I bought a new door jamb switch because the car alarm kept going on. I got the door panel off, but I can't find the location of where to put the switch. The problem is occuring alot. Its very annoying.
Car was running fine and then while on the expressway it started feeling weird. I got it home and checked the trans fluid everything was fine, great color and right to the correct level. I tried putting it in reverse and it went forward. Car was revving high and not shifting. (Limp Mode)
When I was in park i revved the engine a little bit and let it go back to idle and then the car went in Reverse, Started to drive it and when it shifts into 2nd gear it stays there. I was getting a emission code and mechanic told me I need a Cat. Convertor, But then he was saying that because of the emmision problem it damaged the Transmission. Could this be true?
This problem started on Friday 6/8/12 by hesitating to crank since my gas was on Empty. I filled the tank and it drove fine all weekend but yesterday 6/11/12 it started hesitating to crank but always cranked and would run fine but as soon as I put it in gear it would cut off. It had a 1/2 tank of gas so that was not the problem. Please advise.

NO accidents, No Collisions. My Supplemtal Restraint System Warning Light Came On. A Day Later my Passenger Warning Light Came on. The light Came on while driving a long distance. My main concern is, hoping the air bags dont deploy while driving over speed bumps or braking at a stop light....Might have to disconnect the passenger air bag module too be safe. still uncertain how to handle this....
My mechanic told me that it'll cost eleven hundrend US dollars to fix the right rear window for my Passat W8. He said that the motor needs to be replaced. Does it really cost that much?

I'd appreciate your help.

I know I have an after market alarm that started bugging out on me. i manually disabled it. A week later when I would drive and put on my blinkers. I could hear a buzzing noise acoming from the dash nd the battery light would come on along with the passenger seat belt picture(with no one in the passenger seat). A week later i drive to work. On my break I tried to drive my car but it didn't start. It doesn't make a noise or anything when I turn the switch.
