Crank no start on 2000 Volkswagen Cabrio

Thank you so much. Replaced fuel filter, got info on fuel relay & other fuel related. Taking one step at a time. Did take to a mechanic, his first suggestion was replacing the ignition & key at a cost of $1-3,000. I dont see where the problem points to this. Could it be a key problem? I lost the origianl ignition key and have been using a spare key. I see from this website that this could be a problem on other model vehicles. Thanks again.

you will save a lot of money by finding a good shop that specializes in VW. make sure they have VW software. if you DO have a bad key, it will not start, no matter how many parts you throw at the car.
