Question about 1994 Volkswagen Golf

Open Question

Passenger side exterior lights stay on in my 94 VW Golf.

My passenger side light are staying on all the time. I removed the fuse that corresponds to them to no avail. Then I started systematically removing fuses one by one to see if they would go out, and lo and behold, fuse #21 (interior lights, power locks, cigarette lighter) comes out and they went off. With this fuse out they still function normally for everything else. I don't know if this matters, but my hatch is constantly registering open, and a previous owner took out the cargo light in the back so it wouldn't drain the battery. I have reached the limits of my know-how, and hope you guys can help unstuck me. :)

SOURCE: How do I disalarm my 1997 VW Cabrio Alarm?

I have a similiar problem occasionally. In my 97 vw, it usually happens when the battery terminals are loose. I just take them off, clean them and reconnect and the problem goes away for several months.

fuses are usually in the glove box or under the drivers dash or under the drivers side hood either physically inspect every fuse by pulling them one by one or the aid of a test light and a good ground to the test light

SOURCE: Power steering went out on 2000 VW Golf - Battery ind. light on.

hi, if the 2 problems happened at the same time then probably your alternator belt has broken, as the power steering is also run off the same belt

Testimonial: "Actually the serpentine belt broke which powers a variety of things, power steering pump, alternator, water pump etc."

I have a 1999 dodge caravan. Passenger sign turn signal flashes for a short period & goes solid. Reverse light & brake light work just fine. Multifunction switch, light sockets, light assembly...


Sounds like the relay is burning out. When the lights stop flashing does the indicator on the dash light up and stay on and/or does the exterior lights light up and stay on? If the indicator light is staying on then you have a wiring problem to the lights or you have the wrong bulb/ bulbs. If the exterior lights stay on it is a bad relay or power to the relay.

1997 VW Golf GTI 2 Litre. The ABS light comes on


Hello, My 2000 2.0 Golf just recently had the same problem. I would feel the ABS pump working at certain times through the accelerator pedal. I found the right rear sensor failed the Bentley manual continuity test . After removing it I found it was pretty rusted. The sensor head is located inside the rear brake disc hub area and this probably explained this rust. The rust probably worked its way into the sensor body where you can't clean it and thus the resistance value went above specification. I ordered mine through Autohaus and cost me just over $50.00 for both rear sensors. Even though my drivers side was good I replaced it at the same time. The ABS light hasn't been on for 4 days now..

My passenger door has no power,my security light is on constantly


Have lost power to the passenger side door. Without power system doesnt recognize door closed because of no power to door ajar switch which keeps dome light on. Security light stays on because without power to rest of systems supplied by fuse it cannot tell if doors and windows closed to engage security features. Most common is for power wire to break somewhere near where it leaves to main body and enters the door.
