95 Golf G3. Why won't my car start I really need help

My car tries to start but when i turn the key the lights on the dashboard wont even show, if i let my car sit for a couple of days i can get it to start. Note that sometimes when i turn the key and the lights on dashboard do turn on i am able to get the car to start, but when i take it for a spin the oil signal starts to blink and makes a beeping noise. Just the other day i got my car to start and after a while it just turned off and i was not able to get the car to start. I am only able to start the car when the lights on dashboard turn on.. Please Help

Note i started the car today for the first time since 2 weeks ago. And whenever i go for a ride my oil light starts flashing and beeping at about 2 rpm . The motor feels very weak what should I do???

    thanks for being pleasent at the end with the please help. sounds like it could be a lower ignition switch issue. when the dash lights don't show and the engine will not start, very lightly wiggle the key in the start position in the igniton switch. please update if you need.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Lights turn on when car is off, wont engage when started and hazard lights are flashing really fast. had to unhook battery, 03 windstar, any advice


All the thing's your having problems with are computer controlled .The main light switch is a low voltage device , controlled by the instrument cluster . The instrument cluster is connected to the vehicle control moduel system via the SCP - standard corporate protocol , messages are put out on the data network to other modules to control lighting ! The (REM) rear electronic module an the (FEM) front electronic module .

You could look for a loose connection (ground ) But your best bet take it to a qualified repair shop (ford )

My VW golf TDi won't start since I changed my battery. It started fine for three days and now there is absolutely nothing there when I turn the key not even a click. Please help


1. Do all lights, accessories, central locking system etc in the car all operate normally.

2. Have you tested to see if the car starts when you try jump starting from another vehicle.

3. What warning lights were displaying on the vehicle a day or 2 before you had the problem.

4. Were you having the same starting problems with the old battery that you have just replaced.

2003 VW Golf won't start - battery was charged


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.
