson will suggest the crimping supplies and tools needed to purchase for this repair
