The battery grounding ******** vw's periodically go bad and need replacement, I would suspect this to be the case.
It will corrode
in its casing, resulting in faulty electrical systems.

    The battery grounding straps are to be suspected in this cause.

Believe it or not, this could be a mass airflow issue. The mass airflow can trigger the lights the ASR and the EPC lights. When i gets really cold, the airflow sensor sends signals to the CPU to readjust the air/fuel mixture.

My vw golf tdi suffered a loss of powere whilst driving then followed with what sounds like a holed exhaust from the front. It wont go over 30mph and there are no warning lights on the dash.


Must be a broken cat converter. The platinum honeycomb core is broken into several pieces and clogging the exhaust pipe preventing you to go more than 45 mph. Try hitting it with a rubber mallet and listen if any pieces rattling inside. If it sounds like pebbles inside, it's time to replace it.

19 tdi loss of power


I have a 1999 VW golf tdi with intermittent loss of power. The turbo will cut in for a few seconds, then die forcing you to change gear and get a small boost again. The turbo will not boost much past 2200 rpm. The cars computer has been plugged in at the garage and does not show any problems. Various people have said, replace turbo, air mass meter or just simply wash turbo filters in WD40. Can anyone help?
