SOURCE: serious electrical problems wiv vw golf mk4 gti turbo yr 2000

I had a VW rabbit that developed mad electrical problems. It started when one day the headlights remained on and would not shut off. It turned out that a $2.00 gasket for the antenna wire had failed. This allowed road water from the wheel well to leak onto the fuse box. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak.
Check all fuses and electrical wiring for signs of shorts or corrosion.

HI,
Passats can be reset if the radio is pulled out and the fuse on the back is removed. Wait for 2 mins, reinsert the fuse and turn the radio on. If this doesn't work, please take it to the dealer for the unlocking of the code, for which he may charge you some fee.

Do let me know if it was helpful.

Regards
Kanu

I know that on the earlier model VW's there was an underhood thermostatic switch for the electric fans. This switch would keep the fans running until the underhood temperature reached a desired level. If this switch were to go bad, it would most definitely cause the problem that you are describing.

I have a problem with a fan running after I turn off my 2000 Passat Turbo. One mechanic suggested it was a turbo blower. The problem is that the fan runs the battery dead overnight. Any suggestions?
