Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Hello! There are a couple of items to check before you invest in a new pump; Check the fuel pump fuse...Also. there is a device (look for location in owners manual) called a inertia fuel pump switch. It activates if you "bump" or someone "bumps you.It is designed to kill the fuel pump in the event of a collision. It, I believe, is located inside the car on the drivers side. It has a red button on top that needs to be reset. If not inside look under the hood; it is easy to locate, just look for a bright red button. The 2000 Volkswagen line has had problems with this switch opening up on it's own. If this switch, when reset, solves the problem buy a new switch.It cost around $75 and may be called "fuel pump cut-off switch". If none of these items clear your fault then change the fuel pump; And a fuel filter.
When you rate this solution please leave a short note to let me know how you did.

Check there is power going to the pump, an immobiliser fault would stop that. If there is, take the pump out, you should be able to get it out under the rear seat and check theres fuel in it. A faulty sender unit could show fuel in the tank when there isn't any. Also check that when you flick the ignition you can hear the pump priming itself. If it keeps pointing towards feul pump then it will end up just being conclusive and you have to bite the bullet and buy one.
