It's most likely to be the resistor, it's a common problem. You should be able to get one at your local motor factors or breakers yard and they are generally easy to fit. Not sure of its position on a golf - check a haynes manual or ask your local garage.

Ok very carefully pull off the mirrior blade. The mirrior blade is clipped but EXTEMELY fragile and will break if forced. From there remove the 2 heated blade wires. The cover is also clipped as you will notice after that is removed. You have to pry with a plastic tip between the cover and hosing near the body of the car while pulling the clips in the housing you see to lift the cover straight up. Once this is done you'll need a t-10 torx screwdriver to remove the lower portion. These screws are when you're looking straight down. With this assembly off you can access the 2 other little screws holding the flasher to the bottom cover. Remove the wires and the little clip and there you go. Installation is reverse.

Testimonial: "Thanks very much for such a quick diagnosis - this concurs with another opinion I've had. Is it repairable or does it mean a new gearbox?"

When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.

The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.

Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.

From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).

You might get lucky with a small service :)

My 94 Sundance heater/AC blower motor has quit. I've bought a new resister, but cannot find where it's located. Any help?


The blower motor resistor is located in the same duct that the blower motor blows through. If you see the blower motor, within a foot of it is the resistor. The blower motor actually blows over the resistor to keep it cool. The blower motor is usually only in 1 of 2 different locations. On passenger side, access under the hood or under dash access behind glovebox. In both cases the resitor will be in the duct that the blower motor blows through.

Heater blower switch will only work at possion 4


Underneath the glove compartment on the passenger side is a cover which must come off,2 plastic screws holding this cover.Underneath you will find a 5 pin connector[big plug] connected to a white connector in the blower fan housing.This is called the fan resistor which controls the blower fan speed.Unclip the resistor out the housing and renew.Your problems should be solved..regards

Blower fan only works at speed 4 and 5


This is what you are looking for. I've got a similar problem and need to get my blower motor resistor out. I've found the resistor, but it has no bolts holding it in. It has what looks like torx or something similar, but nothing will fit. In fact, they look like they are plastic and possibly stripped out. If you have any luck let me know how you got it out.

Ac trouble


TSB #01262004 -- THIS IS A PRODUCT SERVICE MESSAGE REGARDING THE NEW PART NUMBER FOR THE HEATER BLOWER RESISTOR FOR CUSTOMER CONCERN OF THE HEATER MOTOR NOT BLOWING ON ONE UP TO ALL SPEEDS. *TT (NHTSA ID #10012980, JANUARY 26 2004)

I hope this will help you, Was thinking of the blower resistor that control the different speeds and most of the time they were recalls. Just go back to the dealer and see if your covered.

If not i'ld take a close look at the switch and then the Resistor and if you need to know where it is, just ask the guy's at the dealer. Most of the time it's not to far from the blower motor.

Good luck and hope you can save time and money.
