  1. MKIV GTI
    I have a 2001 1.8 GTI, and chasing some electrical gremlins. Everything works until you either flash the high beams, or put the high beams on, then the engine either reduces to 1100 rpm and won't rev or drop below that, or it will outright stop. After that, there is a no crank condition but all...
  2. MKV GTI
    So as I was pulling in to park at school this morning my car went haywire. My ABS, power steering (red), and traction control lights came on. Along with that my radio and wipers quit working. I was in drive but the car acted like it was in neutral, just coasting. Once I got into a parking...

  4. MKIII GTI
    I have this problem with my GTI. My wipers don't work at all. The front ones don't wipe when the switch is moved up and down, and the back wiper doesn't wipe when the switch is pressed forward. I thought my turn signal switch might have something to do with this because it's having problems...
  5. MKV GTI
    Believe it or not, my '07 Mk.V GTI (4-door, stick) has 215K miles on it, every one of which I put on it, so I know my car. Lately, I've had a parasitic battery drain issue; if it sits for a couple of days, the battery dies. I've done the obvious, i.e. replaced the battery, etc. I've tried my...
  6. MKVI GTI
    Okay, so I went out to my car to read the Owners Manual and played around with the exterior lights a little bit. When I got out of the car and pressed the lock button on the key fab the alarm did not chirp but it did lock and set off the flashing red alarm light. What's weird is all of the...
  7. MKV GTI
    Last night my Bulb Malfunction light came on saying "low beam bulb malfunction". I stopped to check and my passenger side headlight was out. I stopped at an Advance Auto to see if they had a replacement, but they were shut. When I got back in my car and started it up the light started working...
  8. MKIV GTI
    I got a 2008 GTI 2 years ago. It was great until recently. Ive done other fixes in the past, PCV changed, replaced HID bulbs with 8k ones... other things. I find the car difficult to work on. Anyhow - I am hoping someone can help with with my issues. About 2-3 weeks ago I started getting...
  9. MKII GTI
    A friend of mine picked up a 91 MKII GTI the other day without having me go with him. The car has a couple electrical issues, the turn signals don't work both in the cluster and the exterior. Also his speedometer doesn't work. I am unfamiliar with the GTI's and was wondering if any of you savvy...
  10. VW GTI
    Today, I disconnected my battery to reset my computer (CAI messed with the "check engine" light) Ever since I reconnected the battery I've had a couple problems. 1) My windows and sun roof won't open. 2) My car will not lock/unlock with the clicker, but it will arm the alarm. 3) I am not...
  11. MKIV GTI
    Hey Guys, I have a 2001 VW GTI MKIV 1.8t, bazooka tube 220w sub/amp, dual head unit and interior neons. Nothing is run to the battery, everything is tapped in with fuses, etc. I haven't had any problem until the past few months, my car's been acting kind of funny. At night time, I will be...
