  1. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hello all, I had an issue with the hall sensor on a MK2 1991 8v GTI, Digifant 1. I ended up ordering a whole new distributor as it was only 50e and seemed a bit easier. It turns out however that I ordered the wrong model as the new one had a vacuum advance and my old one didn't. Now I was...
  2. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hello all, Would someone be able to explain to me the different models of distributors for the MK2? I recently decided to swap mine after the hall sender failed. The website I purchased it from said that the model would fit but it looks like it has some sort of vacuum control in it whereas the...
  3. Phaeton
    I’m at a loss for what to do here. I have a 2005 V8 Phaeton. My wife tried turning it on to move it the other day, problem was, the thing wouldn’t turn on, nor would it relinquish the key. So, the key is stuck in the ignition. Won’t turn on, no lights come on so there’s no power. I’ve tried...
  4. Jetta VII
    2015 Jetta TDI with pushbutton start. No slot in steering column to start engine with the key blade. Has anyone found out what it would take to add a traditional style ignition? Have seen the ignition switches online. What I'd like to do is add it and then enable it in software. The goal is to...

    I have this amazing AGZ V5 mk4, drove like a dream, that V5 engine is as smooth as a slip and slide after bobby spilled his mayo on the way down. But I think I've spent entire weeks, I'm talking full days, trying to figure out how on Earth it is stalling so predictably, and then not starting...

    currently own a mk7.5 GTI DSG with 60k km's, has been flashed with EQT stage 1 ecu and dsg tunes for about 3k, about once every week or two weeks after sitting for no more than 10 hours the car will take several seconds (5-7) to crank and start and then drive perfectly normal with no other...
  7. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hi everyone, I’ve been working on my jetta recently and I can’t get it to start, from what I know it’s getting fuel and it’s cranking but won’t start. My dad and I were testing for any kind of spark and wasn’t able to get one, I even went and got a new ignition coil because we thought that might...
  8. Golf IV R32
    Has anyone here installed this radio on their mk4 r32? ES# 4045187 https://www.ecstuning.com/.../7-android-dvd.../021488brp11/ I noticed mine had a radio installed previously and was direct wired so it will not turn off with the ignition. Is there anything I could do to rectify this?

    Cheers. From the looks of it, this question has been asked a thousand different ways. But nothing sounded like it accurately applied here, so I'll just ask for general ideas and insight. I picked up an 06 Cabrio 1.8T from a guy who said it just needed new keys. I assumed there would be more...
  10. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hey guys! I just was gifted a 2000 gti vr6, and I've decided to make it fast 🤙🏼 When I got the car, the ignition was was all beat to hell. So I thought, RACE CAR SWITCH. Long story short, I got my new switch wired, and took the key cylinder out, and the immobilizer is freaked tf out, and I...

    I drive a MK5 2008 Jetta 2.5(SE) Originally the lock cylinder began to bind while trying to turn the key from Accessory to On but with a bit of wiggling would turn, until it failed, in the On position with the car running. Fixed it, and it broke again... -How to remove/fix old locking...

    Having just checked in with our contacts at the CDC, we can confirm that going into the garage still counts as social distancing. And maybe it’s the little bit of extra distance you need from everyone else in the house. So why not do some work on the car. ECS just published a video running down...

    When Lamborghini first reported its Huracan Performante’s lap time at the Nurburgring, other automakers pretty much all agreed that it was impossible. The Huracan beat a Porsche that cost several times more and made hundreds of hp more around the green hell. So what was the secret? According...
