Good morning,
The car was shipped from US
I checked again but no spark
Fuel injector pulsing but not supplying to the nozzles
Only one key and i dont have a vw scanner. I have an AutoBoss which i used but not giving me a specific DTC at all

Replace the CKP sensor ,click on link to view pdf file and ckp sensor location,

ckp sensor provide timing signal, if not received by car computer it will stop spark and fuel injector pulse
