Top is clearly fastened properly but the alarm still constantly sounds when moving from a standing stop.
The center read-out in the dash has gone to yellow at the top and red about 3/4 of the rest of the bottom. There are no longer any didgits in the area where it used to read out the speedo,ect. Has there been any repair put out or does anything need know who can repair it. It's pretty hard to sell a car without most everything working. HELP PLEASE!!!!

I had my car towed to a shop. They told me that I needed a new ECU. I was told by some that I could do it at home. Others told me that I would have to have it programmed. Can I do it in my yard??

I started driving my moms '04 Jetta diesel tdi last week after the car had been in our garage and not been started only 2 times . I had to inflate 3 tires, give it a jump and it was running good w/out any problems until yesterday the coolant/water light came on. I add coolant/water and the light stays on and starts to overheat. Is it normal for hose clamps or whatever to fall off? Unfortunately I'm the youngest of 4 sisters and like my dad they don't even know how to change a flat. So please, can someone give me some advice and car advice only, you can imagine what I've been told to do with clamps etc... I can't afford to take this car to a VW dealer I'm hoping it's just something simple that on a long shot I could correct myself. Thank You very much

Since Aug. 2013 I have had three new batteries in my vehicle. The dealer keeps saying it is the two way remote system that was installed in my vehicle that could be causing the problem. This vehicle was purchased from a VW dealer and was pre owned.
The day I went to test drive it the sales person could not get the VW remote to open the door, they had to manually open the door and the vehicle would not start, they had to give it a boost, then it started right away. Then we went for a test drive, came back and said "I will think about it". Next day I returned and wanted to test drive it again, again it would not start, it had to be boosted. After an other test drive, I said "I liked the vehicle, but was concerned about it not starting", I was told that they would put in a brand new battery, so I bought the vehicle. The first battery lasted about 16 months, the second battery (AGM battery) lasted about 25 months and the third battery is still working at the moment. These batteries die in the Winter time when it's cold. I think something must be draining the battery, even these days it's warm and the interior lights do no always come on when I turn off the ignition or take out the key, they do come on when I open the door. In the Winter time I do not have time to get my key in to the ignition before the interior lights turn off. Checking on the internet I found one person saying that the EVL MODULE DREW DOWN THE BATTERY AND THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT START. IT WAS FIXED WITH A SOFTWARE UPDATE. I have mentioned this to my dealer, and they say they don't know what the EVL module is, there suggestion was to put a solar panel on the dash and plug it in to the lighter socket in the Winter, and they would re wire the socket so that it would be live when the vehicle is off. Not the best solution, I hope you are able to come up with a better solution for my dilemma!
Bye for now,

Car stalls after driving about 30-40 min in 90 degrees +. Problem occurs faster the hotter it is. Stop car, restart it and fires back up perfectly. Drive about 20-60 seconds car stalls again. Often times I can spam the gas petal and it will kick the car back on. Car runs perfectly and idles perfectly. No check engine light or codes. In the last 3 months I've replaced spark plugs, fuel filter/pump, Maf sensor, coil, cleaned throttle body, taken out and checked and inspected alternator at specialist, Air filter, injectors cleaned.
