My old lady's 99 vw 2.0 automatic wont start. It cranks fine and I have fuel going to each cylinder but no fire comming from the coil pack. I have checked the fuses and relays out and theu were ok. I know my next step should be to get the check engine light code read but with out being able to drive the car anywhere I can't do this. Does anybody have any ideas as maybe thete is something obvious I could be overlooking or know of anything I could try to get the car started so I can get the codes read at autozone.

The crank sensor or engine speed sensors in the 2.0l cars are flaky at times. Ignition coils are also problem areas for these engines.

As for a scan tool, you need to purchase one.

You can get something for between $20-$50 that would work fine.

See the first link below in my signature.

I found the engine speed sensor by the oil filter. Is there another sensor located on the front of the engine
