    I am in the process of retrofitting lane keep assist, an auto dimming mirror, and a rain/light/humidity sensor. Each one of those must be connected to a fuse. One of the fuses that is used by one of the three things I just mentioned is already occupied. This is expected, as VW lists multiple...

    Hey guys, I did peruse all the similar threads (that I found) but nothing seemed to match. 2015 FWD SEL Began as periodic issues with vehicle recognizing key (even when held to the spot on the column) and the car randomly locking/unlocking while driving. Things became drastically worse within...

    I have recently bought a 1986 mk2 Golf, 1,6, and the wiper speeds seem a little fast, compared to what I would expect. Correct me if I'm completely wrong here, but shouldn't there be a "slow" (intermittened), "fast "and "faster" wiper speed on the front wipers. It seems like the stalk wants to...

    Hello VW Vortex. I have used this forum for several years and finally decided to join because I have a real interesting one for the group. I just bought a house and 1st day of vacation (to unpack and get my life sorted) and as usual my VW breaks as soon as I start a vacation... this has...

    09 JETTA SE 2.5 I was gifted some LEDs that I wanted to try on my low beams. However, I’m having some problems connecting them as this is my first VW. Not sure if I need an adapter for these LEDs or there is a way to connect them without them.

    My alternator is going out on my 2005 1.8t and I want to upgrade the alternator to the 120 amp since they are basically the same price. I have noticed in the past that if I try and roll up my windows that the headlights dim some and I recently added R32 headlights to my car so now i have a fog...

    09 Jetta 2.5 SE I’m curious why the backlight that shows me how much gas I have turned off, as well as the engine temp backlight. They all used to be lit at some point, now they barely come on. How could I fix this?

    2004 Golf, 2.0L gasoline, BEV engine, 5 speed manual, 211k miles Guys I am losing my mind. TL;DR at bottom. Several days ago, my AC compressor started short cycling. The clutch would engage and then disengage over and over about once per second. We checked it, it was 1.06 lbs (supposed to be...

    I bought a 1986 MK2 diesel project car a few days back, and got it running today! I took it out on a test drive and when I stopped it, the engine quit out on me and I couldn't get it to start. I realize now, that this was because the power wire connected to the fuel pump assembly had come off...

    Hello all, My MK2 failed inspection due to the reverse lights not working. Did some testing and found out that there's a short somewhere in the wiring (the fuse blows every time the car is shifted into reverse.) How should I go about finding where the short is? I've looked at the wiring diagram...

    I was installing an aftermarket head unit into my 2015 Passat. All was fine until unit randomly shut off while driving. Completely took it apart, tested aftermarket with separate power supply and it still works, but the harness will not power it now. Returned stock radio, it too will NOT...

    I just bought a new replacement set of D1S bulbs online when one of mine stopped working. Like a dumbass, I forgot to disconnect the battery before putting it in. I removed the cover of the engine bay fuse box for clearance and pulled the headlight housing partially out of the frame to get the...

    Hello! i just bought a 2012 JSW TDI 6 speed manual (I don't think I can fit more acronyms in there) Drove it back to Minneapolis from Fort Worth, the lot I bought it from had a pretty not good technician. Missing a reverse light, front driver moonroof drain was inside the car and not out the...

    After turning off the vehicle you can hear a humming noise start. I'm guessing its the turbo being cooled. Then it sounds like an electrical issue about a minute later. Watch the video and let me know.

    I had to put a new transmission in my 81 rabbit and there is a sensor on top of the main transmission housing that I cannot find anywhere. Both transmissions are 4 speeds, except the one I'm replacing the old one with is an 82. The 81 transmission has a large plug type connector that has two...

    The only symptoms I have are my brake lights stay on constantly (accy. mode and engine on) and my cruise control does not work (likely a safety feature?). I also got the flashing glow plug symbol, scanned for codes and only got the same codes I always get for my DPF (P0401 and P2002). This is a...
