The lights on the heaters dont come on and when i turn the switch on the fan doesnt start up when im driving i can feel heat coming threw iv tryed the contact on the switch and the checked the fuse dont no if its going to be the heater motor or the control unit any ideas?
Early golfs mk1 n 2 have switch probs if heater not working! if you can feel hot air at your feet then your matrix is good at least! you will get hot or cold air when your driving if youve selected hot or cold on the panel.sounds like switch to me

That hand brake light is also your conventional brake
warning lite. Hopefully its the flimsy connector and switch that is making it flicker. But to play it safe have some one do an inspection of your brake system and if it turns out to be the wiring or the switch we can both laugh about it. This repair is not a biggie at all IF ITS THE SWITCH OR ITS WIRING.
My mk3 1996 16v 2ltr was playing up, wouldnt start when cold, wouldnt rev above 4500-5000. I changed the ignition switch, ecu relay, petrol pump relay, plugs,plug leads, coil, and finally, checked the hall sender on the dizzy, and found a broken wire in the dizzy body. Got a 2nd hand dizzy from a breakers for 40 quid, (150 or more new) and all is well. (I actually took the car to two garages and they couldnt find the problems, no faults registered on vagcom).
Look on the starter, there are 2 terminals (plastic and black) if i remember correctly, alot of times the top connector gets loose or disconnected. Make sure all connections on starter are clean and secure. Try that before anything else.
um...strange ...engine temp reaches 210 before thermostat opens and lets water circulate ..fans go on before that normally..180 or so..hot air from heater going to cold air? strange...could you elaborate for me /us?
Apparently, this problem you are experiencing is quite common in VW MK4 Golfs, it's not the bulb but the lighting connection behind your switch. If you bang the right hand side sides your gan controls your fan lights should appear again. Sounds crazy but it's true. I know few people with VW Golf who have this problem.
