220000km 1.8t manual normally runs great, took on a road trip, on my way home, 5th gear cruise control, engine lost power and i pulled over, came to the conclusion its the fuel pump, got power and would turn over and sputter a bit then stop. got it towed home, now it will not turn over at all, i can manually crank over the starter by reaching underneath, I replaced the ignition switch and im still not getting any cranking

figured it out, the number 12 relay was not clipped in all the way, maybe previous owner or somthing was mucking with them, i bought this car off a younger kid for pretty cheap, its pretty modified, so through the whole thing i got to clean up alot of wireing mess

I had similar results when the MAS airflow sensor failed. Just lost power and sporadic starts. Replaced and instantly healthy
