What would the likely cause be? I have tested voltage (gets 5 volts). I thought it was supposed to receive 12, but when I supply it with 12, I get a different code indicating voltage too high. Disconnected that wire and we're back to the original P0030 code. What should I check next?

Does clutch cable need adjustment or is it the shifter linkage?
About a week ago my A/C started not blowing as cold, now blows cold for a minuet after starting then gets hot. Also seems like in not getting outside air coming in WhEN ac off, it's also just blowing hot. My relay doesn't click when I turn on ac but I assume if it was blown ac wouldn't blow cold even for a minuet. I checked the open close levers/arms under dash. They're hooked up & moving freely. Checked refrigerant level & its @ full charge. Also no leaks... HELP ME.
The doors were locked, and the windows are intact.

Is it dangerous to drive the car when it needs work or replacement catalytic converter?
I'm trying to decide if I can pull my 2010 Golf behind my RV. It's a 2.5 with a 5 spd manual transmission. I know that I cannot with the automatic but the owners manual is quite vague about the 5 spd. The mechanics at the local VW dealership don't seem to think it will be a problem. I'm looking for any potential problems.
