    Hi all This is my first post on the forums. I recently bought a 2013 Caddy 1.6 When wiring a light to the rear roof light the fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse but now I have no power on the dashboard when I turn my key as normal. I have checked all other fuses and they seem fine...

  7. Golf 7 (type BQ) 2017 - 2020
    Hi, Not sure which thread to post this in so apologies. I have a 2016 Golf hatch mk7. Unfortunately, the car battery died a couple of days ago and had to be replaced, which was fine. Since this has happened, for some reason, whenever I go to unlock/lock the car with the key fob all the doors...
  8. Maintenance & Service
    The stop-start function is failing on my 2011 Golf Plus 1.6 TDI. New batteries cost £250-325 plus fitting. Is it worth it? How long will the battery last? It's been in the car at least five years. This car is part of the dieselgate class action. Can I just fit a cheaper non stop-start battery?
  9. Golf 4 (type 1J) 1997 - 2003
    Hi all, I had my Golf Mk4 sit in the garage for ~1 month without starting it and accidentally left a USB plug in the cigarette lighter. Appears like that one sucked my battery completely empty, even the doors on the car wouldn't open (electric doors apparently). The AA came and helped me...
  10. Golf 5 (type 1K) 2003 - 2009
    Hello everyone, A couple of days ago, the rear brake lights on my car were stuck on. I turned off the car completely without realising, and the next day they were still on. I tried starting the car, but obviously the battery got drained. I jump started it with a booster pack and it was fine. I...

  13. Beetle Classic (type 1) 1938 - 2004
    Have fitted speakers in card below rear seat. But this means the back of one speaker, ie. a very strong magnet, is touching the battery. Can this have an adverse effect on the battery in the long term?
  14. Polo 3 - (type 6N1 & 6N2) 1994 - 2003
    I'm posting on behalf of my girlfriend; she has a 1.4 petrol Polo 3, Y reg, 2001. Over the last couple of days, it hasn't been able to start because the battery isn't charged enough - I think. However it can quite easily be jump-started from my Golf. I have checked everything obvious, e.g...
  15. Passat 6 - (type 3C) 2005 - 2011
    Hi, I'm hoping someone out there may be able to help with an idea as to what is causing my battery to drain overnight. I have had an auto electrician look at it for about 6 or 7 hours now but he he's running out of ideas and I'm running out of patience (and money). I have a 2008 Passat Estate...
  16. General Chat
    Since yesterday (31/12/14) I can't seem to start my car, it first happens when I tried to turn on the engine to go to work in the morning, I turned the key and the engine was just "chugging" and wouldn't start properly. After a few attempts the oil symbol flashed up, so I went and purchased some...

    Hey, I'd like to install a cigarette lighter in the boot of my '06 Passat 1.9 TDi. (Maybe there is one in there already, but I can't find it!) Uses: A mini boot fridge. To charge radio controlled airplane batteries. To power a small 7 or 8 inch monitor for max 2 hours. All of these not...

  19. Polo 3 - (type 6N1 & 6N2) 1994 - 2003
    I have a Y reg 1.4 polo. The battery died on it and got changed over. 3 days later the new battery died so got it replaced again, this made me think it was the alternator that had died so battery wasn't charging. I got the alternator changed two days ago and seems to be running fine but last...
  20. Polo 5 - (type 6R) 2010 - 2014
    Hello - help please. I'm looking after a 1999 Polo while the owner is abroad. He's asked me turn it over occasionally. I went to do that for the first time, and the lights came on the display, but just a click - no sound of engine turning over. I'm hoping it's just the battery. Can I safely...
