#8 of 178 VW Golf 1.6 cl 1996
Jan 25, 2006 (9:13 am)
Changed a brake light bulb on a VW Golf 1.6 cl 1996 the other day and since then the electric windows have been going down by themselves one by one when ignition /engine is turned off? messed about with the bulbs again and fixed the lock which was broke (as I thought this could be affecting it) this was fine for an hour thought I'd solved it then it starts doing it again. Had to get windows up and pull fuse out to keep them up. Any ideas or has the car turned into Herbie

I've recently started having what I consider an electrical problem in my 99 golf gls. I've determined already that it is not the alternator. My digital clock, odometer, and tripometer remain on when the car is off and the key is taken out.
Sounds like the ignition switch is going bad. A good independent shop should be able to fix that for little $$$.
#10 of 178 94 Cabrio Wont Start, Alarm Is Disabling Ignition
Jan 27, 2006 (8:14 am)
My girlfriend's 1994 cabrio wont start. The alarm goes off everytime you open the door, put the key in the ignition, etc. I think the anti-theft is locking the ignition and fuel. Not sure how it got that way. I do know her car is a mess, the power locks dont work (so putting the key in the driver door to disarm the alarm wont work), the driver window mechanism got snagged, so we had to permanently shut the window,and it had starting problems that were fixed a couple weeks ago. Just a question as to how to disarm the alarm. I tried to disconnect the battery, but that didnt work.

#14 of 178 Door lock and security problem
Feb 19, 2006 (11:53 am)
I recently left my 2002 Golf TDI parked for several days.
Upon returning I got into the car as usual with the remote but noticed the interior safety light (lower left on door panel) remained on after closing the door. A few days later the remote quit working, (light was still staying on), I tried to reset the remote, no luck. The door lock control on the arm rest will still lock and unlock the doors, with the exception of the drivers door. The key will lock and unlock the drivers door only. Also the mirror adjustment has stopped working and the security system. I tried to take the panel off to investigate and only got a far as getting it loose from the door frame and where it locks over the window edge, couldn't figure out how to release it from the armrest. Any suggestions appreciated.
#15 of 178 Rear suspension MK3 1999 Golf 1.9 TDI

I have a Golf and there is a load knocking on the drivers side rear wheel every time I go over a bump. I had a bloke check out the shockers but they are fine. Is there a coupling or something or a common fault which someone is aware of? It sounds like the body is bouncing off the chassis. Any help or advise would be fantastic.
#16 of 178 power lock problem - 94 VW Golf
Mar 11, 2006 (1:55 pm)
I'm having a problem with the power locks in my '94 Golf. Whenever I lock or unlock the doors, the power lock motor in the rear hatch keeps running for about 30 seconds or so. Additionally, when I turn the key in the door, only some of the locks unlock(it is a four door). Had the same problem about 5 years ago and after three separate visits to a mechanic, he was able to correct the problem. My receipt indicates he "repaired broken lines in rear hatch" during one visit. Then and now, the problem began to occur during very cold weather and I may have turned the key quickly in one direction and then the other the first time the problem occurred. Does anyone have any ideas what is wrong with the locks and if a novice like me could fix it?
Thanks for any suggestions
