1993 VW Fox a/c blower does not work on 4 (high speed) It's not the switch for sure because I've by passed it and still no high speed.


This is not the resistor. There is a relay on the fuse board that makes the fan's full speed work, it must be replaced or refurbished. Any additional questions, please email me paulojosebaptista@hotmail.com Greetings from Brazil!

I lost the ignition key to my 93 volkswagon fox gl. What can I do?


If you have a local dealer visit them with your VIN and a certificate of title/ownership. They should be able to help you.

If not, replacing the ignition should not be difficult. Most auto parts stores sell ignition kits for this very reason.

My 1998 VW Jetta GL - Ignition Switch


It could just be out of adjustment. I recommend going to a dealership for the part. The VIN number should identify your car specs exactly to avoid getting the wrong part

Electrical problem 1993 Audi 90 CS


The 1993 90 instrument cluster is very sensitive.  Even having bulbs out can mess it up.  You should consider replacing the ignition switch.  It is easy you can do it yourself, do NOT let Audi dealer's service tell you it's $500 to do it.  You can get the part for less than 30 bucks on ebay.  Undo the screws under the steering wheel, take off the plastic, take out the 2 screws on the instrument cluster, take out the cluster enough to see the ignition switch.  THis is the tricky part:  get a small screw driver and LOOSEN the small screws that keep the ignition switch in place.Replace.  Re-tighten, put it all back and you're done.
Ignition switch is EVERYTHING in this car.  Oh, do not by the switch with the pink plastic where the key would go, buy the WHITE.

86 subaru gl wagon not firing.


I have the same problem with my 86 GL 4WD. One day it started to turn, and then lost all power. I couldn't even turn on the lights. I have played with the ignition switch wires, and gotten it to fire. I think there may be a short somewhere in the switch or the wires to the harness, but I have not isolated it yet. You might check your ignition switch and wiring...

No power to fuel pump or to pump fuse at fuse block


You can get wiring diagrams from autozone.com -- they have parts of repair manuals online. I have the smae problem but the person I got my 88 fox gl from wired up a switch going to the fuel pump that you have to leave on while driving. I"m probably giong to fix this soon. It looks like the wire powering the fuel pump relay comes from the ignition switch. So if the pump side of the relay is good, but aren't getting power, you may want to see if your ignition switch isn't providing power on one wire, going to the fuel pump relay.
