Yes, but don't get starter "solenoid" confused with starter "relay". The circuit should go from the starter switch to the fuse box, to the relay. Then the circuit will either go to the start solenoid or a secondary, larger relay. I am not certain about VW, but many manufacturers are using two switching relays in order to "step up" the load capacity. This is so the actual key-switch only has to control a tiny load, which makes it last longer. If you do not have an open fuse link, it is time to find a wiring diagram. In my experience, I have always found that if one calls the service manager at the dealership, he/she is happy to provide a photocopy of a wiring diagram. The diagram will make it clear if there is one or two switching relays, and even what color the wires are and so on. I hope this is helpful. Good luck. Don
For the 1998 VW Jetta: I do not know if you have the 2.0L SOHC In-Line 4-Cylinder or the 2.8L DOHC V-6; however I have included both below. The 2.0L has a ture Distributor Cap and the 2.8L has an Ignition Coil.
For the 2.0L SOHC In-Line 4-Cylinder: Firing Order: 1-3-4-2 Cylinders ........(back)......... |...1...2...3...4...|
..(back) (+)..1 2..........3
For the 2.8L DOHC V-6: Firing Order: 1-5-3-6-2-4 Cylinders: .......(back).......
|.1....3....5....| |....2....4....6.| Ignition Coil Connections (back)
|.4..3.| |.6..1.| (front)

Its to the right of the water pump towards the bottom of the engine.. Follow your lower radiator hose. Make sure to get some G12 coolant from VW before you do it. If you mix the coolants they turn into a gel that will cause you to overheat.
Hi - I don't know the answer off hand but there is just a chance you could do a Sherlock Holmes job yourself, because many of the relays have unique pin layouts and cannot fit into the wrong place. The numbers may be misleading - on my Sharan some of the relays have numbers which are sideways or upside down when correctly installed! If you find that one relay will go into more than one socket, or more than one relay will go into one socket then you will need further help, but if there is, say, a five pin relay and only one five pin socket, it's got to be right, hasn't it?
