fuse pantel dose not say which fuse is for accessories have checked them all out with a tester they all work what's nex t

I noticed about 3 weeks from now when i got a triangle that doesn't want to turn off on my dash.
When diagnosed also it showed clutch torque sensor,could it be the cause and how can it be fixed?

Throwing codes p0608 and p0121
TB will not adapt. Reads error on vagcom. ECP light stays on. ABS light on since i purchased car a year ago. Check engine on light intermittently.

Towing a trailer 1500 miles the performance dropped off substantially with downshifting becoming more pronounced as the trip wore on. Difficult to maintain hwy. speeds. 93 octane (from 89) fuel produced a temporary boost in power that faded on subsequent tanks of 93. 3.2 engine. Now afraid to tow the trailer until the problem is diagnosed and repaired.

What would the likely cause be? I have tested voltage (gets 5 volts). I thought it was supposed to receive 12, but when I supply it with 12, I get a different code indicating voltage too high. Disconnected that wire and we're back to the original P0030 code. What should I check next?

While driving the car stalls but still drives then the esp light comes on and after a few seconds the car cuts out and when I restart the car goes into limb mode

There's a hole in the oil cooler of this 2000 VW Beetle and I think I've found the part online but how much would it cost roughly to have it replaced at a shop? I can't seem to find out through the repair estimate tool. Thanks!

The problem just happened and I waited for about four min and the fan still has not cut off. So I unplugged the battery. What part do I need to have replaced

change battery now car wont start and parking brake malfunction light came on

My TDI Jetta stopped running the same week as the scandal broke news. I was quoted $6000 in repairs after being charged a $900 diagnostic fee by my mechanic. i still owed $8000 on the car and decided to wait out the scandal and not spend thousands of dollars on repairs on a vw that if nothing else just lost a ton of value. Finally, the long awaited buyback claims are in motion but one of the qualifying rules is it needed to be running as of July 28th(ish) 2016. What do I do? This car has been a nightmare for me. I got scammed just like everyone else. How will they know if it had been running? Is there a way for them to tell? Is there a quick fix that can get it running just enough to make it to the dealership? I do not want to spend another dime on this piece. The buyback doesn't even cover the loss I've already accrued by owning this car.
Thank you for reading. Help!!

Im just trying to see if i have the tools to do it. I also would like to know how long it should take.and if it is a Feasible fix at home job

We ran out of gas and since added gas and the car still won't start

He set the cables up backwards when he jumped it. The battery isn't fried and niether are any fuses. Why won't it start or even attempt to putter? All lights turn on and same with fans. The radio wont tho. Someone said it may be the computer? My friend said my car should have a safety on it so nothing gets hurt when stuff like that happens? any help? costs? diagnosis?

went to change my headlight lowbeam and the mechanic at the store said it was the wires not the light and he could not fix it that i would have to go to the dealer or where i bought the car.

OK, I went to Pick N Pull and snagged a brain box and MAF sensor from an 04 Golf. Now it starts and stops right away.
I see a light on the dash that depicts a car in profile with a key running along the running board. Is this a security issue related the ECM swap?

When changing gears it bucks and if you push accelerator petal to floor no response

due to key not being recognized by computer,my car only starts 1 out of 9 - 10 times. Sometimes disconnecting battery(which is new) helps but it appears to be getting worse. I'm told only vw dealer can fix it and its very expensive. Any advice?

Light just went on today.

Warning light Just appeared
what action should I take

Usually after driving for about 30'minutes or so I will start to feel my car rattle. It only happens at higher speeds and when I'm accelerating. As soon as I step off the gas it stops rattling. If I use cruise cromtol it constantly rattles until turned off. It's only got 124k on it. Fresh oil change. Any idea why?

Common causes for ABS light illumination?

delay on take off and miss fire

The front passenger door does not lock, and the interior lock/unlock light on the door does not turn orange like the other 3 doors when they are locked. It seems to work just fine at times, but then suddenly it won't light up or lock. What could be the problem and how much would it cost to fix the problem?

That's all I have, I'm looking at the car to maybe buy it.

It lurches slightly in second gear, too. After the engine has run for a while, the lurching stops. This just started yesterday, Oct 15. I let out the clutch very slowly when I start out, but it lurches as soon as I release it. Is this a sign of the clutch failing?

my beetle was siting for about a year in my garage but now that I put on new spark plugs and new batteries it starts but not for long, I start the car but in a few moments the car stops ruining. I started the car again now it only cranks what do I do can anyone help me?
