Recently, my VW Betle has not started and later I go back to car and try and it starts. Got new battery, new gear shift cable and mechnic seems to think it is alarm system. Just got out of shop yesterday, it started no problem- this morning went to store and tried to start it again-no start. Opened the car door and closed agin and tried - it started. what can be the problem?
