Lights working but no cranking is usually a bad electrical connection at the battery/starter, dead starter or starter solenoid. Do not forget to check all of your fuses.

First thing I would do is remove wires from battery and clean them of all corrosion. Also clean the battery where the wires hook up. Hook the wires back up and try starting again...make sure the wires are connected firmly/tight.

Then I would remove the positive battery cable where it meets the starter and clean that connection up real good. Try starting again after back together.

I would then follow the ground (Black Wire) from battery to where it connects to the frame, clean that connection up real good also.

"Cleaning" a connection is taking a wire brush or sandpaper to it to expose nice rust/corrosion free metal.

If cleaning the connections does not work, then remove the starter and take it into your local auto parts store to have it tested for free. The starter will have the starter solenoid connected to it, they will test that also.

By how you described it, I think just cleaning the battery posts/wires will remedy your problem.

SOURCE: 2002 Jetta 1.8t cuts offs sporadically

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Your battery is dead. See if a co-worker can give you a boost, and if the car will run, go to the nearest auto parts store. They will test your battery for free, as well as your alternator (what charges the battery and supplies power to your car while running) and advise you on what the problem actually is.

My car wont crank or make a sound.yet the lights ,horn and radio works fine

I would still check the battery to make sure it has the correct amount of amperage it would need for the starter, if that checks out good, Sounds like you have a ground problem at the starter, power issue at the starter or the starter is bad

while the voltage on the battery may be perfect with a multimeter on a still test , what is the battery voltage when trying to crank the engine. If the voltage drops to below 10 volts you have a battery problem. All headlights dim while cranking and the flatter the battery the greater the dim of the lights. It is bad practice to have the lights on while trying to crank the engine as the current draw for the lights takes power away from the ECM and ignition system
