SOURCE: ignition switch for a 74 vw super beetle

The plastic ignition switch is held in with a philips screw. You will need to remove the ignition lock cylinder to get to it. A easy way to check is to unplug the wires going into the back of the lock housing and plug in the new switch, without removing anything.

SOURCE: How do i replace an ignition switch in a 1992 vw

Getting to the ignition switch housing is going to be a task in itself however once you get there you will need to drill a small hole into the houseing of the ignition switch small enough to push a retaining clip down in order to remove the ignition (key). Drilling the hole in the right place is critical, you have to measure approximately 1/4" back from the edge of the lock from the top of the off position (when you remove the key), now measure about 3/16" left of that mark and make a mark, this will be where you will drill a 1/16" hole, becareful not to go deeper than an 1/8" (tip: just drill slowley pull back and check to see if you've got past the housing.
Now look down the cylinder (where you removed the lock from) and you will see a retaining screw which holds the ignition switch, unscrew it and replace. Now put it all back together again.

Draining Battery


Check the alternator. You can observe your interior dome light or the vehicle headlights as you rev the engine. If the light intensity changes with as the RPMs of the engine changes, then you have a faulty alternator.

Car dies, but when I charge the battery the 1990 trans sport van dies. first the interior lights stay on then engine won't turn off so I have to disconect the battery for the van to stop running


The interior light and ignition can not be related. Just coincidence.

The interior light has a 3 position switch, off, on with door switches, and on all the time. So either a door switch is shorted on, or the switch by the lamp is shorted to the always on position.

The ignition is weird but easily diagnosed. First check that the ignition switch itself turns on and off, by using a test light.
If that is normal, then take out the ignition control unit and have a place like Autozone test it. It has a relay the ignition switch is supposed to turn on and off, and it could stick on, even after switch is off.

You have push top of large mirror is asif you were adjusting it to its highest position, then slide the mirror glass up and off, this in turn allows you access to the screws that hold the whole light unit in place which with the aid of some torx bits which are inside mirror casing you can remove. hope this makes sense.

2002 Tahoe engine will not start


Electrical problems are difficult to diagnose in person without testing ...however, it seems that you may be loosing the body ground, causing power loss to the clock and likely the computer as well. As the starter is able to turn the engine, likely there is no problem with engine grounding. While cranking, the accessory side of the ignition switch should remain "hot" otherwise you would loose the clock every time you started it up. If it's not a ground problem, I'd look at the ignition switch itself to make sure it's not dropping power to ignition system while starter is engaged. on some vehicles this can also happen at the starter relay if an ignition bypass is used to provide hotter starting spark.

Hi the coyle is flashin and it says engine work shop on dash


The glow light flashing is an indication that there is fault. Often this is associated with a blown brake bulb or faulty brake switch which is an electronic switch at the base of the brake pedal itself. It often goes faulty on these Golfs causing the glow worm to flash. An odd way to indicate a brake fault I know but there you go - thats the way VW do it! Check the actual bulbs first though. Hope this helps.
