1995 Seat Ibiza 6K

Recommended Posts


Alright, so. It was either this or a Polski Fiat.

"Dad, we need a small car, not a microscopic one..."

Three years in our hands, and still going.


I've decided to keep a diary of what is going on with the car, and hopefully find helpful advice for whatever breaks next. 


I've been writing about my sickly little Beeza here for a while now, 'thankfully' the reason why I created the topic is currently hidden underneath a disabled throttle position actuator until I purchase a brand new one.


Anyways, in continuation from the previous aging thread, the car is still juddering.

Replaced the dustributor with another one and set the timing mark to 'a tiny bit left' of what the factory setting was, as factory is 500RPM apparently.


Could the coil be cutting out intermittently? It is ironic that I am an electrician and that my car has various electrical gremlins (though not as bad as some that I've seen).


I will have to take a look at a regulator and brush kit then, as dvderlm stated in the old post.


Thank you everyone for your patience!

My car seemed to have pneumatic central locking in the past as my locks have pistons with vacuum hoses attached to them. 


I will have to try and find where the pump and computer are located, pump in the boot and computer under the dashboard somewhere?


Maybe I can revive this system with some third party hardware.


There is also a second hand unit quite away from me, so if the system was completely ripped out for some reason, I could just reconnect all of the wiring. (And it is pretty cheap IMO)


Any help on the location of these things would be greatly appreciated!

Apparently one of the previous owners hated central locking and decided to rip everything out?

I could only find a hidden plastic piston under the fuel filler cap, and three colour coded wires on the other!


So I need to find a pump and a remote module to operate it. My doors have pneumatic locks with hoses going to them, so maybe I can make use of what VW already gave me, lucky me. I hope there are no leaks.

      We have a fix for our threads here at ClubPolo. If you've used photobucket over the years you would be aware of their T&C's have changed, this has caused an abundant of issues for us, especially on our older topics.

      I've just bought a Polo for my girlfriend after having a 6n. The engine even management light came on, on the way home from the garage. We took the car back and of course the light never came back. 
      I borrowed a scanner from a friend and it came up with the following codes. Help with how to fix these would be much appreciated! 
      Engine control module - 01314 : Check DTC Memory. 
      Engine speed sensor (g28) - 16706 : No signal : P0322. 
      Airbag deactivation warning lamp - passenger side : 01578. 
      High pressure sensor (g65) - 00819 static signal too low. 
      The not so bad sounding ones.. 
      Loudspeaker (s) front - 00852 sporadic open circuit. 
      Heated outside mirrors - 00920 : drivers side (z4) passenger side (z5) 
      Supply voltage B+ - 00532 : signal too low
      Radio - 01304 : 004 no signal/communication 
      Supply voltage - terminal 30 - 00668 : signal too low. 
      Power train data bus: missing message from a/c controller - p1635 : 18043
      Heated rear window (z1) short circuit to positive : 00975 
      Drive battery voltage - 01598
      There's also a section for a 'readiness test' it failed on the following.. 
      -o2 sensor
      -heated o2
      -EGR system 
      Obviously the top ones are the worst but would like to get rid of all/most of them. 
      I just scanned my mk5 gti and no faults were found. ?

      Hi All, 
      im a complete noob to this stuff but trying to educate myself. 
      I have a polo 6n - 1996. 
      somewhere down the line it has had an engine change to a 1.4 16 valve DOHC - ENGINE CODE AFH i believe. 
      can someone please point me or tell me the product code the the throttle body and mine has had it. 
      i have two codes but when i check online, neither of them match up to my engine. 
      036133064d or f or 030133064d or f 
      ANY HELP would be very much appreciated.

      Hi so I'm pretty new to this site but have bumped into a problem with my Polo and not sure where my next move is.
      So i bought some LED bulbs from Halfords for my number plate lights and after fitting them I turned my lights on to check them but they didn't work, so i decided to put my old ones back in but now the normal bulbs didn't work either. As i went to drive home i realised on my journey home that i also had no Dash illumination lights either and couldn't actually see how fast i was going. My first thought was a fuse problem so the next day i check the fuses and checked the user manual and found that they share the same fuse so obviously it must have been the fuse...  NOT! the fuse was fine and so were all my other fuses as i pulled them out one by one. After a little research online i found that someone had replaced their light switch (the dial below the drivers air blowers to turn the headlamps on) so i ordered a new light switch. Once that arrived I unplugged my old light switch and plugged in my new one... Nothing. so after replacing the bulbs, fuses and now replacing the light switch too I'm stuck and not really sure where to go next. If someone could please help ill be much appreciated!!! Thanks.
