I need help! I have a 1996 vw Jetta! Wont start and wont crank! Dash lights come on but when I turn the key nothing happens! What should I check?


I would check to see if you are getting power to the small wire on the starter solenoid when you turn the key to the starting postion. If you do, the starter is bad. If not, you probably have a bad ignition switch.

1996 VW jetta will not start


You vehicle works off a standard ignition key which links to a electrical ignition switch. The wire from the switch goes to the starter solenoid. That wire has a fusable link which operates like a fuse. If to many amps surge through this wire it will melt down inside the insulation. The insulation will not melt away causing a headache to most novice mechcanics. Pull on the solenoid wire a few inches away from the solenoid and see if it stretches at least 1/8 of an inch or more. If it does it has an open stopping the continuity to the positive lug to the solenoid preventing it to work. Any auto parts store sells these fusable links. The counterperson will suggest the crimping supplies and tools needed to purchase for this repair

1996 VW Jetta wont start


Check to see if it's getting gas or spray some starter fluid into intake. If it fires, change fuel filter first and try it without starter fluid. If it doesn't start then change fuel pump.
