So engine is turning but it will not crank?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I guess so, I'm not certain what those terms mean. But yeah it makes the normal sound that it always does when I turn the key it just never... finishes turning on?

Could you possibly take a picture of the fuse panel and attach it? Is your Passat the V6? How far did you drive it before pulling over and checking fuses, was it only for a minute or so?Does the check engine light come on when you turn the key to the on position?
