I have a 199.5 vw jetta vr6 AFP!I am getting many electrical short to ground codes and i cleaned the terminals under the battery box and the car is still running really rough and really rich! I noticed that on the alternator there is a visible nut that is on a screw and there is no wire attached to it! The kid i bought the car from just had the alternator replaced. The camshaft sensor also had oil in the plug and was bad and i replaced it and still runs rough and when i down shift it pops like a lil bit of backfiring going on! My MIL and ABS and a the other lights in the middle cluster will not illuminate and my temp gauge is also not moving.I am going to check the converter to see if it is clogged but i want to figure out the electrical short faults that i am getting!I need to know how the alternator on the AFP VR6 engine is grounded I cannot find anything online helping me! I have cleaned all the grounds under plenum and battery box and on relay panel! Here is the scan!

like power windows where are they
seatbelts are totally locked
windshield wiper still displays even though there is no problem ac still blowing out cool air even though compressor is running
smoke is coming out from under the hood, temp is 190 almost immediately and in minutes running at 250+ and the temp light goes on. had new thermostat installed. that didn't work so the mechanic cut 2 hoses near the firewall, he said antifreeze was leaking into the car. then he replaced the antifreeze overflow and there is something floating in it. running worse than took me hours to drive what should have been a 10 minute drive. I called him back and was told to take it somewhere else. Any idea what the problem could be? I took the car to auto one and was told not to run the car this way, so now what??? This happens whenever I get into the car.
how much is the cost to maintenance this type of car? the car has 115k miles. how much is the cost for repair the ABS sensor? Thank you
just started recently, turn key on and both fans start to run wide open. they do so no matter of temp. or if A/C or Defroster is on or not. happens every time.
While back fan stopped blowing through the vents. The other day, started blowing through the vents again on its own. Today - nothing. How can I fix this. Where is the relay switch
on the 1999 VW Jetta? Thanks
just bought car,seems to be a draw on battery upon hooking/unhooking terminal. muffler also split open..any ideas? return new mass air flow sensor?
checked starter and alternator also they tested ok. car ran a few days but ended up dead a few more times. We cannot figure out what is killing the battery. The radio no longer works after this ordeal though. but the fuse looks to be ok. go figure. Any suggestions??
change belt
It was getting hard to get it into 1st gear. Removed the boot and found the flange is broken in two. Need to get the shifter out of the way to replace the flange. Now 2nd and 4th are very hard to hit. Thanks.
Is a constant problem. Don't know diagnostic codes.
