Sometimes this problem is simply the motor brushes,if you get the brushes on ebay,it`s no drama to fit.
just remove your glove compartment and airbag but don`t disconnect the air bag or you`ll have to reset the light.you can now remove the motor.

The speed resistor pack beside the fan motor is fried and not supplying power to the motor. Need to remove and check with a digital VOM for resistance.

    Inside light as in interior lighting? Check everything your car is not powering up or functioning and write it up here and we'll see what's up with that. I'll be here tomorrow 11pm PDT, I'm in the Bay Area in California and try help you with this. Thanks, EdP

    Try the barrel switch beside the main headlight rotary switch. Roll your finger up or down, this acts as your dimmer for the inside information lighting (dash lights). I say that because even the lights for your door lock switch dims and not limited to the dashboard.

Ac on 2001 vw golf tdi 1.9 blows hot air was working but stopped blowing cold air has freon and compressor clutch is good


Your motor for the temp door may not be working. It is all the way under the dash, toward the back, may be able to reach it and put your hand on it from under the driver-side foot well- but with the windows up so you can hear, listen to hear if the motor runs when operating the temp from cold to hot. If you have Climatronic, take a deep look at Climatronic blend door motor. The Climatronic is a fully controlled system. You absolutely need to use a scan tool to access the diagnostics and code memory. You may just need to clear the DTCs for compressor operation. Also, these are known for temp sensor problems causing no compressor operation. You pressure readings to indicate the clutch is not engaging. If you do need to replace your ac compressor this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/autoparts/Volkswagen/Golf/A-C_Compressor.html

I have a vw bora 2002 model... the radiator fan for this car starts as soon as i start the car n stops when i shut the car.... can you tell me why is this happening


Your AC compressor is activated via Climatronic control. The system regulates inside temperature activating the compressor or opening the flap from the heater core. This will be automatic when you set the temp you desired inside the vehicle. Unless you see the words ECON on the right side of the LCD display, your AC compressor will be engaged and the rad fan will operate to prevent the engine from over heating. Press ECON until you see it displayed and it will disengage the compressor and use only the interior blower fan to regulate the inside temp by opening the outside air flap and not from the AC.
