No it's fine so with the code p1296 I changed the coolant sensor and nothing and I was told the thermostat can cause the crank no start
VW Mechanic: vwtech0405, VW Technician replied 10 months ago

This fault is for a thermostat its rare for it to cause a no start condition but its possible , do you have fuel pressure while cranking ?
