most likely the relay. its located to the left of the fuel filter( looking at the motor from the front). my experience is that they only last about 50,000 miles. the part costs about $20 at an navistar dealer. remove the cowl over the filter, disconnect the batteries(so you don't short the new relay out if you cross the polarity with a wrench) ,remove the four wires from the ceramic relay, un-fasten the relay from the base. reverse the process with the new relay. CAUTION; do not over-tighten the nuts on the wire studs, you could crack the ceramic relay.(iv'e done it) . hope this helps

most of the new cars with such computer system to control the engine and other functions , such as brakes, anti-freeze level, that why the light on and tell you that you should watch out certain things, you still can drive the car, but you have to go to the dealer and let them check you car and reset the computer system and then all the light will be off.

Check to see are your brake light working! if not you have a faulty brake light switch - 10 min repair job at your local VW service centre. With no brake lights you'll need to get it seen to ASAP!!

Check your battery voltage while cranking. If it's too low, the electronics won't work and the injectors won't fire. If the batteries are down a bit, there won't be enough power to turn the engine over fast enough to start. It needs a minimum of 100 rpm and 8 volts while cranking. You also might try waiting till you're sure the GPR has dropped out. That takes the GP load off the batteries and may get the voltage up enough to get it to start, oh and also does the tach move when you're cranking? If not, then chances are the CPS is the culprit.

Probably a heat shield. Often time the screws that hold the shields in place rust away causing the shield to rattle. After the exhaust heats up, the pipes and shield expand causing the shield to stop rattling until it cools down again later when the car has been sitting for a while. Usually you'll find shields under or around the catalytic converter and around the exhaust pipe nearest to the engine. Most folks would probably recommend you remove the shield and be done with it. That's your call. Just remember though, the shields are there for a reason. In particular, the shield under the catalytic converter is there to prevent the possibility of starting tall grass on fire in the event you had to pull off the road for example to fix a flat tire or something along those lines. It might be unlikely, but its definitely been known to happen. Let us know how it goes. Thanks.
