Question about 1999 Volkswagen Cabrio
Get my check engine light replaced and cam shaft sensor by a former dealership. Immediately after had to bring it in for a speedometer sensor replacement (speedometer stopped working). Immediately after that the check engine light came on again with the code P1476 (EVAP Control System LDP Malfunction/insufficient Vacuum). I've already exhausted my annual budget for car repair and would like to know if this is something I can fix myself or I can ignore without it damaging the car.

o2 sensors will put your check-engine-light on. it is attached to the exhaust (closest to the motor)and rusts-out sometimes. you could try to fix it by buying the o2 sensor and use a socket-set to see if it loosens. i 'm not a mechanic but have had the issue, in the past, with the jetta II's and a 1997.the guys at vw dealers are great with info, if your a hands-on kinda guy/girl.

On some models, the Engine Control unit has a power supply relay. These relays some times get internal dry solder points. After driving for some time the the solder will get hot and separate. When it cools down it makes contact again. You will have to replace this relay or open it up and re- solder the solder joints. The relay is usually located on the main relay station in position 3. the relay station is located behind the right dash panel.[right hand drive vehicles]. You may need to refer to a manual for your specific model to find the exact location of the relay.
