Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf
WHAT SORT OF ALTERNATOER DOES A VW GOLF MARK 4 1.S X-REG NEED
Start with the obvious, but sometimes overlooked things, and you may not need any car repairs. Check to make sure the fuel tank is not empty, or the headlights left on by mistake. Consult a car repair manual, if you need to, before moving on to the next step. Open the hood of the car and check out the battery. Clean the battery terminal connections; if they're corroded the battery won't hold a charge long enough to get the engine going. Remove any corrosion and tighten the battery cables. Examine the air filter; it's in a black plastic box to the right of the engine. If it looks dirty, replace it. Air filters cost less than ten dollars and all auto parts stores stock them. Check one of two fuse boxes located under the dashboard on the far left side, and also under the hood. If a fuse looks melted, that's a blown fuse, and it may be the answer to your problem. Take the melted fuse out and install a new one. Turn the ignition key to the on position but not all the way to start. If the dashboard lights don't come on, you may have a bad ignition switch. Broken, loose or disconnected wiring in the ignition system will cause the car not to start.
