94 Jettas have a anti-theft kill switch. It can mimik the starter or alternator. Lock all the doors with them closed, then unlock the drivers side with the key. Wait about two min then try cranking it. Should start up instantly, if not reset the computer.

I just experienced the same problem and it turns out its the timing belt. I've never heard of this before, but when I pulled the cover off the belt was broken. Not sure if any other problems exist (still need to make the repair), but thought I'd share.

If you have power when you turn your key. Then you need to check your starter solenoid. If you don’t check your battery first. There is no way to start your car without your starter. And you will have to remove it to test it.

The only other classic problem for this series is a defective ignition switch. These were a cheap plastic unit that would fail electrically after a decade or so. Beyond that, you'll need a sharp VW mechanic, in my opinion. Do you have the factory manual? There are flow charts within for no spark/start condition.

VW Jetta alarm malfunction


Go to your local junk or scrapyard and pull them yourself. The dealer charges an average of 90-100 dollars an hour. So a lot of the money they quoted you for was probably for labor
