My radio and CD player work in my 2005 Volkswagen jetta 2.5 but the mp3 fldr button doesn't what could it?
is it possible that the problem is in the torque convertor area
Driving down the freeway and the red steering wheel like came on flashed three times and beeped than turned off. Drove 30 mile home and nothing wrong. When to the store, light didn't come back on and made it there and back. Just started it again no light or anything. Does that mean I have a problem or a mistaken light. I was also at the time bumping with my subwoofers shaking the car very nicely with the bass...
Have searched for reason for this code. Replaced EVAP cannister, purge valve, gas cap, oil cap, MAS, Cleaned throttle body, and replaced Valve Cover. (pending codes-P2279 Air intake system leak. P0171 System too lean bank 1 & P0507 Idle control system higher than expected. I cleaned throttle body. replaced oil fill cap, gas cap, Coils, etc... Last year I replaced Valve cover (bad PCV ) and code went away until I tightened a screw and broke it. Recently replaced valve cover again and down to P2279 only I think I may not have cleaned the breather hose or other things properly at the time and tripped the P2279 code again?
How can I check to see IF that was the problem- other than replacing again and making sure I clean out attached hoses correctly? What ever the cause of P2279 the Jetta has amazing response/performance. I don't feel anything wrong while driving it? Used propane,water & carb cleaner, to find vacuum but came up empty? Any advice or opinions would be appreciated.
i have 11V dc @ compressor is it + or - energized?
It will not smoke or burn oil if I don't preach atleast a hour or drive time and it only smokes when I slow down and take off again .
Engine light is on so I cant pass a smog check. Car runs fine and leaks just a very small bit of oil..nothing major. Everything else seems to working just fine on the vehicle
I was driving down the road and my speedometer just dropped to 0 mph so i don't know how fast i am going. Just wondering what I need to fix the problem and need to know where the speed sensor is located in the engine bay.
This is similar to my previous question about electrical issues with the car. At random times, with the AC on full blast, I will notice a burning smell from the vents. It will go away after a while, but honestly I'm worried the car may explode on me.
I'm assuming this is an electrical issue. About a year ago, my windows began rolling up and down on their own. This includes the sunroof which will open at random times. The radio and lights work fine, and I can easily roll the windows back up if they open on their own.
Why does a 2005 Jetta GLI Automatic transmission Jerks when shifting fro first to second?
Jetta, 1.8 turbo, 6 speed manual transmission, having trouble pushing shifter into 1st gear, balance gears are ok and smooth. No issues in pick up and driving, only annoying during traffic time, and I have to lift up in 2nd gear because I'm unable to push into 1st gear. Sometimes reverse gives issues, but not that as bad as 1st. 1st gear sometimes can work, but I have shift really fast and sometimes, very seldom it will allow me to shift in 1st, any advise would be very much appreciated, thanks!
when I turn my ac and heat on no air will blow out until the highest setting (4) but when on 4 the air that is blowing is air from the outside so it is not the ac or heat. I replaced the fan switch and that made it work for about a week. it just broke again. please help me
