2 clicks on key but no start

Post by andrew ab »

Hi Guys
My wife's Mk3 when turned on the key is very temperamental to the point of unreliable.
1 click heard from under bonnet then another some 10 seconds from engine, this usually fires the car up and away.
However waiting for the 2nd click is a pain and not always fires up.

Is there a relay I need to change, any help please coz I am struggling.
Thanks guys.

Click from under the bonnet - starter relay?
Click from engine - starter motor solenoid.
Check these 2.
