when in garage.
Maybe it just didn't like the husband starting her since he calls her the sh--box!
Have been known to use the same term as a generic name for all vw.
While issue still exhibits....
Check battery voltage..
If over about 12.4V..
Run a jumper lead( normal battery jump starting type) from negative battery terminal to the engine case. ( fan housing or bell housing) ensure a good bite.
Then attempt start.
If no difference run a lighter wire
( about 3-4 mm ) with terminal from ignition wire on starter.( pull the normal one off. Its a spade connection)
With car out of gear and ign turned off , brake on. Touch other end of the small wire ti positive on battery.
Hopefully it turns over. ( it will not start)
Both tests are bypasses ti find where prob lies.
Start if process
I will try this next week when Im back from down the coast. Thanks for the advice.
