how do I turn off the windshield wipers on a Volkswagen cabriolet 1989, when its placed in the off position? the windshield wipers continue to move.
I originally put new main pump on which started whining after a week of driving and got hot and quit. I just replaced both transfer and main pump and after idling about 10 mins the main pump got hot and started whining. It will go away after a few seconds and pump will cool then start heating up again and whine. I replaced both pumps with quality parts. I don't know where to go next
My daughter was driving the car and the headlights went out and then the car died. The headlights will not turn on, the car will not turn over and the windshield wipers will not turn on. I can get the headlights to turn on with the bright light switch. The battery is new and it will not even turn over when I tried to jump it. The dash lights work, parking lights work and the radio works.

I have a 1991 VW Golf Cabriolet and my radiator fan is not switching off. It's drained the battery. I have replaced the relay but still not switching off. I left it a couple of days, jump started it and topped up the water, it ran fine for about 20 mins then the fan kicked in again- it's really loud like it's on overdrive or something and the only way to get it stopped it to take the relay out every time I stop the car. Any ideas?
fuse has been replaced. I'm lost.

I have an early 1991 Cabriolet (110K Miles) with a fuel tank leak, about 10 years ago I stopped driving due to leak. I live in Hawaii & and moving back to Ohio & plan on driving this car, will the 1990 recall cover the 91? Also do these things expire on a 20 year old car? Thanks
