Ive got a Jetta 2 CSI and had the same trouble. I then discovered that my coldstart packed up, wich you cant even get at the agents anymore. So If you are in the Benoni area I can fix it for you for 'n reasonable price, and you won't have that trouble any longer. Mine is still starting by just touching the key. 0829484343

Just spinning the engine will not fix the problem. You need to know whether you are getting fuel or whether you are getting spark.
The fuel is easy. Get a can of starting fluid and briefly spray into the air cleaner 1 squirt and then try to crank the vehicle. If there is an attempt to run, you have fuel problems. If it does not attempt to run try 1 more squirt. No run means you have no spark.
It can mean there is a problem with the firing system, like timing belts or chain, or a dead coil. Your car may have Relays for both the fuel pump and the ignition.
Go to Autozone.com and register your car for free, then download the chassis wiring diagrams and fusebox layouts. Find the Relays. If you have no fuel, check the fuel relay. If you have no spark, check the Ignition relay. On American cars, the horn relay is often the same part number as the Ignition relay or the Fuelpump relay and can be switched.
The horn can be used as a test for the other 2 relays to find the bad one.
I hope my solution is helpful.
