I had the same issue with my 2001 Cabrio. They also fixed the brake light switch but I noticed that if my key turned past the normal turn on it would stick and that is when my headlights didn't work. Just turn it to the normal position and no problems!

My husband said that you need a new eyelet connector that you can get at Auto Zone. Should be an easy fix.
#106 of 109 Window issues
Nov 02, 2012 (8:25 am)
I am having the same problems of the windo issues. I bought a 2002 Cabrio. I had a new key programmed. THe back windows rolled up and down fine. Someone put the key in the drivers door to lock it and the windows rolled down and now wont rolled up. THe drivers window doesnt go up or down and the passenger windo goes up and down only a few inches. Now the key spins all the way in the door lock.
Is there any suggesstions. i have never delt with this type of car. Thanks in advance.
#107 of 109 Wacky Electrical Issues
Jan 10, 2013 (7:57 am)
Having some very strange electrical issues occurring in my daughter's '99 Cabrio (83K). First the speedometer/tach went out. The speedometer would go crazy sometimes, not work at all others. Noticed that it would work if we turned ignition key a certain way. So we replaced the ignition switch. Speed/tach worked for about 8 miles and then went out again. It works intermittently now, maybe once a week.
About two months later, the ABS light went on. Air bags check out though.
Most recently, when we use the blinkers both sides blink like crazy, but if we hit the brakes they don't work at all!! Also driver's side parking light (below headlight) and rear parking light are out (they both went at the same time). Bulbs are working though.
I'm worried if I take this to the mechanic (whom I do trust) he's going to charge $1000 for all the labor I think is involved in tracking down all these shorts.
Any comments and ideas greatly appreciated. Thanks.
