How did this issue start ??

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
The brake lights were stuck on so we replaced the brake switch. After that the car wouldn't start. We replaced the battery and the car still won't start
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 12 months ago.

If you provide the battery direct power with a jumper straight to the battery under the seat do you get power back on ??

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
There's power to the car even without the car being hooked up to another car, but yes we've tried that too. It's like it's dead. Lights and everything come on but when you turn the key inside lights and everything come on it just doesn't crank or turn on even to where you can turn the radio on or see the gauges move

Ok if you have power while cranking where everything works inside the next step is to check and see if you have power going to the starter solenoid while cranking

There's no crank at all...
