There has to be a less expensive way to deal with poor design. Any suggestions?
Part cost is $1400. Moisture seems to have gotten to first unit.
About 6 Months ago the Washer fluid light came on and I took my 2009 VW Jetta to the VW Dealership and the said I needed a new Washer fluid Bottle and Sensor so they replaced the Bottle and Sensor. About a Month ago the light came back on and would go out once the Car was on for a bit now the light stays on all the time and it is annoying. Everything works fine and the Washer fluid is full. What is the problem?
My 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio will not start, but will crank. It was running perfectly normal all day. I have been driving it back and forth between class and home all day, and no problems. However, when I went to start my car tonight it would not start, but only crank. The engine is getting fuel. We checked all the fuses, fluids, warning lights ect. We still can't figure out why it will not start. If someone could give me some tips or help that would be great.
And plugs and wires to
I had a coolant leak. Replaced the flange mounted on the engine. Restarted the car, no leaks. However, now after letting the car warm up the engine develops a knock and trips the Check Engine Line. Codes are for misfires (P0300,P0301,P0304). I replaced coils, plugs and wires about 20k ago so I don't think its that. The knock only occurs after the engine is warm, I can drive it about 15 miles before it occurs and it only comes on when the car is idling.

Whenever I lock the doors with key, they immediately unlock and remain unlocked. Do you know what may be causing this? It has never happened before and all of a sudden just started to act this way and does every attempt now. Suggestion(s) on how to repair?

First drive of the day, early morning after rain, my engine light was blinking on and off, and car sounded like it was going to stall, started shaking on and off, then it was fine after driving for about 5 minutes. Diagnostics said it was misfiring.
There was no check engine light before airing my tires up. Can this cause the check engine light to turn on?
I have a 1998 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition. I tried putting in a different battery cause the current one kept dying and wouldn't hold charge. Ever since then the car has idled weirdly and tries to bog itself down and kill itself. It used to be driveable but not anymore. Please tell me any and all problems that it could be. I currently think it could be a sensor or throttle body failure and maybe even water in the gas tank. Thank you

Can a 2007 Volkswagen Passat Wagon transmission be repaired? When we turn the car off, and then turn it back on, it will sometimes shift properly. Sometimes there is just a feeling of slipping, but then it catches.
we have found the obd 2 system on automobiles the most inaccurate hardware on a car, why is it still being used?
of course the repair shops love being able to blame it for their untrained unskilled mechanics,
