      Thank you very much! I thought that location 22 was the alarm socket which also has a relay stamped with a 53. This is the one that I replaced. I'm going to run this test tomorrow, and report my...

      I probed and have power at relay socket in the fuse box, just to rule out a bad relay (some fail under load, this one was old & cheap to replace) - put a new one on, nothing - didn't start.

      What...

      Good advice, I just ordered the thin coolant hose $6. I was experiencing the same symptoms and thought that had a bad head gasket, however local auto part lend (me at no cost) a kit to test emission...

      Turn the key to max (crank position) - car does not crank. I figured maybe is the switch? Installed a new one, still not cranking. I probed ignition harness, at solid red cable have 12.23v - jumped...

      I know, can be as simple as a relay...the relay is going to be my next target. Tomorrow going to use the relay from my brothers, same year but a 1997 Golf GTI, to see if it starts.
      Yes the red has...

      Excuse me, no test light does not light up...even when turning the key to the max (crank position).

      I jumped the cable to bypass the clutch pedal switch...probed it- has no juice. Perhaps the alarm relay was failing underload, restricting continuity to the switch on the pedal , as the diagram says...

      If you didn't had any free play issues before doing this job, it is awkward indeed. I would say the screw that shackles the ignition switch housing to the steering column could be loose. I can't...

      If a factory radio, usually you will find small holes on each lateral side of it; use a metal hanger to cut two (or as many as necessary) pieces about 6" long each...insert simultaneously these...

      I left the switch on the pedal for now, however did unplugged the cable and jumped it - turned the key at the ignition and Viola! It didn't cranked [emoji107].

      I probed the cable connecting to the clutch cut off switch and it has no power. I took out and sit in firmly all the relays. My only suspect has an ink stamp of the number 53 - and it sits above,...

      I installed a new ignition switch - so "it can't be that". The harness that plugs in the ignition switch has a fat solid red cable with 12.23v, yet turn the key and nothing happens- no clicks,...

      I am going to clean my FCM tomorrow, as a preventive measure before it acts up (this part new cost more than a Benjamin plus). I might as well add a dab of Vaseline to each connection to keep water...

      Thanks Briano. I suspected it was the computer at first, since the ECM along with crankshaft sensor communicate - to control the fuel injectors pulsations to match sparks at each cylinder. I didn't...

      I installed a new ignition switch yesterday, thus I am ruling out the switch for now.
