Question about 1988 Volkswagen Fox
I have a very feint flicker on my right rear indicator lamp. When I apply brakes and the brake light is activited, the indicator light almost disappears completely and the flasher unti double-times as if it is not working at all. At times, drivers behind me fail to see me indicate, since the light is so feint. I have replaced globes and cleaned the console which holds the globes thoroughly. Please advise - 1988 VW Fox 1.3 ... my email is email@example.com
These old models of Fox's are just that old. I have been told that the engine light goes on due to the lack of oil pressure in the car. The valves apparently get worn out and create a lower pressure that the oil will pass through them...therefore sometimes this registers as an engine light going off every now and again. However, my mechanic has told me that these old german cars are like tanks and can run on and on and on....on lesser than normal oil pressure in the engine. Keep it well maintained and watch for any abnormal or steady warning lights. My mechanic says don't take the car any farther away than I would chance a tow ride back. If that is a hint or what! Lol.
