My 2001 jetta shut off on the highway and now won't start its turning over but there doesn't seem to be fuel going to it my buddy said he heard the pump going when I turned the key on
Speed sensor/crankshaft positioning sensor. They are one in the same. This is a cheap part and easy fix. Thought tough to get to it can all be done without taking the car apart. Look for a how to. There are many. Wife has an 02 jetta GLS 1.8t. Had the same issue. Please head me when I say this is THE option. I spent a lot of money listening to others to fix the inexpensive very DIY issue.
