Limp mode 2000 VW Golf 2.0 Automatic

Engine light is on, P1626 is the only code. Odd not a manual tranny. Checked fuse panel for any blown fuses found #15 a 5a fuse tried to replace it, continues to pop. Got a repair manual #15 controls the Dash panel insert, Auto gearbox,ESP. checked out the schematic found this was a sensing lead to the dash cluster from there to the ECU. Removed and inspected the ECU found corrosion (green in color)on a couple of the terminal pins at the bottom of the supply side. Cleaned corrosion. plugged back in. Fuse is still good. But still have a DTC code of P1626. Is there something I'm missing. Is there a control for the auto trans that I should be looking at instead?

SOURCE: cruise control

Here's the situation, there was a factory recall on the cruise control module for Explorers and Expeditions during recent years and your vehicle may be included. This is very important because in some vehicles this faulty cruise control module sparked and caught on fire. Here's what you do, call the Ford dealer in your area(service) with the vin number to your vehicle, they will tell you if your vehicle was under this factory recall and if it is they will replace it for free. I would be very careful as you may have one of these faulty modules. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: 2003 Jetta TDI alternator light came on in dash

Your voltage regulator supplies the path for the control lead of the alternator and varies the amount of current available to provide the magnetic field of the armature with the required strength. Measuring from this lead to ground won't show much voltage.
Apparently the regulator is not integrated into the alternator and is probably failed. If you can chase the control lead backward, you will find the regulator and these are mostly mounted on the fender well or firewall.

SOURCE: 98 ranger 4x4 dash lights went out and heater control lights also

WELL YOUR 12 VOLTS TO THE PARK LIGHTS ON EXTERIOR OF CAR COME FROM THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH.. ALSO THAT VOLTAGE FEEDS THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER... KEEP IN MIND THAT THE DASH DIMMER MIGHT ALSO BE BAD... WHEN YOU TURN ON PARK LIGHTS YOU SHOULD SEE THE DASH LIGHT FUSE GO HOT IF NOT SUSPECT THE HEAD LIGHT SWITCH

The codes:-- 920 The cluster is not receiving a vehicle speed message from the PCM.1. Check the PCM software level and reflash if required.

2. Use a DRB scan tool to verify that the vehicle speed message is being sent by the PCM.
----------------
921 The cluster is not receiving a distance pulse message from the PCM.1. Check the PCM software level and reflash if required.

2. Use a DRB scan tool to verify that the distance pulse message is being sent by the PCM.
----------
999 An error has been discovered.1. Record the failure message.

2. Depress the trip odometer reset button to continue the Self-Diagnostic Test.-----------Code 999 is nothing to worry, but code 920 and 921.This both codes indicates problem with communication of instrument cluster and pcm( also known as cars computer).-------If you have tried cleaning the instrument cluster board and re-flashing cpu, then its most probably faulty computer( cpu/ pcm).It has to be replaced.------------Get both the instrument cluster board and pcm bench tested at the car repair site.And replace which ever tests faulty.The problem is between any of the two.---------This will help, thanks.Helpmech.

Reverse light fuse is continually blowing 1999 mitsubishi galant


The speed sensor is probably the root of your problems. Likely the reverse switch wiring is routed through the harness for the sensor. That could also be the reason it goes into limp mode. Change the sensor and see if all problems are resolved. Good luck.

My cigarette lighter doesn't have power for my GPS. Do you know how to check or replace the fuse for a 2000 VW golf?


Hi,

first check all your fuses and replace any blown fuses.
if that fails you'll have to check connections,but i think the fuse responsible for the cigarette liter is fuse no 33.


Good luck!!!

2000 VW Golf. My windows and sunroof won't close (no noise, no trying, nothing) but everything else seems to work fine. Any ideas?


Fuse blown - look for the one with the key symbol it powers windows/locks/interior lights/sunroof operation. Then work out why it blows...could be anything on the circuit so check a lock isn't sticking on/off when operating the central locking.

Serious electrical problems wiv vw golf mk4 gti turbo yr 2000


I had a VW rabbit that developed mad electrical problems. It started when one day the headlights remained on and would not shut off. It turned out that a $2.00 gasket for the antenna wire had failed. This allowed road water from the wheel well to leak onto the fuse box. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak.
Check all fuses and electrical wiring for signs of shorts or corrosion.
