  1. Hi, I’m hoping someone can help me with a problem I’m having on my 2009 Polo Match 60. The car intermittently will not start. Sometimes it is fine but other times all of the dashboard lights come on after you turn the ignition, you can hear a click but the engine does not crank. Eventually, it you try the ignition a number of times it will start and be fine. The battery voltage seemed low and the battery was pretty old so I’ve had that replaced. After this it was fine for a couple of days but today the same thing happened. I’ve also hooked up a multimeter and couldn’t see any current draw. The car also has an electric window fault that seems to be related - the passenger window will not wind down using the driver’s controller but usually works with the passenger controller. The driver’s controller worked immediately after the battery change but has now stopped working again. Any advice gratefully received....
  2. Hi there, after spending numerous hours in the freezing cold with a multimeter I can say that there isn't a wiring issues on the drivers door of my 2005 VW polo, this part (see image) is attached to the window motor on the drivers side door. Im assuming it's responsible for the 'one touch' feature with the windows as they are able to open and close without you having to hold the switch. However through some testing I have figured that this might be why both windows are working intermittently. I came to this conclusion when I turned the ignition switch on and pressed the window switch down on both sides of the car and got nothing. I then proceeded to remove the larger plug from the top of this part and place it back in and then to my surprise the windows worked, and then they stopped, the issue I'm having is that the windows didn't stop working after I turned the ignition off and then back on again, it was almost as if it were timed. There is no corrosion on any of the contacts and non of the pins/clamps are bent out of place. is it worth spending £35 to replace this part in hopes it fixes the issue or have I wondered from the beaten track. please advise thanks very much.
  3. Hi there I have a 13 year old 2005 VW Polo MK4 1.4 diesel 3 door. Just recently both front electric windows have stopped working intermittently. There is no clicking sound from either of the motors so that means there is no power being supplied to them and the windows are definitely not stuck because when they work they move with ease. There are no other electrical issues with the car, both electric mirrors work ant the central locking buttons on the driver door work with no problem and there are no issues with the wipers, dash lights, indicators, screen-wash pump. At first I thought it might be the 25 amp fuse but there is nothing wrong with it and just to prove it wasn't the fuse I replaced it and still nothing. One thing I can't wrap my head around is that both the window switches on the drivers door or the passenger door don't work yet the switches still light up when you turn the lights on which means the switches do have power to them. After seeing that the lights on the switches were working I tried the windows and still nothing. Would really appreciate it if someone knew more about this than I. Thanks for the help -Tom
  4. My left indicator is doing this strange thing every now and again and it's super irritating while I'm driving, it doesn't do it when indicating right but only does it on left When it does do it the indicator doesn't even come on, I've looked in the steering column and wiggled some wires about which seems to fix it for a short period of time and then it just does it again. Starting to think it's the actual switch but not sure, any help would be appreciated, thanks. Snapchat-276793547_000.mp4
  5. I don't have a lot of mechanical experience so I apologise if this is something simple. The electric window in my front passenger side door doesn't work, it's stuck closed. When I press the switch there's a clicking noise from the door but the window doesn't go down. Does anybody have any experience with this? I'm thinking that as there's a click that the switch works, but it sounds like either the motor doesn't work or the glass has come off the guides and become wedged shut. Any opinions?
  6. Hi wondered if anyone can help me. Recently installed electric Windows to my 6n2 however I'm after just a single switch to fit on the drivers side, instead of having the double switch and option to lock/unlock the car? Did VW ever make these? basically after a passenger switch however one that is big enough to fit in the door card (passenger switch too small) thanks Aaron
  7. Hello, I've got a 6n2 and i seem to have the same fault on both windows, when i use the switch to put the drivers side window down it will go do and stop but when i try to put it up it will go up dlightly then just go down so it bellow the seal then stay there and not move then il try put it up and it'll come up for abit and il have to push it the rest of the way so its closed. And on the drivers side it'll go down to where i want it then when i hold the switch so i goes up it goes up slowly then kind of just slows down and seems like its stuck, then il have to push it the rest of the way up whilst holding the switch. If anyone has any ideas or know what it could be ? Cheers Ben
  8. Hi There, and first I'd like to thank your forum (and others) for helping myself and my dad fit both parking sensors and cruise control to my polo and diagnose all manner of faults/tweaks on it. The fault on my polo is intermittent, and almost always follows a day of heavy rain, basically the steering light illuminates (wile driving or manuvering) and the power steering becomes heavy. Once this is triggered the next time the car starts the power steering may not start at all, and by switching it on and off a few times it'll eventually engage (with or without light and heavy steering). Our local VW garage identified it (with my persistence it was water ingress) that the connections of the pump and loom have water ingress and have had corrosion. Price to replace both the pump and the loom at about £1140 fitted! £1140 is a fair bit more than I'd like to spend, and I believe between my dad and I we have the skills to fix this ourselves, or at the least buy the parts for a local garage to fit for a lot less! The technical bits: I have a VCDS system and the fault is diagnosed (and agreed by the VW garage) as a short to ground, although currently its reset I believe it was on the reference voltage, when it reappears I'll post the exact fault. The controller is identified as: 6R0423156A Questions: 1.If I was to buy a replacement, can it be of a slightly different part number ie.6Q0423156? If so is this a direct drop in replacement or does it need some complex calibration? Suggested replacement parts: New: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TRW-POWER-STEERING-PUMP-6R0423156-6Q0423156-VW-POLO-LUPO-IBIZA-SKODA-FABIA-NEW-/200973776369?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2ecaf875f1 Different Part no:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-POLO-1-2-ELECTRIC-POWER-STEERING-PUMP-6Q0423156M-6Q1423051AD-6Q2423051R-/251360198249?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3a863c3e69 2. The garage was adamant that both the loom and the pump needed replacing, I can't personally see why the loom should fail (its just wires isnt it?) and might just need some tape to check its all sealed against water, to be honest the pump itself might still be ok and just need better water protection, what do you think? 3. Are there any service manuals/forum guides on the best way to access and replace the pump? Sorry for the long post and I hope its all in the right place, thanks in advance for the help.
