Hey there. Your best bet is to start by checking for spark and fuel. From my experience with VW's of the early 2000's, failing fuel pumps are a typical problem. If you need help with a diagnosis, a certified pro from YourMechanic can guide with no-start inspection and follow through with proper repairs.
