The heater/air condition controls do not light up. Are they suppose to? If so, where is the fuse box?
Old age has worn them ragged. Stick shift is sloppy and finding gears is getting harder and harder
Whenever I lock the doors with key, they immediately unlock and remain unlocked. Do you know what may be causing this? It has never happened before and all of a sudden just started to act this way and does every attempt now. Suggestion(s) on how to repair?
which sensor controls the spark for spark plug in the engine for the vw eurovan 2003
Below the tachometer
An intermitten problem that now is constant. Driver door is always locked, even when key is in ignition. Passenger door cycles constantly when key is used to unlock it and keep cycling until door is shut and relocked. I got problem to stop for a bit when I covered the sliding door contacts with tape.
Even after replacing plugs and ignitions coils,the scanner CEL diagnostics code still reads 'random misfire detected on P0300 or P0305'. It then surges, hesitates and shudders when in motion after a stop like after a stop light or in stop n go traffic. My trusted mechanic says it requires replacement of a leaky gasket causing oil to enter the chambers and costs $800. Any advice is welcome.

We have changed the wires and spark plugs along with a new air filter, fuel filter and fuel pump(in the tank) better but still being somewhat problematic. its not setting any codes.
I'm pretty sure my sweet 03 Eurovan needs a new transmission and I think it's a tricky job to get right so I want a place with some experience with this vehicle to do the job. Can you recommend the best/most experienced shop in the west?
I'm in Marin County, and I have "warrantee" that might cover some/most of the costs in a certified shop.
Can you advise and thanks much,

Cold or hot, I'll crank the starter for up to 10 seconds, but it doesn't start. Then when I retry it starts immediately???
It goes off after stopping and restarting. The light is a steady amber. What repairs are necessary?
Reverse works fine, van will sometimes shift, sometimes not. When it is shifting it is very erratic and shifts up and down with no change in pedal pressure. Sometimes only stays in first or second rarely going to third even at high rpm's. Any tips on possible electrical solutions would be helpful. Thanks
