Brad - same thing happened to me at MAR this year. Turned out to be my starter.

Rovers North $299 + shipping

Local Napa $164 + $40 core

Good luck

Perhaps, but you have to check the battery condition and various contacts before you starting replacing starters.

so I know you are all waiting with baited breath regarding the outcome here so here's the scoop...

for future reference, unless I am completely ass backwards (not impossible) the starter motor is located underneath the turbo...

tried checking the voltage going to the starter when turning the key but couldn't detect any going into it thus my current guess is that I've just got a bad relay...

Anyone know where said relay would be hidden?

All the relays for the diesel are with the fuses, some behind the panel. I forget which one is the starter relay. Plus you never know how a Tdi was set up over here, so it could be anywhere if the install was half-assed.

Alright!!! the bloody thing starts now!

So for the kids keeping track at home...

The power wire on the front of the starter was not getting any juice, there is a relay on top of the starting motor that sends power to the start motor. There's a a wire on the back of this relay (you have to take off the pipes into the turbo to reach it) that had a) become corroded and b) fallen off

clean and reconnect and !TaDa!

Thanks again to everyone that helped me with this!!

And to those of you wishing to be stuck in Boulder... come on out and visit at least

My father always told me since I was a kid to start with the highest gear. Is there any reason to do either?

Once I had to start in reverse, so I guess.... when you have to, you have to....
