Question about 1994 Volkswagen Golf
I hv the same problem, checked the relay and it had dry joints on the solder... Do u think soldering it will help or should I just get another one? Can't the coil to distributor cable do the same problem on the car as well?

Just found your problem while looking for solutions to my own. My 2.0 8v 3door 97 golf gti can also cut out after driving for two or three minutes. Works fine one day then dies instantly 5 times the next...not a safe thing to happen pulling out of a junction!! Have researched problem and been told that it's probably fixable for £12-15. The "Hall Sender Relay" which is the fancy name for the ecu's power supply relay can go on the blink and cut power at any time causing instant shutdown...just like turning off the ignition key. Part number is 165906381 and available from a local vw dealer usually overnight. I'm fitting mine tomorrow 4/4/09...fingers crossed!
Hope this helps others...worth a try for the cost involved.

Hi, if the computer is giving you a message on faulty Triptronic switch and defective control unit, then you have a huge problem. The Triptronic switch is in the shifter housing. If the multifunction switch were bad, there would be no shifting in auto-mode, you need to change the switch and VW will be in the best position to do it...
