You need a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why that light is on. If you have an autozone near you,go there they will hook one up for you. Takes about 30 to 40 seconds. If not call around.

I have a 2006 vw golf 1.4. The exhaust fault light has come on and using a diagnostic machine i have found that fan relay no1 is faulty. Can anyone tell me where this is so i can replace it?


The fan has nothing to do with the fault for the exhaust. Please see a dealer on this, you need a VW approved live data scanner to check this out.

Vw golf se fsi 2006 30,000 miles. exhaust warning light on


If it is the 1.6 FSI model, it is very sensitive to the type of gasoline, it should be octane 97 or higher.
Very commonly, owners of this model use the 95 Octane gasoline, which seems to work ok, but the sensors in the exhaust (yellow motorwarning light) will eventually (can take a few years) clog up and you cant clean it or change the sensor easy either as you need to remove the whole exhaust system.

So either you let VW fix this for you (expensive) or you do it yourself (need a decent garage, equipment and a new sensor).

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.

Exhaust gas warning light on. Took to garage who hooked it up to their computer. Over heating but fan comes on so mechanic said no problem. Petrol seems to have gone down quickly on short journey. Engine...


just because the fans come on that doest mean that there is no problem if your thermostat is not operating correctly this could make your engine over heat also while your at flush yout coolant system really good.

Golf gt tdi 2.0 140 bhp mk 5 - esp light


When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.

The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.

Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.

From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).

You might get lucky with a small service :)
