On a steering wheel are 2 pins. These pins turn the signals off as the wheel returns from making a left or right hand turn. They reset the blinker mechanism by bumping the blinker arm and pushing the arm back to the center position. You can sometimes see these little pins that reset the blinker if you look between the steering wheel and the steering wheel column. There is a little gap where the steering wheel is enabled to turn with out rubbing the column. You will also see a circular copper plate in there where the horn makes electrical contact by a little flat tension arm and rubs the copper surface as the wheel spins in either direction.
To repair a damage blinker pin, the steering wheel most likely has to be pulled off and the pin repaired and steering wheel returned back onto the column. Not a big job at all, just more of a pain then anything. Some steering wheels are on pretty tight on their splines and a puller may be needed. If the pins are still intact in the back of the steering wheel, then the blinker mechanism has a problem and is not be triggered to return to center by the pins.

These are activated by little push in switches located on the door frame. When you close the door, it pushed the pin switch in and disconnects the power from the inside lights. You should also check the light switch on the dash. There is a setting on the headlight switch usually that allows you to turn on the inside dome lights by that switch. It may be in that position and will keep your inside lights on until the switch is returned back to the normal position.

The sensor is very easy to remove. Usually it is just a bolt shaped sensor with one wire attached. An open end wrench can remove it, but be sure to have the replacement ready because the hole that is opened when removing the sensor will probably leak fluid until you replace the sensor with the new one. Have a rag ready.

Yes, the radiator should be checked first for anti-freeze level. If it is low, top it off and pour remaining fluid into the reserve tank to the proper level. Re-check after driving and then you may just fill the reservoir only if you like.

Not uncommon for the MkIV to have transmission problems; have your mechanic change the fluid and filter, and at the same time check the shift solenoids and the connecting harness - internal parts.
I got 2 TDIs and had both of them run into very similar problems. Make sure your mechanic is using the correct fluid type and filter!

It could be one of numerous problems - consult a reputable auto shop - you need someone that knows what they are talking about to physically look at the car to solve the problem - this will save you a lot of time and expense and heartache. ?
