Stefke Boss: I like dat sound before turning car on... xD So I keep it on, my services
are based on kilometers, so I know anyways when to do one... but nice
Conn Clissmann: Clear and simple video - many thanks. As James Monks mentioned in this
thread about his version 4, I tried this with a recently serviced 2000 Polo
1.0 (petrol) (3rd generation, I believe) and all I had to do is hold in the
trip-meter button for longer. At one stage, it came up Service OIL - I held
out longer and it worked - a return trip to the garage saved! Thanks for
the starting point.
Lamar E: Okay thank you sir, I will definitely be giving it a try, I have gotten
annoyed by the service light constantly beeping every time I start the car.
Lamar E: Please tell me how to do this on a VW Passat 2002?
peugeotCitroen2CV: No worries glad to help.
peugeotCitroen2CV: Its been a while since I've been in a passat but i think you hold the right
button in on the instrument cluster then turn on the ignition, keep the
button held in and turn the left button while it displays service on, the
service light should go out after that. Release both buttons, turn off the
ignition and turn it back on.
Molise Natie Maleeme: hi, I have a Polo Classic 2005 Model. Problem I have is that it has cold
air coming in even when the heater is turned off. It becomes so cold when
it picks up speed. the other thing is the heater just decided to give in
and I replaced the thermostat but it is just the same
anil gurung: thanks man its been buggin me for a while
Jorge S Uribe: Muy bueno. Lo voy a intentar con mi Polo 2006. Prendió el aviso de
mantenimiento y le faltan 5 mil kms. Thanks.
peugeotCitroen2CV: Thats good to know thanks.
richgleams: Hi my car is a Vw golf tdi 1.9 reg P 1997 I think.. We're do I find a
garage with that machine in Ealing London and were do I find the crankshaft
position sensor please?
Anthony Simiya: I'lL TH oyuM I uM I'm gT enouGh hmk IMOyummYtHink
peugeotCitroen2CV: possibly a sensor got damaged or not put back correctly like the crankshaft
position sensor. Get it to someone with a diagnostics machine (what year is
the mk3 is it obd compatible) and see what fault is coming up, if its going
into limp mode then it has some form of on board diagnostics system.
peugeotCitroen2CV: If your having problems with cowboys, go onto one of the VW forums first,
the members will know good VW mechanics. Btw im only guessing about the
crankshaft position sensor, if the glow plug light is on id check the glow
plugs, their relay, the wiring etc. Although it could possibly be a problem
that if you describe it in good details on a forum some member might know
right away what it is. Good luck
richgleams: Ok thanks for your help. I do what you said look it up on the internet. The
garage where I took was like cowboys as they had my car for 2 weeks and
could not fix it then I told my friend he looked at it after I bought a
second hand gear box and found out it was not the gear box but the linkage.
All a nightmare I have 3 Vw golf now as of that big mistake at that garage.
I love old cars as there much easy to work on. But since that happen I was
starting to hate them. But I do as you said. Thanks
James Monks: Great video, I had the same annoying service light on my mk 4 polo. Now its
gone so, thanks! Only difference was that with the mk 4 you don't rotate
the reset button, instead you just hold it down for longer :)
peugeotCitroen2CV: Im not very familiar with the ventilation system on the polo. But cold air
coming through when the heater dial is set to cold is normal, if the fan is
turned off then air will still come rushing through the cabin air intake,
the air recirculation button if activated should stop the air coming in so
fast, so should turning off the individual vents. If the inside doesnt warm
up the heater matrix could be gone or there is air in the coolant system
NiTrOxFiRe: Risolto grazie
peugeotCitroen2CV: Ah im not sure it would be obd compliant it might work with VAG com, but im
not too sure about VW's or their diagnostic system. Im from Northern
Ireland so i dont know where a vw specialist would be in london, start with
a google search for 'vw specialists in london' but a better bet would be to
try a UK based vw forum. The crankshaft position sensor should be round the
bellhousing area ie where the engine and gearbox meet assuming it reads the
position off the flywheel.
richgleams: Hi I have a mark 3 golf and the coil light keeps flashing, this has happen
since I changed the clutch. Now my car is in limp mode. Do you know how to
stop this coil light flashing please?? Thank you.
