I have a 2ltre 2001 Bora which turns over when starting but won,t fire from cold start. However, when I managed to fire after the 9th attempt and gave it a run, then stopped and turned it over again, it fired first time and every subsequent turn during the first 1 hr.Once I left it standing all day and tried to start it from cold, same problem, it will not fire. Can you suggest possibe causes of fault.

The problem is that you have to push the clutch all the way in to get the starter to fire. There must be a switch or something that lets the ignition fire the starter. Well, the starter won't fire now--there were a couple of times that happened---but if i pushed forcfully down on the clutch it would start. That only happened a couple of times and now it won't turn over. I have power to everything else when i turn the ignition on. if there is a switch or something that allows the starter to turn

For the past two weeks, if you turned the key to start the car, nothing would happen. Lights would go on, radio would go on but nothing else. No noise; just dead air. I would have to take the key out and rattle the steering wheel about 15x and then it would fire up about every 1 in 15. Then suddenly out of nowhere, it started firing up every time but now the turn signal blinkers are dead and won't turn on. Nothing. Checked the fuse but it is still good. Any idea on turn signal going d

Sometimes my 2004 chrysler 300M won't start. It feels like I didn't "hit it" just right when turning the key - like I was in too big of a hurry. (But I'm not sure if it is the car or me) Then when I try to start it, it will turn over but not fire up. The first couple of times it would start by the 3rd try. One time it started up when I turned the wheel to the left. This last time I couldn't get it to start, let it sit for 4 hours and then it fired right up. Don't know what to think????

It more than likely is a fuel pump, or relay. Yes you could scan it, but if unable to, you need to go by the elimination process. Check fuses/relays first, then it will almost definately be the pump. ... 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
