    Non starter (with key)

    Hi guys, my first post.
    I'm her because I have a problem, I guess most members begin this way.
    I have a 1996 mk3 Golf hatch that as been pretty trouble free in the year I've owned it, then Two days ago I broke down and had to call the RAA out because it wouldn't start..
    They investigated and said I had no power going to a little spade connection on the solenoid of the starter motor, they guy put 12 Volts to it direct from the battery and it started immediately.

    I've been having a bit of a read and think I have an immobiliser on the car because I have a black ring thing around where the key goes in with a single black wire coming from it, I have absolutely no idea where this goes to, it just disappears under the dash.

    Could this be the the issue, could it be the ignition switch, could it be something else and are there any tests I can do to tell me what's causing this.

    Lifting the bonnet to start the car can be a bit of a pain

    Thanks for reading
