Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

I have a 2001 VW Polo 1.6 classic. My speedometer would often cut out and stop working, now my entire dashboard is dead, (including the digital odometer which is stuck) even my indicator lights don't work. My hazards work as well as my dashboard clock. I have checked the small fuses and cant find anything wrong

Sometimes when the spark plug cables are dying (or are from a lousy manufacturer) it affects the dashboard. Happened to me when i had a 97 Polo, check that, it could be the same problem.

My vw polo classic 1.6 2001 model petrol don't want to start,no spark and cuts off itself while driving changed distributor,cap,rotor,coil,fuel filter but still same problem .What could be the cause?


You don't say whether you have physically checked the spark when it is not starting or it has cut itself off. This is probably the easiest check to do and it could provide the answer.

Two possibilities spring to mind that caused problems in the dim and distant past though it could be something else entirely and only good systematic checking will isolate the fault.

I seem to remember the fuel pump relay, which contained electronics, sometimes played hide and seek for some time before they failed altogether.

Not sure if your car uses a hall effect generator for crank or cam position/trigger information but these too can play hide and seek.

VW Polo Classic 1.6 Radiator fan not going on


Try moving the fan blades by hand to see if the fan spins freely to see if the problem is frozen bearings in the fan motor. Replace the fan motor if it doesn't turn. If it spins freely disconnect the wires and hook the fan directly to the battery using a jumper. If it runs the problem is most likely the thermostatic switch. If it doesn't the fan motor is bad.
