I Just sold my old VR6 Golf for something a little more economical yet still sporty. Got myself a mk4 1999 1.6 16v sxi in white. I bought it as a non runner as I'm low on the cash front to fix it up and put it back on the road.
So far I've had no joy. I've checked the spark plugs and they all work fine. There is also plenty of fuel on the sparks when I pull them out so I know there is fuel and I know there is a spark. Also if I pop it into gear and turn the engine, it will move forward and backwards so its engaging. However it wont start .
There is a engine management light is on when I start it (or at least try). I know it could be the key but I haven't got a second one to try. The central locking works fine from the key fob so I don't think its that but if someone had some conformation on checking whether its the key without me having to buy a new one, that would be great?
Other than that I'm guessing there are a few sensors I need to check are in working order? Any advice on that would be great as I'm feeling a bit stumped!
