Ok, first check the fuse holder on top of the battery for any blown or melted fuses.

The fuel pump relay powers most of the fuse. Have you tried a new fuel pump relay?

No but will
VW Mechanic: Marty, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

Ok, let me know what happens. My next thought would be a bad ignition switch.

Keep me posted.

28 29-34-32found bad abs small fuse bad. I now have a c.e.light still nopump tried to burp it on starter fluid nothing
VW Mechanic: Marty, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

Fuse 32 gets power directly from the ignition switch. The switch also powers the fuel pump relay which powers fuse 28 and 34. I'd plug in a new ignition switch and see if it will fire.
