Won't start how ? When you turn the key to the start position what happens ? Nothing ? This would be a no crank - no start , Now if when you turn the key and the starter engages an spins the engine but does not start an run , this is a engine cranks - no start condition . If you would like help please ask correctly .

It's a gearbox problem. You really can't repair this yourself. Only if you're a professional mechanic

Horn blowing and car wont start


Same problem on 98 Jetta at about 9 yrs of age.  Wiring harness was an expensive job.  Dealer replaced all wires going to doors so that alarm isn't mistakenly triggered by opening doors.  Dealer offered to remove alarm for a few hundred dollars, but couldn't assure us that the key fob would still open the door locks.  Who wants to give up power locks? My hunch is that wire in driver's door breaks with flexing over 9 years.  Could consider replacing short stretches of wire in hinge of drivers door if you're handy with a soldering iron.
