Question about 1997 Volkswagen Passat
You need to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail.if pressure is at spec. Check spark at the plugs. Also replace relay for fuel pump if it isn't working. Could be a bad new fuel pump. Pull the codes first.

SOURCE: vw passat 1.8t battery problem?
Either your battery has just given up the ghost,........ Is it the original, and now 10 yrs old ?
Or your Alternator is not charging enough, to replenish what is used.
Have battery tested first, if OK, then the alternator belt tension, and alternator for correct output charging rate.
If all these shows no faults, your starter is then suspect.
Good Luck !
A FixYa would be nice thanks !....John.

it starts from cold because the auto choke is on ,allowing a richer mixture ,try removing the sender unit in the tank and seeing if the connection from the pump to the outlet connection is ok or leaking causing a loss of fuel pressure

If you are unsure what you are doing then please go out and buy a haines workshop manual as these tell you every detail you need to know so that would be your best solution.
Please dont do this work if your unsure what you are doing as you could damage the engine beyond repair so you have been warned;
