Both seat heaters in this car are on the same fuse and relay. If one is working and the other is not, you can assume that the fuse and relay are okay. It could either be a broken circuit in the seat heater itself or a bad switch. Most likely it is a break in the heater element. I had this problem in my 2004 forester on the driver side. after removing the upholstry cover on the seat and some careful inspection I found two broken solder joints at each thermostat in the seat heater element. A quick solder job fixed the problem. The only real difficulty on the job was that the thermostats and associated connections are sandwiched between two layers of fabric and filled with hot glue. Careful probing with the end of a soldering iron can melt the hot glue away from the areas you need access to. A quick internet search will find you some pretty good directions on how to remove the seat covers. Hope this helps.

This cigarette lighter socket.... of course! I jumped into my Outback today to go get new tyres fitted. It was a cold wintery day here in Melbourne so I went to put the heater on. No Luck. Display for the Climate Control was dead. No lights, no functions at all... Damn. I have been away for 9 weeks, I came home to a flat Battery and low tyre. Jump started car left it running while I used crappy 12v compressor which lasted 30 seconds... BLOWING CIGARETTE LIGHTER FUSE. Didn't replace it, went on to use proper 240V Compressor, all good. A day later after using Battery charger on car after it wouldn't start, realise battery is dead dead. Trade in battery for new one. Fit to car, all good. Today, as I mentioned, I realise no heater controls. Search through forums on net to find this.... The BLOWN CIGARETTE LIGHTER FUSE!!!!!! Thanks MIGNUN1

SOURCE: OVERHEATING!!!!

Since you changed your waterpump, you need to do an air bleed...
This is INSANELY important!
The airbleed is mounted on the top of the radiator on the passenger side.
Its made of plastic, has a seal, and looks like a 1/2 inch (12mm) philips screw head.
To do this, make sure the engine is cold and not running.
Use a large FLAT HEAD screw driver and turn it counter clockwise.
It might be very tight, so be prepared for a bit of torque to turn it!
Unscrew it, and look in the hole.
Coolant should be at the top of the bottom of the screw hole.
It should be low, so add coolant to the open hole.
While doing this, be sure the radiator cap is off so you can balance the fluid level properly.
Why do you need to bleed the system?
The engine has a slight tilt upwards toward the radiator, and both your waterpump, and block will have a tendancy to leave air near the top of the block and heads.
This is a common mistake on several makes after a coolant change.
Make sure all fluids are topped off, fill the overflow tank to its max level indicated on the tank itself and your done.
Provided you havent been driving long on the car in this condition, it shouldnt blow a headgasket.
A good way to know if the headgasket is bad is the radiator cap will have a brownish "slime" indicating combustion gasses are getting into the cooling system.
IF this is the case, your engine is pumping combustion gasses into your system and no amount of air bleeding with help.
Another tell tale sign of coolant being pressurized, is a overflowing "overflow" tank, and a sudden blast from Normal operating temprature to HOT, and then suddenly.. it goes back to Normal again.
There is usually a "gurgling" sound under your dash..
Lets assume you just need to do an air bleed, and things will go back to normal.
Also, if your airbleed screw has alittle coolant leaking around it, replace it with a new one as the seal and plastic have worn due to age.
Good luck!

Why does my heat only work on high and my radio display doesn't work


they are probably unrelated. Have the heater control checked, maybe the lower settings have disappeared due to a faulty control knob/button/slider etc.
The radio may not display due to a blown fuse somewhere, or a problem in the loom.
I would approach them as having discrete causes.An ICE technician can probably sort the radio out in minutes for a few dollars/euros/pounds

The heater control is probably a little more costly to remedy but should not be very much more.

What happens if you turn the VOLUME to MAXIMUM?

If still no sound , then suspect problem with the speaker , connections or wiring

If loud hissing etc. then speakers appear OK so suspect a radio fault

Heater Fan does not work


Sounds like the fan control knob has shorted out. You can check the fan "blower" relay and fuse in the engine compartment but you need to make sure the control knob is good or you will keep blowing fuses and relays. If your blower fuse and relay are good, then just have the control knob checked and replaced if needed.

Apart from the fuse box in the engine bay there is a fuse repository behind the coin alcove underneath the boot release. Fuse 3 for the lighter (I think) was blown. I replaced it and now the climate control console responds and the display lights up.

02 VW GTI Radio says CHECK


This worked for me (radio in 2003 VW Golf):
Radio says "CHECK" but is otherwise unresponsive. Turning car or radio on/off doesn't help.
On the far right of the radio, there's a round TUNER button. Press it for 5 seconds. Your screen will then show some digits, but the unit is still unresponsive.
Press tuner button again for 5 seconds. Radio should now be 100% again. Let me know if this works for you.

Remote keyless entry, radio and power sliding door


I think the body control module is shorting out . The body control module can be over heating internally then shorted out. All the parts you mention have a circuit running to the body control module. I would have the vehicle checked for codes at a repair shop , then check the wiring to the body control module.
good luck
