    Ive been dealing with an A/C issue for a while, ever since last summer. A black on black car is hot enough as it is and with no A/C, it sucks. I took it to the local specialist, not the stealership, this guy knows his stuff and has already helped me with many issues. Anyway, he looked over it...

    I've got a 2007 2.0T with leatherette seats and I have had no issues with the heated seats until this fall. Odd thing is - the driver's side the seat bottom heats up just not the back rest. ?? Passenger side is fine. There must be a wire that broke or became disconected. Does any one have a...

    Ok, so here's the situation. I wired my Harman Kardon Drive + Play into my car so it turns on and off with the ignition. When i turn the key, it turns on for a second, then shuts off every time. I wired it to the 75X lug under the dash and grounded it, but I don't know why it doesn't stay on...

    Dear everyone, This is my first post here. Hope you can help me. I have a 98 VW passat 1.8T automatic. The idle is always around 800 normally. But recently, sometimes the idle reduced to 500 and the car began to vibrate. The worse, the engine light is on today. When I plug out and plug in the...

    This Concerns installing a Pioneer Avic D3, to replace the Monsoon HU, in my 2005 B5.5. Presently still have the stock, remote control style, antenna up there, and also thinking of replacing it, with the OEM VW Shark Fin, particularly, the Phaeton one, which also has a GPS antenna built into it...

    I was looking at the CD changer that is mounted in the trunk of my 2000 Passat. I believe that it is original but I am not sure because it matches all the pictures in the manual and mounts to the built in rack. When I slide this unit out and look at the electrical connection, it "appears" to...

    I have the weirdest problem. I have a hardwired Passport 8500 which has it's own fuse. It worked perfect for a year and a half. But recently it's starting blowing it's fuse as soon as I turn the key to on. The detector works fine when connected with the cigarette lighter. There's no damage to...

    I bought a wired FM Modulator Relay to hook my Sirius Starmate Replay directly to the Antenna on my stock non-monsoon radio. However I apparently need some sort of adapter to convert the european antenna plug (not sure of the official name for it) to a Motorla antenna plug and then another to...

    Can someone of you audio experts please tell me where the pre wired CD Changer cable is actually located. I've read lots of posts about it being in the trunk but where can I find it? Is it in the First Aid compartment behind the carpeting? Also, if anyone has pics of this it would be an added bonus!

    I installed one [I really like it – easy mod] of these a couple of years ago, but I haven’t needed to change my battery yet. I remembered that a few people hard wired there’s into their car. I was wondering if there was anything special you did, or just connected the 12v to the positive side...
