Its the Battery either it needs replaced all together or your terminals are not tight enough. Best way to check that for sure is try turning on your interior light if it is very dim or not on at all REPLACE

I have no idea why your even asking any questions

Replaced the clutch & still has problems---so you want to
buy someone elses problems?


Car won't start-- so you can part with your money & get

Could be electrical or something?

The alternator cable connects to the upper post on the starter solenoid; the same post as the positive battery terminal.

Golf sometimes no power to starter motor


I would check the ignition switch. You can unplug the small wire at the starter, with a test light check and see if power is at the plug when you turn the key to the start postion. If there is power there, you may have a bad starter solenoid. I've had to replace a few on my VW, (86 Scirocco, 91 Jetta GLI)

97 VW Golf Automatic wont start, battery fully charged


MY guess would be that it's the starter, with an automatic transmission, if the car is not in park or neutral, the car wont even attempt to start, so the clicking sound you say you hear rules that out. Now, im not an "expert" or anything just a guy with some general knowlege, so before you do anything i would recommend having it looked at, but if you feel confident enough, the starter is where i would begin, hope this helps, and good luck.

Starting problem with 1995 VW Golf TDi


if there is a clicking noise, its probably the solenoid on the starter. that unit pushes the starter motor forward and also connects the live of the starter.
