For a few days, upon startup, I get the dashboard battery light and the Alternator Workshop message which turns off in about 6 seconds, but the battery light stays on. The battery is almost 2 years old. I took the car...

    As the title says, my 2003 GLX 4motion has a battery killing drain. Story goes, I'm the new owner of my Passat. Got it from some very untrustworthy people who said nothing was really wrong with it (I knew it was a lie, but I needed an awd car for the icy winters and crappy Michigan roads). Car...

    Got a B5.5 that won't crank. I have bench tested the starter and the replacement (used) starter, both worked outside the car but not on the car. Good voltage to starter, no voltage to trigger wire though. I have tried applying 12 volts directly to the solenoid with no results. The ground wire...
