Anyone have any ideas on what might cause my car not to start. Ive changed the batt. and she will start with a jump and run then once i pull the key she will not start back up. Iam not sure if its the starter or the alternator but with previous cars Ive ownd if the alternator is bad then it wont let the car run and I can drive till I stop and turn the ignition off then she dies. All of my connections are clean and good but I cant figure this one out.Thanks <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Probably a bad ignition tumbler (the key) these go bad

Try jiggling the key after you are able to start it and see if this has any effect on the car at all...electrical, like the radio, lights, the engine running. JRL is right...a common issue with these cars.
