Hello people I am new to this forum and after some looking around I can't seem to find any answers for why my 2002 gti 1.8t strugles to turn on

All stock car..the car takes 2-4 tries to turn on the car but once its on the car seems perfect
I checked the codes and I got a po237 turbo boost circuit low code
I took out to the dealer once and they said that a clamp on the turbo wastegate was broken/missing I can't remember exactly because I lost the paper :/

But I also wanted to know if this would cause the car to not turn on. Im new to the turbo scene so im not sure if a clamp would be the only reason it wouldn't turn on right away.

Apreciate all the help. Thanks in advance.

Because it correlates to a manifold/sensor fault it could be part of the problem. But you may want to get your battery tested just in case. Cold cranking amps are pretty vital.

Ok I checked the batery and its fine. What il prob just do is go get the wastegate checked out and probably get some new spark plugs to and see where it goes from there. Thanks for the info hopefully I can get this fixed.
