Volkswagen Golf ProblemsDriver Door Electronic Switches Work Intermittently
The driver door wiring loom cracks and degrades with time due to weathering and frequent opening and closing of the door. This problem affects the normal operation of all electronic components of the door including, but not limited to:
-Electric Door Locks
-Fuel Filler Door Release
-Interior Lights Stay On at All Times
-Power Side Mirrors
The correction for this issue is to replace the driver side door wiring harness. For security purposes, the doors can be locked with the key. The interior lights should be shut of manually, and through the multi function display in the gauge cluster to prevent battery drain.
Shifting issues due to internal problems in high mileage automatic transmissions can be difficult to resolve without transmission replacement.
