Sounds like the starter motor isn't releasing bendix spring ,try hitting starter firmly but carefully a few times, then try starting may get you going ,if does get a new starter.Replacing the battery with a bigger size isn't a good idea what was the difference in amp hour out put ?

If spark is good, it could be fuel pump or filter, or even your solenoid. Message me with more info. does it:
1. Try to start? - Fuel issue, or battery issue?
2. Click - Battery issue
3. Nothing? - Solenoid issue

SOURCE: vw polo electrical problem

the starting issue is probally down to the throttle housing being al carboned up.take it of and get it spotless,a toothbrush and some solvent is good.make sure you clean around where the butterly sits and the edges of the butterfly itself,dont just look from the top and think its looks ok take it off.

SOURCE: 2001 gmc jimmy not starting

Did they do a fuel pressure pressure test to determine that its fuel pump? And if so what was the p.s.i.?It should be around 55 to 60 p.s.i. a few pounds under 55 p.s.i. Pump needs replaced, Your shop should have chk. this when it was there the first time. Did they by chance chg. the fuel filter, that can hinder it from starting too.

SOURCE: vw polo 1.4 petrol stater just clicks

First of all, basic things to check is the battery. Is the battery ampage sufficient for your car? Re-check connections.

The clicking you hear is the solenoid in the starter motor. Maybe attempt to bridge the connection yourself to rule out solenoid problems.

When it was fitted, are you sure it was properly aligned? Sometimes with these things, it's best to take it out and start again.

I have a 2001 1.4 polo playa. It started fine and the following morning nothing. The starter doesnt turn over and does nothing when you turn it, help pls. The battery is fine


If the battery is fine , then it will either be a faulty starter motor or a problem with the ignition switch, did you have the battery checked for Amperage ? if you just were able to power the lights etc this could still mean the battery isn't holding enough charge, another reason for a battery fault would be the alternator not charging at the correct rate, especially at night when using lights, heater if cold , all these will take charge away from battery if alternator fault/drive belt to loose .Have you tried to jump start the vehicle , if it starts with a jump start then definately a problem with the battery/charging system, hope this helps

'06 VW Polo cooling fan not working - fuse inside fine - fuse on top of battery (5) blown - put in new one and blown again - need bigger size or what?


Don't put in a bigger size. If it blew once, it means something inside the fan has failed. Take a look for any obvious shorts in the wires: Failing that, Take out the fan, and see if it works. Most likely the short is right at the connector, where it vibrates out the most.
