Won't start

hey whats up im new to the forum and bought a 2003 jetta about three weeks ago. After buying my jetta my car will sometimes not start. After it happened the first time i took it to the shop and they said it was my impulse sender so it was replaced last week. However, a week later the same problem happened when i try and start the car it just gives a little revving sound but never starts up. Any ideas to why it wont start up???? Please help. One Arm Steve

wont start

new to the site. Just bought a 95 Jetta. Wouldnt shift until 4000 rpm. followed some advice to put key in run position and hold gas pedal down for 5 seconds. Car would only spin over and not start after that. I disconnected the battery and now the antitheft wont turn off...horn blows and car still wont start. wtf?
