Re: Wk2 2012 wont start

Hanen't had a problem but there is a diagnostic tree in the service manual (section 09) on "ENGINE WILL NOT START" that lists possible problems.

On other cars I first perform triage by pouring about 1/2 oz of gasoline into the manifold (or spraying into the throttle body screen), hold throtlle plate about 1/2 open, and crank. If it sputters and maybe runs for a few seconds, you have a fuel problem. If nothing, it is electrical. If it doesn't turn at all you have a different problem. (usual weasle words apply - do not try in your living room, leave to professionals, etc.)

If it cranks over but will not start, it might related is issue with the TIPM. There is a recall on that.

Re: Wk2 2012 wont start

True there is a recall which is not related to the warrenty and does relate to the fuel pump relay.

My GM cars with electric pumps have a fuel pump connector (green female spade) for testing under the hood . Does a WK2 have anything like that ?

Re: Wk2 2012 wont start

Check out this thread discussing the recall. The recall only applies to 2011 models (as far as I know). There is a lot of discussion on the fuel pump relay and bypass. Also DIY info.
TIPM Recall
