    So for the past month my 99 AEB has been going into limp mode every morning for work. It would occasionally do it when it was cold but now it's doing it constantly. I know how to get it out of limp mode but don't know what's causing it. Anyone have any solutions or know what might be causing it?

    2000 1.8t has a temp guage that reads cold even after running for an extended time. The heater is working. I replaced the temp control switch about a year ago. Is this a bad swith or do I need a thermostat? The engine runs rough at startup then seems fine after a couple minutes.

    Have a 2002 1.8T. Was having intermittent starter issues. Replaced starter twice, starter relay, ignition switch. Every time we connect the negative terminal, the starter motor starts running constantly. Lost. A point in the right direction would help!

    Lately my car has been burning through headlight bulbs. I install them, they work for a few days, then burn out again. :banghead: All the wire is intact and nothing seems to be fried. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I've dug through several phantom noise posts here, but mostly what I find are either relay issues or wire issues behind the passenger side of the dash. Whenever my '03 V6 GLX is on (even when climate control is off) I get a constant clicking, whirring and buzzing sound under the front of the...

But my parking sensor beep is still on, I tried hitting the button a couple of times, but it does the normal beep once then goes to a constant louder beep. If you put the car in drive it changes into...

    Just bought a 03 Passat wgn. The third brake light blinks constantly when I'm not on the brakes. Only does it when I have my headlights on at night(I think). When I am braking it will overide the blinking. It doesn't do it everytime, just every few miniutes. Got any suggestions of what it...

    Is the EVAP purge valve supposed to click constantly for as long as a few minutes at a time and then stop, only to start again a few minutes later? I replaced a busted vacuum valve on the EVAP system back when I first got the car, but I never did any research into whether other parts of the...
