  1. Thanks Pete for the quick reply. I've got a few more (hopeful) checks to do in daylight tomorrow so will look for the earth strap - still hoping it's fallen off as I spent ages looking for it with a torch to no avail! Cannot be bothered with a DIY job so I guess it's off to the garage for that and the temp sensor if the earth isn't a solution
  2. Hi, I have a 2002 Lupo GTI Firstly apologies for the easy question - my battery light came on today so I naturally assumed alternator so check voltage and no increase on voltmeter so wen ton to try and diagnose. Q1 - I cannot see an earth strap to the chassis, can anyone point it out on a photo or parts diagram (sorry!). I also assume there is a gearbox one too Q2 - if revved the battery light goes out (but can't see an increase on the voltmeter). Any ideas on cause? Bad connect (on earth I can find and hence revs might arc it)? Alternator diode (not sure what this is but have read some things on the forum). Just to throw something in (which makes me think earth) is that yesterday my water temp gauge fluctuated up and down... Any help would be a life saver

    Could you spare the petrol flap?
  5. Just removed the steering wheel to fit new indicator stalk. All fine except horn now beeps randomly when turning wheel. Couple of questions: Does the earth through wire through the centre of the wheel connect to the airbag or inner steering wheel (honestly didn't take notice when taking it off!) The ribbon came out when I took the wheel off (aarrgghh). Does anyone have a pic/diagram of the small white clip and spring on the rear of the steering wheel. It looks like they only go in one way but not sure it's right!Cheers

    Remote Key Fob

    I'm after a 2 button remote fob, not bothered about the blade or transponder (although will take these as I'm mucking about). Remote needs to be working (i.e. send a signal!)
  7. I have VCDS Lite (registered) and am trying to match the only key I have. The light on the fob lights and I've changed the battery to make sure. I have followed the instructions Here but to no avail. On thing I have noticed is block 007 (or 003) does not show any info as the guide suggests it should. I can now only suggest one of two things is happening: 1) I'm still doing it wrong; 2) my fob is knackered Any ideas?

    Which VAGCOM?

    Will the £9 VAGCOM (VCDS Lite) allow me to reprogramme keys? If not do you know anything (cheap) that will!?
  11. A bit more detail on the problem - changed the battery (multiple times) and check it against a receiver (one of theose in-shop testers) and it works. However it seems intermittent, sometime it lights, sometime it doesn't, sometimes it says on! Any ideas? If I was to get a new one do I have to go to a stealer?
  12. I have a seat arosa TDI and ONE key. The remote central locking now does not operate even though it was fine yesterday I've tried all the suggestions on this site and on other but I cannot get the key to operate the remote central locking (using the key works fine). The LED lights and have changed the battery just in case. HELP!

    Castellet Alloy Centres

    I read somewhere that Mk3 Golf alloy centres are a decent fit on these but need to get hold of a one to try. Anyone know if this is true?
