Ignition switch on its way out, as a golf owner im sure awre theyre common, also possible ignition relay, though i reckon ignition switch it has two outputs and they fail intermittanly, eventualy they will stop all tgether,new swith bout £20 though fitting means removal of steering wheel and a puller is required to remove the housing.
Good luck Davelee

Blower not working


To determine the cause of a blower fan failure, isolate the motor, and perform some basic electrical tests.Check fuses first. Fuse failure often causes component failure. Check for power at the motor itself. Test the connection to the blower motor. Test the switch.-------------------------------------------------------------------

That has to do with your computer for your body controls, such a/c, heater, wipers, etc...
Most common problem is drinks spilling into the computer which is right between the cup holder. It will eventually cause a problem with a/c most likely.

Most probably it is a relay problem. First check from car manual which relay is commanding to your wipers, blower etc... Then you or your service have to replace it.
