Doesn't start. Everything comes on but it don't turn over. No clicking, no noise. Automatic transmission, box type, 2.0 engine.

@deviousdawny , is the security light on, your problem also could be safety neutral switch, ignition switch faulty, did you find and replace the relay, etc.

Turn ignition to on position and shift to neutral and try and start and then slam the gear shift back to park and try to start, If this works the safety neutral switch needs adjusted or replaced. It may be time to have a good technician to have a look, diagnose and estimate repair. Good luck.

@deviousdawny , I also got thinking about the relay you purchased and was thinking perhaps the parts store could of errored and gave you the wrong part.

Dawn I realize that you asked answered your own question. But you picked a poor answer (your own) as a solution. If you don't get the answer you need, it is best not to accept an answer as people then stop looking at the question. Try unaccepting this answer and clarifying your question to get something that actually fixes the issue.

Dawn, 1999 Jetta neutral position switch or the starter interlock relay is up under the dashboard on a panel full of relays, may have to remove the lower dash trim. Should see it through the gap between the fuse panel and the dashboard.

Jetta equipped with manual transmission, the relay position is third from the left on the upper row and auto transmission equipped, the relay is third from the right on the bottom row. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
