You might have a fuel pump problem. the switch to start the pump is located in the drivers side door handle and leads to a sensor in the engine. If it is any of these parts you won't know til you take it in. Beetle strikes again!
Hi John,
Have you checked for any trouble codes stored in the engine control module? Have you double checked everything you removed and re-installed while replacing the starter?
