If the cigar lighter is starting to smoke then there must be short in it somewhere. I would disconnect cigar lighter and see if that makes any difference.
If it does then replace the cigar lighter.

My 1993 VW Golf, will not turn over at all.


run fault codes and check for cam/crank position sensor. Check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt0 After changing the battery you should use a code reader to reset the CPU as the program may be corrupted and the Immobiliser is stopping it from starting.

1997 VW Golf Cigarette Lighter Fuse Location


Thanks, I found the fuses I was looking for. Just one note - if your fuse box is like the one in my Golf, there's a little lever on the left hand side that allows you to release the fuse box from the stand and drop it down for easier access.

Could be a head gasket leak as white smoke is a sign of water. I would suggest having it checked. It doesnt take alot to cause white smoke.

Ciggarette lighter stops working when headlights turned on


Sounds like maybey someone has replaced the lighter before, and has somehow tied the ground wire into the headlight switch. Short of going through the wiring harness between the lighter and switch, I would just say run a new ground wire and get a fuse tap for the power. This will completely isolate the lighter from the rest of the electrical system. Let me know if this helps :)

Rear Window Switch Problem with Mk3 VW Golf 1.9TD


i had the same problem. After checking the window motor was not the problem i then checked the wiring harnes in the door. I beeped out all the connectors to make sure there were no broken wires and cleaned up all the contacts. The main connector looked quite corroded. I sprayed all the connectors with rust check and reassembled. The window is working fine now

1993 vw golf wont start


You're ignition switch has gone bad. This is very common on these cars. You have to remove the steering wheel and column covers to do this though.
