What you have is a battery drain.. these can be very difficult to track down. Plug in the battery, on the + side, and put a test light on the - side (----battery cable ------->test lead<--------(battery)) Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out, you found the fuse the drain is on, now you have to look at a wiring diagram and pinpoint where the drain is coming from..

Easier method.. make sure all your doors are shut, trunks shut.. all the lights are off etc..

1996 golf gti wont fire up


what about checking the ignition or the fuel pump relay? i wouldnt try touching the positive and negative leads together even after five minutes as the ciruit has capacitors and inductors in them and this could cause damage to the electronics.if there's no fuel and no spark it sounds like a common fault. try disconnecting your immobiliser behind the glove box (most of the mk3's starts with them disconnected)

Gitting gti lights


The wiring is different, if your Golf had headlights with H4 bulbs then changing to high beam turns dip off. The GTi has separate dip and high lights, on high beam dip stays on (all 4 bulbs on).

VW Golf MK3 wont start


fuel relay could be faulty. i think its number 30 or 167 in the fuse box under the driver side steering. it could also be the fuel pump or connector on the fuel pump under the black metal plate under your trunk carpet. you could try manually throwing in fuel into the intake to make sure its not your car's ecu or ignition system. if it starts and stays running it could be what took me a few months to discover after i had intermittent problems. there a small vacuum hose from the fifth injector on a 1997 mk3 gti (4 cylinder) that connects to the injector rail. i think its some kind of activation for the electronic injectors. my pipe was broken and i just cut it and my car hasnt been better since! i know this is an old question but i hope it helps someone out there!
