Hi there, could you please offer advice on the following problems on my 1.6 Golf automatic.
First indication of problems was a warning light on dash which shows a problem with the ESP. Dash switch not working. This some times does not come on straightaway other time it remains on after starting
The next problem was another warning light on dash (picture of engine).

Re: 4 Faults detected on engine diagnostics check
Clear the trouble codes with a scanner and see if they come back, when faced with many codes this is the best thing to do, the codes may have been set during some kind of work being done on the car, the real hard faults will return and switch on the light if the problem is still present this will occur in about 10-15 miles of mixed driving, like city and highway, this is called a normal drive cycle. Let me know what codes return if any at my email address of firstname.lastname@example.org for further free help with this.

Check your owners manual for the number 27 fuse to see what it is. Checking online I see it as a 15 Amp, Under hoop lamp, Map lights, Glove box lamp, Dome lamp, Visor lamps, Accessory delay, Dimmer switch illum. and 4x4 system. check each one to see if the bulb is blown but left on, at least if it's a light. It that doesn't do it, research how to check accessory delay and 4x4 system.
Hi. You have misfires on cylinders 4, 5 and 6. If there are no faults on cylinder 1, 2 and 3 then I would check the power to the left bank injectors. Also check spark plugs and ht leads. If there are running issues then this should be an easy fix. If the faults are very intermitant then it can be a bit tricky to isolate.
If the check engine light stayed off then that means that those errors are not present at this time. It is not un common to have intermittent faults but I would not preced any further until the light comes back on. Then re-scan the code see which are to begin diagnostics.
The "check engine light" or MIL (malfunction indicator lamp) is telling you that the power train computer is holding a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) in memory. These codes set when a problem with one of the many engine sensors is detected or engine parameters exceed expected programmed limits. A code reader tool is needed to read out these codes and explain the definitions. Most major auto parts stores will read out your codes for free.
Even if your car is running fine, do not ignore this light. In many states, your car will not pass an emissions test with the light on. Many faults that will set codes are related to proper emissions control. But many faults that cause emissions problems also cause poor gas mileage. So if you ignore the light you may very well be wasting precious gas dollars.
