Question about 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio
Low beam head lights will not turn on, only the high beams but only if i manually hold the high beam bar towards me at all times. the car, a '97 volkswagon cabrio, thinks the emergency brake is always engaged so i nev er have daytime running lights or low beams at night. also the blowers for the heat and the rear defrost will only work if i have the high beams on and the ABS light is off. how do i fix the faulty/cross wiring in the car?
The wiring should not be crossed unless it was in a bad accident that pinched wires or a repair was done to it by someone who did not know what they were doing.
You seem to have several issues, if you are mechanically inclined, I would recommend that you begin by replacing both, ignition switch and the turn signal switch, which also activates your high / low beam. Then proceed diagnosing the park brake problem and finally your ABS issue.

SOURCE: high beam/fog light not working
hi have you had the steering wheel off if you have may well of distrurbed the switch housing and needs readjusting to give you the extra space for the pull switch to lock in to the contacts if not most cars are wired so the the fog lights work with a certain position on the light switching circuit example side lights need to be on main beam needs to be selected so i would fix the problem with your light switch first and see if the fog lights work after it may be seperate problems but might not as i said if you have not had the steering wheel off and you have to hold the switch up to get it to work then the switch is faulty yates210456
