This may be due to a bad control module but i would need more info. after it stallls will it start right back up or do you have to wait a while. if it takes a while for it to start up then you will need to check and see if its lacking fuel or spark. good luck.

I'm going to assume it was running before the tuneup.
What did you replace, and what have you checked ?
Spark to the plugs ? Fuel pressure ?

95 jetta wont start unless you pop start it i changed the starter i have all the power just when i turn the key nothing


check your fuses under the hood and under the dash
check polarity of battery (if you unhooked booth leads)
is the battery any good?
you probly conected the leads to the starter incorectly (recheck them)

(the following asume your tur n key ignition system is functioning properly)
to test your tur n key system simply hook up a test light to the small lead running to the starter cylynoid "while the wire is disconected" and have a friend turn the ignition over. [dont furget to test the test light first lol]

or even got the wrong starter completly (usaly a store problem)
did you " bench test" the new/used starter befor installing it ?
iv goten brand new starters doa

is the ground strap hooked up ? is there corosian on the battery posts or any of the high amperage conections?

is the cylynoid on the starter or somewhere else under the hood?
cautiously try to bypass the cylynoid ie run a hot wire to the small lead on the cylynoid
(this can usaly be done by jumping from the main red wire on the starter to the hot lead of the cylynoid)

notes: when bypassing the ingnition system (jumping the cylynoid)
DO NOT have the ignition in the on postion and it is best to remove the lead from the cylynoid (incase of a short in the wire's some place)

if nothing remove the large red wire on the cylynoid and touch it directly to the starter lead itself (there will be a fair amount of spark when doing this its normal) but make shur you are conecting to the starter lead and not a gound point as this will cause exsesive sparking that isn't good
dose the starter tur n the engine over
back track untill you find the fault be it starter itself,cyclynoid,wiring,blown fuse,corosion,bad battery,

still cant find the problem take it to a shop!
hope i helped yah
