Re: Wing Mirror Indicator Malfunctioning

Probably just a failing LED mirror indicator unit is my thoughts,may be poor connections in the mirror housing

Re: [Steering Problem] - VW POLO MRK 4

Hi your post is confusing :?: A Mk 4 would be 1994 - 99 you state it’s a 2007 polo thus making it a Mk 7 If this is correct then your 2007 polo does have PAS fluid , which can be accessed in the engine bay on the left side of the vehicle in front of the battery via a green screw cap to check the lev...

Re: Fitted a new speedo but car won’t start

I believe the new instrument cluster will need coding to the car for immobiliser and key remotes to work

If it’s a second hand unit that may be another issue

Re: 9N3 - Door lock cylinder does not stay in - Internal carrier plate replacement

The screw head rotates the barrel locking ring, seen in the OP picture in silver it’s like a C shape

Prone to falling out and landing in the bottom of the door if undone too far :?

Re: Intermittent rear wiper

I think possibly the timer relay has failed, so it’s too quick not allowing a full sweep of the screen. Although I can’t find a proper relay diagram online I’m sure there is a relay controlling it, it may be a separate item or integrated into the BCM , this you could call your local dealer about wor...

Re: Intermittent rear wiper

Does the wiper work ok if you wash the rear screen ? Ie does it do a full and continuous sweep while washing.

Re: 66 plate 1.4 tdi blue motion Stop Start

I totally agree with that , a new battery should have a good SOC but how long was it sitting on a shelf before it was sold?
Just a quick test could eliminate the battery as a issue 👍

Re: 66 plate 1.4 tdi blue motion Stop Start

Battery voltage is different to SOC, you can have 12.5 volts but also have only 25% SOC get the battery properly tested
Yes you will need a tool of some kind to check what the s/s voltage threshold is set at

Re: 66 plate 1.4 tdi blue motion Stop Start

Can I assume this car was bought second hand ? Maybe the previous owner didn’t like the stop/start feature and coded it out , this would give the same message as you have with no other warning lights on.I would have thought changing a battery for one with a good state of charge ie 80% + would normal...
