Witch solonoid? the one on the passenger fender or the starter its self? Make sure batt terminals are clean. If you have a test light, test wire at starter(key wire) and see if it lights up when key is in start position. The main wire from battery should be tight as well at the starter too.

It shows steering not locked and as a result it does not want to start

does it click when you try to stat it is the battery charged if no click you have either a sticky solonoid, no juice to solonoid or it is bust, for a sticky solonoid (which would be more affected by the cold)you can sometimes get them to go with a couple of lightish taps on its side i used to use the plastic end of a screwdriver then try restarting. the solonoid is normally situated on the side of the starter motor,

Wen i turn the ignition on it only does clic noise

I don't know what year and model VW you have but the starting system is generally the same across the board. When you turn your key to the start position it sends voltage to the starter relay if the car has one, and then on to the starter solonoid which is mounted on the starter motor. The relay and the solonoid will click when power reaces them. You normally don't hear the click because of the engine starting up. it is all instantaneous. Now if you only hear a click it means the power is reaching the relay or solonoid but the starter motor is not working. Have a friend listen in the engine compartment when you try to start the car. If the click is in the engine bay then I would assume the solonoid is working but the starter is not. Therefore you have a defective starter. Sorry for the long explanation but I hope this helps.

Possible Ford Tempo Solonoid problem

Sorry But What you Discribe IS an Indicater that the Starter IS FAILING, You Must Find out if the POWER IS Coming OUT the STARTER SIDE Of the SOLINOID With a TEST LIGHT, If it IS the STARTER is BAD___ SMACK Starter With A Hammer (Unconventional YEA) But Effective in Diagnosing Starter Problem. Also Be SURE of TIGHT MOUNT of Starter As GROUNDING Can ALSO Cause your Symptom

Put in a new starter and all you get is a clicking sound and wont start why wont it start what did i do wrong

Providing the battery is fully charged, and the cables are tight and clean, you may have the wires on wrong. They may be grounding against the block, or on backwards. If that all checks out, maybe you got a dud starter.
