car won't start on 1998 Volkswagen Beetle

Sometimes my car won't start, the engine won't kick over. I've had this problem for about 10 mths. I've been to 2 mechanics and had fuel pump replaced twice, new starter. major tune up. Recently I took it to the dealer and had the cadilac converter replaced. Today after work it wouldn't start again. Please help!!

It could be the crank trigger, Mine is a 2001 vw beetle and that has happened before to me before I got it fixed, now it rides like a dream.

hey I have a problem with my 2002 diesel turbo VW bug. The car wont start but it cranks. I just recently got the alternator replaced and the fuel filter. The battery is good. The generator and check engine light stays on. The coolant light is malfunction but I don't think that would keep if from starting. I even replaced glow plugs. It hasn't started back since alternator been fixed. I think its an electrical problem but want to have another opinion cuz Its hard finding people who know about diesels. Can you help me!!! Pleasseee!
