Question about 1995 Volkswagen Cabrio
Now normally on these cars its the ignition switch that plays up ,now what i would do is to run a wire direct from the starter motor solonoid ,small wire on the starter motor and leave enough slack so it can be tied to the battery cable on the positive terminal ,then if it doesnt start on the key ,turn ignition on and touch wire to + terminal and it will start ,Now as for the cause ?' well you have stated you changed some parts but was this new or scrapyard parts ,now also their is a starter relay somewhere ,i think its in the fuse box next to the battery ?' but honestly cannot remember ,also this fuse box by the battery is renouned for having dodgy connections when it get old ,so check them all out ,and the ally fuses corrode through as well .but if all else fails then you still have the direct feed ,Also remember that from 1992 these vehicles were fitted with security keys (chipped) well here in europe anyway as we must have more thieves here .check the engine to chassis earth cable as well ,they dont often go wrong but they can have a high resistance which would cause a similar problem.

You may have enough battery volts but not enough amps to crank the engine over. First double check all your battery cables to make sure they are all very clean and tight. If they are, try tapping on the solenoid to see if it's stuck. If it doesn't make a difference, check the ignition wire form ignition to the solenoid. A cracked wire can also cause this. Most part stores will test the battery for free.

IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE
can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel
a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping
then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn
steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.
wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after
that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.
if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and
key has to be manually removed.
