    I own a 2001.5 - 1.8T passat with 131 K miles. Recently noticed that upon starting the car the temp gauge slowly moves up to 190 and drops back to 90 after a few minutes of reaching the 190 mark and stays there at 90F. Further there is no heat in the car. Read on the forum that this could be due...

When it gets warmer it starts working again, and sometimes it works fine even in the cold. What can be the reason for...

    Sorry if repeat, but I did check the sticky posts and did a few searches... My cd player was working fine until I parked at Futureshop. I briefly fiddled with the front passengers seat because I accidently dropped a memory card, and then I went into the store. I came back and my cd player...

    I've left my parking lights on a couple of times and have since discovered that the light warning chime is not functioning. Does anyone know if it is tied into the left parking light? I have to replace that bulb, and was wondering if I have to go digging in the relay panel also. Yeah, I...
