    Caddy 2k 1.6 TDi starting issue

    Hi guys hopefully someone can help.
    I have a 2013 Caddy Maxi 1.6 TDi DSG, it starts great in the morning, great after work but if I use it for a short journey (eg. home) then want to use it again 1-2 hours later it will not start.
    The ignition lights come on as normal but the engine will just wind over and over until the battery goes flat, it’s infuriating as I cannot bump start it due to being DSG.
    I saw another thread which suggested it might be the lift pump but how can I check as I get no error codes?
    Many thanks

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    There is only one DIY diagnostic for VAG vehicles VAG-COM\VCDS.

    Sorry crasher, I meant no errors on the MFD, I haven’t had it on VAGCOM.
