YOU DONT NEED AND VAG-COM. IF YOU CALL YOUR LOCAL DEALER THEY WILL TELL YOU HOW TO FIX IT. IT HAS TO DO WITH THE FEW BUTTONS NEAR THE GAUGE CLUSTER. THE HR AND MIN BUTTON. YOU HAVE TO HOLD IT FOR A LENGTH OF TIME, NOT SURE THOUGH, BUT VERY EASY TO FIX YOURSELF.

You may need a tune up . When was the last time you changed plug wires and had a decent tune up that will cause a vehicle to jerk when reaching higher gears the more strain on the engine the more it will jerk!!!
If it is the 1.6 FSI model, it is very sensitive to the type of gasoline, it should be octane 97 or higher. Very commonly, owners of this model use the 95 Octane gasoline, which seems to work ok, but the sensors in the exhaust (yellow motorwarning light) will eventually (can take a few years) clog up and you cant clean it or change the sensor easy either as you need to remove the whole exhaust system.
So either you let VW fix this for you (expensive) or you do it yourself (need a decent garage, equipment and a new sensor).
Your 2005 VW Golf has a timing belt and not a chain.
Most importantly, your VW has what's called an interference engine.
If th eblt breaks, it will allow the valve to collide with the pistons and you will have major damage.
Be very careful to replace the belt on or before the manufacturer's recommended replacement interval.
VW originally recommended 60k miles or 5 years but that in 2004 or 2005 they changed that to 40k miles or 3 years after seeing belts (and therefore pistons and valves) go pop after about 45k.
the FSI engine is a direct injection engine and they can be noisy particulaly on idle ,if you have no other issues like warning lights lack of power and its always been like it then i sugest it is the nature of the beast .this is not ******** i am a vw master tech and have had many a conversation with customers about noisy FSI engines.hope this puts your mind at rest,alternativly go to VW dealer and get them to take a listen to confirm its normal.cheers
Check the fuses under the dash as the first job. If it is not one of these, it is probably a faulty flasher relay. These are a simple plug- in replacement, but may be behind the fuse panel. This will come out with a couple of screws removed.
If this solves the problem for you, Plese take a moment to rate as fixya! Thanks.
