Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
I am not mechanically inclined anyway, but this problem is a new one. Just started few days aga, I only drive the car a few days a week, when it decides to act up, these are the problems I've noticed so far, they all occurr together: "brake" light indicater comes on, fan doesn't go on, no headlights, not even all day running lights, windshield wipers come on when I flick for high beams, they only come on for a few seconds while I'm press ing the arm, other than that they don't go on. I can park, turn the car off, come back and start it up, all of these problems will be gone, then next time I start it they may be back again. I'm not sure if I have noticed all of the problems yet,this is still quite new. when I mentioned it to my son, he thought it might be the relay, but the next time I mentioned it (don't think he was totally listening the first time), he thought there were too many problems for it to be a relay...asked if a chipmunk was living under the hood. Please Help!
I previously had a similar problem on a Toyota. Beleive it or not, the corrosion that started on the battery terminal worked its way into the wiring of the vehicle and eventually corroded all the wiring -- even fuse box. The car started doing strange things.
Maybe something to check on your car.
