Asked by Dec 01, 2014 at 08:41 PM about the 1995 Volkswagen Cabrio 2 Dr STD Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have read over all the other fuel issues and no start issues. Its on the side of the road in
the dark, I cannot be digging around looking for fuel pump issues. I was hoping maybe
there was an easy trick. It has been running fine up until this.

I would try turning the key to the on and off position several times to try and pressurize the fuel system and then try starting it.

It is now going to sit over night. We were able to get it off the road but it just will not turn over.


I believe those cars have a fuel pump reset switch in the trunk. It's mainly an inertia switch that will shut off the fuel pump in case of accident. Maybe............... look for the switch and see if it tripped offline when you ran out of gas.


Check the fuel filter,may luck up and just be trash in it,if not the pump,may be bad,


And just for the fun of it,check fuse,s and fuel relay,before replacing pump.
