    Door Latch module(s)?

    I am having similar issues with my Golf. Not that a previous owner had f'ed with it, but the CCM has been acting wonky for some time. I suspect that when I wired up my multifunction steering wheel, there was a misplaced wire, and now there is a ghost in the machine. Sometimes the fob will...

    WTB ALH Turbo

    I've got one from a 2000 Golf. taken apart and cleaned around 92k mi, taken off at 137k mi. Been a while since I looked at it, but I think it still has the actuator. I don't know what shipping would be but what would you pay for the turbo?

    OBDeleven

    You just need to download the software from their website. I don't believe there is a charge to download it, but I'm not sure what OS it works with. I have it on an old windows XP laptop. The cable acts as the activation code. I have the Hex-Can version of the cable. How about the OBD...

    Hey, Falcon, I have a Ross Tech cable, but I'm looking for OBD eleven. Maybe we can do a swap. I'm in Pittsburgh. Do you have the Pro version?

    Won't go into gear with engine running

    It is either the throwout bearing, or the pressure plate on my Golf. Probably just going to replace to whole kit, since it has around 60k on it.

    Won't go into gear with engine running

    I had this same thing just happen to my Golf on Tuesday. It does move forward with my foot on the clutch, like I'm driving an Auto trans. At first I was thinking clutch cylinder, but I'm troubled now it is worse. What causes this?

    Fender/rocker panel rusting: what to do? Any recourse with dealer/VW?

    My rust is much worse than this... I've been putting it off for too long now, but I was well beyond the warranty period anyway. I think the splash guards make it worse... moisture collects and it doesn't dry out.

    Check your radiator/condenser fan operation NOW

    So I had the compressor replaced and the system recharged. Compressor clutch still doesn't kick in when AC switched on. But it does click when battery power is applied. Voltage going to compressor is 9v between the pins unplugged. So my question is what is the next most common part to fail...

    Check your radiator/condenser fan operation NOW

    Well, I was going to swap the clutch for the working used one, but when taking the nut off of the compressor pulley on the car, the nut sheered off :( Guess I'll be putting a whole new compressor on :( According to your last post, Jason, you say I shouldn't use a used compressor, as I'm not...

    Check your radiator/condenser fan operation NOW

    Thanks for the responses, dan and Jason. Being that my multimeter doesn't meas duty cyc, I was trying to test all the voltages I could. I applied battery 12v directly to compressor, and no clutch still... So I'm guessing it is the coil... Haven't measured the resistances yet. I was thinking it...

    Check your radiator/condenser fan operation NOW

    The trouble shooting guide, step twelve, says to test for a pulsing reference voltage at T14/3. Is this different than testing for voltage to a ground? It says this voltage originates from the FCM. So I'm confused, am I to test this with the T14 plugged in? I'm getting zero volts unplugged...

    AC is blowing hot air

    Thank fauxphox and ninedee, I have the same problem... went through two summers with it. It's awful and I don't even live in the warmer climates like you. I'm going to try to tackle this soon.
