Turn the ignition on and see if there's a spark if you pop the points apart . Have you got the points to the rite side of the coil ?

ive got one here, check the numbers on yours. out of interest have you tried the distributor? some have a hall sender in them which can fail. my mk2 did this when i had it. volksmagic had a s/h one and sorted the prob.

now i feel like a total noob sad hall sender?

to lazy to read up//// i dont know if i already mentioned that my mums ex had put a spark tester pen on it and there was no spark going through the lead between the dizzy and the ignition coil

try that ignition unit fingummybob and maybe the ignition switch itself. the switch is about £3 from gsf. i unpluged the connector from the back of the switch on the steering colum , pluged the new switch in and tried it that way before taking the origional switch out. it wasnt that on mine it was the dizzy. however i bought the ign system complete almost so if its the same i may have summat here i can send for you to try.
what year is the golf?

im a bit confused , the coil is before the dizzy , if theree no power out the coil then the coil or the power to the coil is to blame , it easy to test the power to the coil with a power meter , if therees power in the rite bit then there will be power at th dizzy , then its the points or the dizzy i fucked ,

come one goerge or baz , help this poor chap before i make it more complicated ,

sod it im moving this to chat , we will sort this if it kills us

new can o worms there. i would of thought that would cut the ignition system full stop and prob not even turn over the engine.
i could be wrong though.

it normally does, like if i dont put the fob in to 'deactivate it' it does nothing but beep and then after 5 seconds the alarm would go off but however, someone mentioned that it could be causing it not to spark, but i dunno, the guy seemed a bit lazy minded, qualified but not experienced type of guy me thinks
