either the water pump is bad and water is leaking out of the weep hole on the bottom of the water pump while the engine is running OR you have a blown head gasket that is letting coolant seep into a cylinder and it is being burned by the engine. Have another car follow you on the highway while doing about 60 MPH or 100KPH and then floor the gas on the car and see if the car following you can see any smoke or mist looking exhaust coming from your car. If they do see mist or smoke coming from your exhaust, you most likely have a blown head gasket that is allowing coolant to be burnt by a cylinder.

If you can't afford to repair the car at this time, if you keep your eye on the coolant level and refill it when it needs coolant, you could continue to drive the car until you save the money for the proper repair.

Much good luck.

If the door panel has never been removed then it could possibly be a bad speaker.

Being a 99 model it could also have a plastic liner under neath the door panel that has dry rotted and needs to be removed.

I'd place my wager on the speaker though.

If the panel has been removed check to make sure that you don't have any broken clips that attatch your door panel to the door.

The drive cycle is as follows
For all OBD2 VW's

OBD-II Drive Cycle Stages
The OBD-II Drive Cycle is an eight-stage course, as illustrated in the
chart on page 3. An explanation of each step is provided below.
Stage 1: Cold Start-The ECM determines the presence of a cold start
by comparing the engine coolant temperature to the ambient air
temperature during startup. The engine is considered cold when:
• Engine coolant temperature is below 122°F (50°C).
• Engine coolant and intake air temperatures are within 11°F (6°C) of
each other at startup.
During this period, the O2S heater, misfire, AIR, fuel system, and EVAP
monitors run.

Stage 2: Idle 2½ Minutes-Turn the air conditioning (A/C) and
headlights on to help the misfire monitor-the additional electrical loads
help even out combustion pulses. During this period, the O2S heater,
AIR, EVAP, misfire, and possibly fuel system (if operating in closed loop)
monitors run.

Stage 3: Accelerate-Prior to accelerating, turn off the A/C and
headlights (if possible). Open the throttle halfway until you reach
55 MPH (89 KPH). During acceleration, the misfire, fuel system, and
EVAP monitors run.

Stage 4: Steady State Cruise-During this portion of the cycle, the
O2S, AIR, EGR, EVAP, misfire, and fuel system monitors run.

Stage 5: Decelerate-Gradually coast down without applying the
brakes. Also, on manual transmission vehicles, remain in high gear and
do not press the clutch. During this period, the EGR, EVAP, and fuel
system monitors run.

Stage 6: Accelerate-Apply ¾ throttle until reaching 60 MPH (97 KPH).
During acceleration, the misfire, fuel system, and EVAP monitors run.

Stage 7: Steady State Cruise-During this period, the CAT, O2S, AIR,
EGR, EVAP, misfire, and fuel system monitors run.

Stage 8: Decelerate-Gradually coast down without applying the
brakes. Also, on manual transmission vehicles, remain in high gear and
do not press the clutch. During this portion of the Drive Cycle, the EGR,
EVAP, and fuel system monitors run.

You can try this a couple times, but if it doesn't work you should go to a VW specialty shop like the dealer or a shop that does mostly European cars and they can use the scan tool to force the car through readiness.

P0422 - Catalyst below threshold.

Catalytic converter is clogged or out of medium.

Replace it.


ACTUAL DIAGNOSTIC:

Fault Code Definition
Code P0422 indicates that the Bank 1 Main Catalytic Converter's emissions efficiency has fallen below the minimum allowable limit. This threshold is tracked by a Catalyst Monitoring Oxygen Sensor located on or near the outlet of the Catalytic Converter.

Symptoms

* Check Engine Light will illuminate
* In many cases, no abnormal symptoms may be noticed

Common Problems That Trigger the P0422 Code

* Defective Catalytic Converter
* Engine misfires have damaged the Catalytic Converter
* Internal engine damage resulting in high oil consumption and/or a leaking Head gasket has damaged the Catalytic Converter

Common Misdiagnoses

* Oxygen Sensors are replaced when the real problem is a damaged Catalyst
* Catalyst is replaced when the real problem is internal engine damage, which is producing elevated emissions levels
* Catalyst is replaced when a misfiring engine is the real problem
