You're ignition switch has gone bad. This is very common on these cars. You have to remove the steering wheel and column covers to do this though.

run fault codes and check for cam/crank position sensor. Check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt0 After changing the battery you should use a code reader to reset the CPU as the program may be corrupted and the Immobiliser is stopping it from starting.

My VW golf TDi won't start since I changed my battery. It started fine for three days and now there is absolutely nothing there when I turn the key not even a click. Please help


1. Do all lights, accessories, central locking system etc in the car all operate normally.

2. Have you tested to see if the car starts when you try jump starting from another vehicle.

3. What warning lights were displaying on the vehicle a day or 2 before you had the problem.

4. Were you having the same starting problems with the old battery that you have just replaced.

My 1993 vw golf, diesel has been sitting for 3 1/2 yrs. what precautions beside changing the oil and putting some conditioner in the fuel should I take before attempting to get it running again?


hi, if it has been sitting for that long then the chances are the fuel has gone totally flat and wont even fire the engine up so this would need draining, change the fuel filter also.
When you fill the tank with new fuel make sure you use a good fuel additive that will clean all the fuel line out etc this will ensure that any grime has been cleaned out.

After doing this you could give it a try and see if it starts if it dont then check the plugs for signs of corrosion and change if needed.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

2003 VW Golf won't start - battery was charged


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.
