Hi there, I have a 1.4 Tdi Arosa 2001 plate and having a problem with it not starting. When you put the key in the ignition all the lights come on but when you turn the key to crank it it doesn't do anything. Its not a flat battery, done a search and most people have issues with the glow plug light not turning on but the light comes on when I cycle the ignition. It started to happen first when I ran the car and came back to it soon after, was remedied by pressing the key fob to cycle the locks a few times and some praying. Its now not starting at all. I cant hear the fuel pump priming and can't hear any relay clicks either? Its like there is no power going to the starter? Any help would be much appreciated.
So some may remember I had the issue with the car not starting atall and vagcom have me loads of codes and none helped point me in the direction that wires had become loose lol but one of the codes was about the O2 sensor. Now the wirings all fixed and car starts... Usually! If I leave her in the sun and the car heats up the engine won't fire in just turns over, and like last night I can literally be stuck for 3 hours waiting for it to cool down. Also happens of I get fuel for example and when I got to start it back up because its warm it won't start and have to wait for it to cool down again! I had a problem with the oil breather as it was overly clogged and smoking like a trooper, however that's been cleaned out and still having the issue, also the temp gauge is iffy but being a normal lupo fault I've over looked this, if I stop at lights or something ill notice the temp has dropped right to the bottom then ill start driving again and it'll come back up to the middle. I'm waiting to get it plugged in again but may be a few weeks, any ideas? I've been thinking 02 sensor but starting to doubt myself!

Hi, I'm new to the forum and after searching through I can't seem to find any similar questions. Any help with the following would be great! - It is hard to start the car when cold, it can take a little while and just cuts off. It takes a several attempts before I can actually start it. I was thinking perhaps spark plugs? - My speedo and rev counter only work sometimes and when they do they start at the wrong place so if I get in the car and the speedo is at 40mph then its like the 0mph, when it says 70mph I'm doing 20mph etc... I have heard something about a grounding issue but I have no idea where the ground is for the dials!? Any help I would be really grateful, Cheers, Aaron
