My mark v golf is having issues. The car seems fine with key in, and when ignition turned on its still okay, then when you go to start it, there is almost clicking noises coming from the steering column area. The car doesnt even attempt to turn over, and all the electrical systems wont work. Any ideas?

It's a common problem on VW's. It's time to change the ignition key and cylinder, which is a relatively simple task if you're handy. If you wait until the key won't turn to the "start" position, you'll be in for a much bigger repair.

Here are the instructions.
