Well, I have a 97 GTI VR6 with 17X,XXX miles, that is parked in the winter. Went to go start it up last week and it would turn over but not fire. I could not hear the fuel pump turn on.
Had some time today, so I:
Checked fuse, good.
Checked relay, good.
Used jumper wire ot power fuel pump, fuel pump primes.
Checked for momentary ground while car is turned on at therminal 3 on relay bord, negative!
Checked continuity from relay board to ECM, good.
So according to the Bentley, my ECM "could possibly" be bad.
I don't want to have to buy a new one...
