Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
My vw polo keeps cutting out. whe it slows down the battery light comes on and it cuts out. It always starts back up but it never cuts out when driving. Any idea what the problem might be?
I had a similar problem on our Polo 1.4. I replaced the throttle sensor body which I bought online for about £100. It solved the problem and was easy to change with the right tools. VW garage wanted £350 for the part alone!!

Try cleaning your battery terminals and tightening them. if that doesnt solve the problem your battery or alternator may be dying, some auto parts stores will do a charging system check for free that will tell you if one or the other is bad.

Its sounds like your car isn't idling fast enough, hence it is switching off when you come to a halt. Ideally the idle speed needs to be increased which can only be done with a VAG diagnostic tester. Alternatively, it could also be caused by a faulty throttle body valve, which would need to be replaced. However, none of this may be necessary, should your car respond to the reset procedure described on http://volkswagen-polo-highline.blogspot.com/
If this does't solve your problem, it's time to replace the throttle body but thereafter Adaptation needs to be done by someone with a VAG diagnostic tester.
