Question about 1985 Volkswagen GTI
What was the behavior up to this point? Did the problem start gradually?
Most likely solutions:
(1) Battery is low on charge and under load it cannot energize the solenoid to engage the starter motor to the engine. Check the battery or have it checked. Most places will do this for free.
(2) Starter motor and/or solenoid has failed. Easiest to just replace both.
