Hi I am Vortash the battery light is an indicator to if the Alternator is charging or not .. if the light is on it is saying that it isn't , check the plug and wire connections to the alternator check your earth strap from your negative side of the battery to earth or if it is a continental positive earth car check the + side is attched to the earth securely and cleanly .. check the output from the alternator you should be gettinfg approx 13.5 to 14 .5 volts DC if not switch to ac if you get a reading the rectifier has gone and will need replacing ..( most of the modern alternators come with new brushes attached to a rectifier as a single module ) Check the fan belt tension slipping belt can cause bad charge rate and bring the light on .if you are finding the car is becoming difficult to start the battery going low the fault is realy dead to rights a charging fault.. Hope this helps Vortash

I would suspect corroded connections at the battery or the battery needs replacing. It takes very little voltage to run the battery and dash lights, but lots more to run everything else. Remove the battery, clean the connections, and then charge the battery. Take the battery to an auto parts store and have it tested.

I need a diagram to help determine what the two switches or units are that sit atop of the oil filter unit. 1989 Volkswagen GTI 16 valve


If you are referring to the single terminal switches, one brown and the other white, those are oil pressure switches. The brown one is the low pressure switch [replacement switch is blue] and the white one is the high pressure switch.

check starter relay, and definately remove and clean the terminals on the negative ground battery cable. A voltmeter would be handy to test where the power begins and cuts out at

I changed the back right tire on my 1989 suzuki swift gti, and now the break light won't go off and the rotor is grinding. It was fine before but i don't know how to fix it, what should I do?


as changing a tyre has nothing to do with the other faults you describe,try changing the bulb for the brake light.and check rotors/brake pads for wear.

It was slipping heaps when we put foot down on accelorator but now it wont go anywhere just revs in first but wont go any where and the temp gauge went up to really hot


Your transmission is all done. After slipping this badly and getting hot, it might not be worth rebuilding. Try to find a different trans (or a different car. )
