    97 Golf GL 2.0L
  1. Looking for a little advice if anybody has some. My 1997 Golf 2.0 GL (ABA) has been having starter issues that seem to be of an electrical nature. The car has a new starter (only a few months old) and a new battery (a few weeks old). When I turn the ignition, the car slowly turns over once and then nothing. All the dash lights come on. Also, not on every attempt but on some, the power seems to completely cut out. The clock will reset to 12:00 and the alarm acts as if it thinks the battery wires were detached/re-attached and goes off. I am planning to change the battery wires (I had some awfully deteriorated spark plug wires a few years ago), but I wouldn't be surprised if it is a different issue. Does somebody else has an idea what might be at fault?
