Question about 1996 Volkswagen GTI
I can probably help you figure it out by starting off with a little information.When you turn the key while holding on the brake do you hear a click click?Does the starter turn over but the car won't fire?I would also like to know(sounds like no though)if you have an electrical measure tool?If the starter turns but does not fire,everything is good up to the PCM(powertrain control module).This also needs to be happening so the PCM can tell the fuel pump relay,auto shut-down relay,to activate the fuel injectors and ignition coil.We have to go through a process to eliminate components and go to the next one to check.If it sounds too confusing or more than you want to try,please let me know.If you do not have a regular reliable mechanic,I can tell you a few questions to ask a couple of places if your starter at least turns over.If it does not do at least that,you may be able to fix it yourself.Let me at least know that though.Thanks,Greg
