    Hi Ginko
    Thanks for your advice, The diagnostic check was carried out by my local garage. They said that ECU relay was OK, I disconnected battery as advised, no change. I have replaced the Themostat unit complete with sensor the old unit was found to be broken on removal. Still have the same engine lights on on the dash were the same and the temperature gauge still not working. The fans come on immediately when ignition key is turned and continue running after switching off However,after checking fuses,I tried to start it again there were no engine management lights on at all, lights etc were working. I eventually managed to get the car started with no management detail showing at all no radio info or outside temp info in centre dashboard,no rev counter However when I apply the brakes the management info comes back including the recv counter, I am getting various messages,like airbag fault emmisions workshop. When put into driv all info disappears again. can anyone Help !!!!

Check all your grounds sounds like you have a loose gorund somewhere.
the fans are coming on becuase ecu is not seeing a signal from temp sensor and cuts them on by default

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 yadawho@astound.net for further free help with this.

Try first unplugging battery cable for ten minutuse, to reset ECM, and do a scan again, there are too many unrelated error codes at the same time

    Replace also the ECU relay.
    If after reconnecting you get same errors, start troubleshooting error 1 (16500), you need to test and replace Engine Coolant Temp. Sensor.
    1C0907379M is related to ABS pump.
    Your post is a bit confused, post the error codes only, you told you got two errors.

My handbrake light keeps flickering on my 1996 vw golf convertible


this could simply be a loose connection on the handbrake switch but this light is also the brake fluid level warning light so it might be a good idea to check the brake fluid level too. also it might be part of the brake pad warning system ane may indicate that the brake pads are nearing replacement it is also required to replace the warning wires with the pads


let me know if this helps

cheers mike

2007 golf tdi has dash warning light.


hi,
i think the light you are seeing is the cruise control indicator. its not faulty , just switched on. the switch is on the indicator stalk. on later model they changed it so this light would only come on when you had set your speed.

VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash


Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

First thing i would check is every ground source I could find . Ground connections at battery, fuse blocks etc. & also check to see if you can find any ground straps running from engine to firewall under hood, or frame to firewall, and make sure all are clean& in good shape, making good contact, and tight.

Hi there,

There's one more thing you can try. On a Mk4 VW, you can reset the service indicator by doing the following:

- With the ignition off, press and hold the tripmeter reset button (on the right side of the dash)
- Turn on your ignition, wait for all the warning lights to come on, then let go of the tripmeter button
- Where your trip distance is normally shown, the display will read "OIL".
- To reset the service interval, turn the clock adjust switch (left side) for about 5 seconds. The trip meter display will change to "---" indicating the code has been reset.

You can verify this by turning the car off and on again. Let me know if that worked out for you.

Hi A J Mae,
Do you mean the traffic indicators,( turn signals) or do you mean the dash board indicator lamps? If it's the dash warning lamp indicators, they work on a fail safe system, when you turn the ignition on before the start position, all the lights will come on untill start up and ten they will go off automatically within a second or two....if they stay on with the engine runnig you have a problem we have not covered here.
That will be your hazard warning switch, the one that will be flashing on the dash with a triangle showing on it....If that doesn't do it it'll be something to do with the anti theft device...get out of the car lock all the doors and then press the button on the key fob

Indicator warning light


Hi fisics,
I believe that corroded terminals in the light cluster can cause the warning light to come on.

But I once read that there is something else, entirely unrelated to the indicators themselves, that can cause this warning. Possibly another system powered through the same fuse or relay...When I remember what it is I will get back to you. It's pretty late here in Scotland. :-)

Cheers, D.

Hi there!

Check the fuses under the dash as the first job. If it is not one of these, it is probably a faulty flasher relay. These are a simple plug- in replacement, but may be behind the fuse panel. This will come out with a couple of screws removed.

If this solves the problem for you, Plese take a moment to rate as fixya! Thanks.
