Question about 2002 Volkswagen Golf
I am still having problems with my Golf.
Solutions offered by Ginko, did not appear to solve my problems, however, I did, as suggested replace the thermostat ( which on removal could be seen to be broken. failed open).
The problem I have now is with instruments, ie.rev counter, fuel gauge, temperature gauge and possibbly speedo, no cruise control.
When starting the car I need to keep my foot on the brake pedal, once running and still with my foot on the brake all instruments appear to working OK. Including the messaging/ radio/Gear select panel in centre of dash. I still get warning messages like seat belts, service now etc.
Foot off brake, all stop working, this is the same when selecting drive. Car appears to be OK when driving but of course I dont have any instrumentation, rev counter Speedo etc. Any ideas please
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.
