Question about 2003 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

I have a 2003 volkswagen golf with a 2.0 liter engine. My temperature gauge randomly falls all the way to the left after the car has ample time to warm up. It gets to 190 degrees and will stay then randomly goes down then randomly comes back up. Also my radio/cd player works but I can not get any stations. I press seek and just keeps going. Any suggestions to either of these problems?

The temperature sensor or the gauge itself may be faulty causing it to jump around. As for the radio it could be the head unit itself or the cable to the antenna may be loose or disconnected.

Golf diesel 2003 keeps stopping randomly no diagnostic faults logged


When you say shopping you mean Stalling right. If yes then the usual cause is a failing Relay 109 which is the main power relay . The early golf had a grey relay which failed due to dry solder joints etc the modified black relay was issued to elevate the issue.

Relay 109 supplies power to these ,
Glow plug relay
- Fuse 32
ECM
Fuel quantity adjuster
- Fuse 34
Cold start injector
Waste gate bypass regulator valve (N75)
Change over valve (N239)
EGR vacuum regulator valve (N18)
Mass air flow sensor (G70)
- Fuse 43
Clutch vacuum vent valve (if equipped)
Brake vacuum vent valve
Relays for preheating coolant (if equipped)
Crankcase ventilation heating element

The ECM supplies power (and sometime ground as well) for:
Fuel cutoff valve
Cruise control switch
Manifold (intake) air pressure/Intake air temperature sensor
Needle lift sensor
Engine speed sensor
Engine coolant sensor
Closed throttle position switch (part of "go" pedal)
Kickdown switch (part of "go" pedal)
Throttle position switch (part of "go" pedal)
Fuel temperature sensor
Modulating piston displacement sensor

The ECM also communicates to the instrument cluster electronics and transmission control module (on automatics).

As a result of this, you can see why if the relay starts to cause power to flicker, or voltage drops, for all of these components, the results can be "unpredicatable" and none of them desireable.

2003 volkswagen golf engine temperature gauge and engine light on


If the temp gauge reading is high when the engine is cold it will be a short to the sender unit or a faulty sender unit ( as opposed to a temperature sensor unit). Have the fault codes read to find out what put the engine light on ( overheat)

Hello,

The fuse box of the 2003 volkswagen golf is located under the driver side dash board. Far left side, the panel drops down, it is right above the hood latch. Turn off the engine whenever You want to check or replace the any fuse, then You also remove the left terminal head from the battery head before You check for any blown fuse.

Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Thermostat for VW golf 1996 The temp gauge raised to almost 220 but water temp light did not flush at all. Is it possible that the car has no thermostat?


Hi,
Usually if a vehicle has NO thermostat the engine runs too cold for to long. So I suspect your VW has a thermostat. Suggest you check to make sure you have ample antifreeze, and that the fan is working properly. If those two things are O.K. then a blocked radiator or water pump issue will need to be checked out. With a 50/50 mix of antifreeze 220 degrees will not harm your engine. Good Luck.

My temperature gauge reads low, even to the point where it tells me the engine is cooling instead of heating up to normal running temperature. Even once the needle has indicated a normal running...


check to see if you have voltage at the wire that connects to gauge, then check for continuity on gauge terminals to see if it's ok. almost sounds like it might be the gauge
