My 2002 auto Jetta (2.0L) wont crank or turnover at all. I have a brand new battery and everything seems to power up ok. I checked terminal 50 at the solenoid and it was receiving 12.6 V when turning the key. Any recommendations on what else to check or is it time to just replace the starter?

I had the battery out for a few days and read something on a website about the computer needing to be reprogrammed to start but not sure if that has anything to do with it or if this has any truth to it.

Any help??? thanks

Hit it with a hammer as someone tries to start it. If it starts, replace it.
and if it doesnt start after hitting it with the hammer and the postive wire going to it is warm or hot to the touch the starter is bad
