Hi there!

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.

Hi,
You will need "VAG diagnostic software" - (google it) on a laptop and a £15 VAGCOM interface cable if you want to do it yourself.
Cheers, D.

SOURCE: starting problems golf mk4 1.6 petrol

There is a part between the air intake manifold and the air box on your engine, it's usually black on a golf, will look like a 15cm tube around 80-90mm in diameter with a plugged wire leading into it, this is your MAF sensor or MASS AIR FLOW sensor and if dirty / faulty can cause an incorrect temp reading from the air intake and cause rough engine starting, this is a very common problem on mk4 golfs... the part is apparently cleanable, with isoprop alcohol, or I assume white spirit. the actual sensor needs to be removed from its housing for cleaning, and as always treat carefully... the part replacement, depending on where you go can be around $50 - $100 used or even new.... part number off the existing one on your car, try ebay as you can do well for price :) could be fouled spark plugs from rich fuel mix on bad airtemp sensor, could be a million things but the MAF sensor is one of the golden oldies I'd be checking first :) Goodluck, Chas

Vw golf cutting out


No it is impossible to say without testing the vehicle and doing a complete analysis with the correct diagnostic equipment.

These vehicle have numerous electrical faults that sometimes the VW dealer service centres cannot diagnose. What has been happening to you is the mechanics have been guessing what the problem is and just changing things without really identifying the actual cause - as you have now found. These are very unreliable cars so do not be fooled by the "german quality" label that people frequently and wrongly apply to German cars.

If you want and need a reliable car I would recommend you get rid of this Golf and get yourself a Mazda (and have any prospective used car thoroughly inspected before biuying). If you keep the Golf I guarantee it will give you much grief and cost you plenty more repairs.

Vw golf mk5 airbag fault wires cut under seat reconnected does it require fault reset


You can reset the Airbag ECU only using VAG or similar diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, even you had repaired first fault wires cut under seat! After all faults erasing from the Airbag ECU the airbag warning light will turn OFF.

Vw golf se fsi 2006 30,000 miles. exhaust warning light on


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).

My vw golf 1.4 cuts out as i approach junctions, traffic lights etc. took it to the garage, they tested it and said it was fine. when it cuts out the alternator workshop lights come on, but the garage say...


Is it a VW specialist? Ask them to put it on VAGCOM equipment (it's a software program which can connect to the ECU by a cable which plugs under the dash. If they don't have it or just generic software with less functionality, go to a VW specialist (independent if possible it'll be cheaper) and it should help identify the issues. Stalling at 30mph is scary
