  1. recently my arosa has been very difficult to start after turning it off and leaving it for a few minutes, it just keeps turning over and not starting, i was also driving yesterday and it just cut out. Ran diagnostics today and got 17672 PD Injector unit: cylinder 2 regulation range exceeded could this be causing my issues or is that irrelevant ?
  2. Was told today it could be a 'fuel inertia switch' does anyone know if an arosa has one of these and if so where is it located

    Scangauge not working

    there's a scangauge 2 which is physically larger and shows 4 values instead of 2 like this small version. i'm thinking it could be a fuse which is causing no power to be sent to the gauge
  4. Just got myself a scangauge e to measure my mpg, I tried it in my arosa and it wouldn't even turn on, I tried it in my sisters citreon c2 and it worked fine. Anyone have any ideas why it isn't working?

    Scangauge not working

    It was working when i had it plugged into my laptop a few days ago, seems as if it doesn't like the scangauge, quite annoying
  6. heard a lot of issues regarding injector wiring issues and also glow plugs so gunna change the glow pugs first as they're cheap, if the problem persists then injectors it is

Interior - Lupo GTI Heated Leather interior (not wired in), airbag removed & leather steering wheel fitted (original included), Golf GTI leather gearknob & gaitor, silver trim kit, lower dash & centre console colour coded to body, TT/GTI alloy pedals. Interior sound deadened with 5 layers of dynamat extreme in the front doors & rear quarters, 3 layers in bootlid, floor also deadened using matting & luxury underlay. Engine - Remapped to approx 116bhp - 176lb/ft torque, with full handbuilt stainless longlife exhaust system, BMC induction filter. Cambelt, tensioners & associated parts replaced at 70k, also replaced the water pump as all the belts were off (wasn't required though). Oil & filter changed at 68k, Engine cover body colur coded.

Stereo: Sony head unit, standard speakers will be put back in. Wheels: Artec PA repainted in super chrome (not actually chrome) Bad points: The boot release can stick at times (I am working to fix this), has a couple of chips in the driver doorwell where I closed the door on the seatbelt, The drivers mat has a hole in it from my heel! Other than that its sweet! Having owned this car for nearly 8yrs now I've decided that I've taken it as far as I possibly can & am now looking for a new project, probably of the Bavarian variety. There is lots of paperwork & receipts to go with this car, although the service stamps only go up to around 38k as I've done 90% of the work myself being a trained mechanic. The car has had an oil & filter change every 10k (I get it free so why not!) & as this has always been a daily driver I've not scrimped on anything so that its runs & drives properly, & if its need to be replaced I've always used genuine VAG parts where possible. Being a TDI it's easy to get 70MPG on a motorway run & also high figures round town, drivability has been improved imensly by the remap & tuning & the newly reconditoned brakes are scarily good (recently managed to lock up the fronts at 70mph!). I dont get on here much these days but will try to check back as & when possible. Any questions please ask Pictures: only changes since the advert have been that i don't have the kw's as i wanted the car a bit cheaper, instead it has fk rear springs with lupo gti shockers. also i changed the aerial as i couldn't receive any radio stations. few more pics:
