Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

VW golf 2001 when parked the dash board lights come on

And rear plate light. When I lock car the lights are off, but when I return the dash board and radio lights are all on, also the rear plate light, which eventually drains my battery. I have a brand new battery in the car. It seems to have begun when I used the fog light, I believe.

I have a 55 plate VW Golf 2.0 Fsi - the alarm keeps going off by itself! We disconnected the battery last night (to get some sleep!) and it's started again today.... agh, HELP!


You probably have a faulty door,boot or bonnet lock.If you put the inside light switch to the setting for the light to come on when the doors are open,close all the doors and see if the light goes off.If your model golf has a display on the dash,it shuold tell you which door is open.It could also be a faulty interior sensor or a faulty alarm horn.A diagnostic machine will be able to tell you which was the last alarm activation.
