Those codes mean there's an issue with your MAF, Throttle Body Sensor, Fuel System, Engine Misfires

Start with the MAF first as that can cause the other issues to appear (ex. fuel issue because your MAF says it needs more fuel so your engine is getting flooded and stalling.

Then look at the Throttle body and have the replaced if the issue still occurs... Then look at the fuel injectors and fuel delivery system (lines, gas tank, gas pump, etc)

Your engine misfires seem to be the result of any of the previous....

Erase ALL codes as many of them may be old ones that were not deleted.
Crank engine with key 10 times or drive the car for a few miles. The OB Computer will now re boot and store all new codes.
Then do another scan. This should reduce the amount of codes.
All the best

2001 vw Cabrio stalled and motor would not turn over. Battery was good

Hello Tammy, Can you tell me a little history about the car before it stalled, such as you were driving and it stalled or was it sitting idling before it stalled. And something to check in the meantime is make sure the oil level is correct. VW, has a lot of issues with oiling. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you. Allen

1997 vw cabrio 2.0 . Have replaced fuel relay, fuel filter, crankshaft position sensor. and the motor will shut off after a few minutes of driving. It's almost like you turn the key off !

It could be lots of things like a bad ignition coil or a bad ignition module. The best place to start would be to scan your engine control module for possible fault codes.

It could be the same problem or a totally different problem. You can take your car to AutoZone and have your car scanned with a OBD II scanner for free and see which codes are coming up now.

My 95 vw cabrio shuts down both at 65 mph or just sitting in park

To keep it simple first, try replacing the fuel filter. They have a average life of around 30,000 to 40,000 miles or one year. you can pick one up at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools and you can also have the car scanned there for any DTC codes and it's free of charge. Keep me posted, be glad to help you getting your car running 100% again.

Replacing engine mounts for 1996 vw cabrio

Autozone will have them or on the web, Autohauz. Cheaper on the web... just search for "motor mounts vw cabrio" or go here:

There are 4 (one front, one back, one left and one right). The driver's side and the front are hard to get to. They will be a combination of metal and rubber. Do not buy used! Weak motor mounts are just as bad as broken ones.

Good luck!

Tach and speedometer work intermittenly and sometimes trans doesnt shift until 4500 rpm. vw cabrio 1999 automatic.

Good question! My Cabrio's odometer works only when the outside temps are really cold... that means about freezing temp. My VW repair shop guru guy says that the Cabriolet is notorious for this failing. Since the odometer is driven through a small gearbox via the speedo cable, I suspect the odometer "transmission" is mostly kaput. The tach is also mechanically driven so it also may have a semi-functional cable. The only way to really know is to pull the cable and check it for damage. As far as the trans goes have you tested it for codes?

I have a 99 vw cabrio and it was doing the same thing. It would just stop in the middle of the street. It ended up being a sensor. I am not very car smart so I can not tell you which one it was. I will look at my repair paperwork and get back to you. I hope that this narrows it down for you though. I also changed almost every part on my car that deals with it starting. It ended up costing me about $1000.00 in the end.
