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.

Vw ignition problems

The ignition switch is the main electrical switch in your car. When a key is placed inside the ignition and turned, it is supposed to start your vehicle's engine. you may encounter problems with the ignition switch. The process of fixing it is the same for all vehicles. If your Honda has an automatic transmission, make sure it is in park. The key will not turn in the ignition otherwise.

How to check transmission fluid level

Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

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.
