Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf
When I sometimes turn off the ignition, the clock and trip meter becomes blank, and the rev counter sticks at around 800 revs, the radio goes off, for two or three seconds. If I ***** the brake pedal, there's a buzzing sound and clicking behind the dash, and then the radio comes on, and the clock and trip meter displays again, but zeroed. When I have such problems, I also experience the car cutting out in between gearing down when approaching traffic lights. If I manage to keep it going till I stop, then it hunts until it settles down, if it does'nt cut out. Today I even experienced it switching off the radio, digital clock and trip meter etc., while travelling at 130 km/h! Whever it cuts out, it is never a problem to start again. It has this problem intermittently, and sometimes goes away after a week, as suddenly as it started, and maybe only returns after a month or sometimes less.
Even though I'm a very patient person,it can be VERY irritating!!
It sounds like a ground problem. If the voltage will away find the path of less resists. Some time that meaning going though like you gauges and applying you brake will then uses the lights for the brake for the better ground. I would clean the ground cable, by removing them and sanding the connection and the metal that it attaches to, at the end that goes to the motor and the chassis (this is the one that is more than likely dirty) hope this will help

Sounds like another VW made in Mexico.
Have the ECU checked for shorts, it sounds like it needs replacement.
Also check your vacuum hoses for leaks.

Turn igniton to on position and put odometer in trip mode, turn off ignition.
Hold trip button in and hold it in as you turn ignition to on position, it will flash
Turn off ignition.
