The intank pump is energised for a few seconds when first switching on ignition then runs continuously once the engine starts.

You could also remove the outlet pipe from the fuel filter then connect a piece of hose to the filter then put the open end into a jam jar switch on and off the ignition a few times, fuel should be pumped into the jar.

A normal engine start the light would come on solid for a few seconds then go out when engine starts, if the light flashes fast when trying to start either immobiliser is active or power supply to ECU fault which is usually relay 109.

Did you use Vagcom/VCDS when you checked for fault codes previously

If the immobiliser is active you may need to try a spare key if you have one
