My 1996 VWGOLF wouldnt start back after the check engine light was on for about 60 miles, once I cut it off it would not turn over. Original diagnostic was the cam shaft position sensor in the distributor...


no compression sounds like the cam belt to me but then iam not a expert on every car thats made ,but the the teeth could have split on the instep on the cam belt so its lost a couple of teeth and its now out of time and possible the valves are crunched

It wont turn over


Coil, ignition fuse, or a bad rotor/cap issue.

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)

1996 S-10 cranks but no fire


did you check to see if fuel pump is pumping. fuel filter isnt clogged is it? but you're sure there is no spark. because if there is spark it could be air flow problems.
and you changed the ignition switch so that's not it, how about the starter. is there any noise coming from the starter when you turn key? if it isn't lined up right.
there has to be spark if you did what you said take off a wire at night and try it . electricity to start goes, ign switch battery starter(is there a relay on s10s cant remember), the alternator is here also.to coil/distributor to wires to plugs to gasoline

also it could be the wires coming from the battery , check them for corrosion. if they are really corroded could be problem. and make sure your ground is good contact. ive seen corrosion inside wires causing no spark.
just a few ideas to check.
