    I really appreciate your communication, sorry for my late response. I have the car booked in for Wednesday and will run this past the mechanic.



    The engine computer light is permanently on, the computer confirms no issues, any thoughts?



    Thank you again.

Try starting the car and while the car is running disconnect the posative ( red ) cable. If the car stops then you need to replace the alternator. This will cause the battery light to come on. If the car still runs then take the car to advaced auto or some car parts store of that sort and they will check your battery ang charging system for free and tell you what parts you exactly need. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer, thanks.

My vw polo keeps cutting out. when it slows down


try cleaning your battery terminals and tightening them. if that doesnt solve the problem your battery or alternator may be dying, some auto parts stores will do a charging system check for free that will tell you if one or the other is bad.

My engine management light comes on then disappears for days then comes back. I took it the garage and he said it was a P0116 fault, any ideas on what this means an how to fix it, many thanks guys : ) its...


Im guessing it is a jetta? I never heard of a polo. BUT the guy at the garage obviously didnt help you out very much except scanned for codes. ANYWAY.... P0116 means Engine Coolant Circuit Range/Performance. I recommend checking engine coolant temp[ECT] sensor G62. It probably needs to be replaced. And a coolant flush would probably be good to

VW POLO-52 plate EPC light on dash


My Polo had a similar problem and the brake light switch at the brake pedal was replaced. Then the computer was reset and the EPC light issue was resolved. It has something to do with the engine management, when sensing the light switsh being activated, retarding the power of the engine.

1992 VW Polo 1.3L Coupe: warning light mystery


Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.

By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)

VW Polo Classic 1.6 Radiator fan not going on


Try moving the fan blades by hand to see if the fan spins freely to see if the problem is frozen bearings in the fan motor. Replace the fan motor if it doesn't turn. If it spins freely disconnect the wires and hook the fan directly to the battery using a jumper. If it runs the problem is most likely the thermostatic switch. If it doesn't the fan motor is bad.
