  1. Golf V & Jetta V
    09 JETTA 2.5 SE I’ve read that this problem could be due to the wires between the car and the driver door.

  2. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    My battery light is flickering when I accelerate or if I sit still and press my gas pedal. I noticed a drop in acceleration speed as well.

  7. TT (Mk1, a4 chassis)
