Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.
Is the concern we need to address a no crank concern or the shifter will not come out of park?
I am in central. This is not a concern that can be easily address over the phone. You mentioned it will not crank and will not come out of park, I assume those are intermittent issues?
Do you own a volt meter or test light so we can see which signal the starter relay needs but is not getting?
Can I get the vin$ to see which model engine you have to get the right diagrams?
Here is your starting diagram. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/vwstarter.pdf
For the start relay to work it needs power and ground on the coil side and power on the switch side. Once the coil is energized the switch closes and sends power to the starter motor. Can you confirm or not if the starter relay is getting this signal and does the relay click when trying to start?
