Hello, today i was driving my Golf 5 and suddenly it stalled without any sound or sign, i only noticed it becouse rmp was on 0 and battery sign lighten up on dashboard. After that, car turns starter, but it wont start up. Any suggesions? I have vcds cable but dont know where to start. Car was running and starting perfectly

What engine is in this car?
When you say the starter turns the engine, is it a normal sounding crank or is it much faster?
Does the car have fuel?
Is this gas or diesel?

I would say its cranking faster but not sure. Its diesel engine, i suspect fuel pump, i think i dont hear pump activating after key turn. How can i check if the pump is faulty or its fuel pump relay that is faulty

So what are the Dtc you have for the engine? Based on your attachment you have got Dtc in 3 or 4 modules.

For engine i get glow plug cylinder error for 2 and 4 cylinders as far as i remember but these two errors was months ago so i dont know if it could possibly caused trouble suddenly

The glow plug issue would only make it more difficult to start when cold.

Does the fuel pump prime when you open the drivers door/turn the key to on but not crank?
When you open the drivers door/turn the key you should hear a buzz/whine from the rear seat area.

I dont hear buzz, but i remember it buzzing when the car was ok. Now is i got to figure out is it fuel pump, pump relay or other things causing it to not turn on
