Hi guys, just joined up and wanted to see if anyone can offer any advice on the gremlins that have started on my wifes polo.
Every now and then there is a loud beep, the power steering,radio,trip meter and clock seem to have a power interruption and switch off/reset. Also there are warning lights on dashboard, can be airbag, eps, abs, hand brake. If you stop, switch it off and restart it it clears and off you go. This can happen 5 times in an hour or not for 10 days! I checked all the fuses, all the earths in the engine bay and all were good. took it to a local VW specialist who read the codes and it logged up power interruption to EPS. He recommended it could be the Bordnets ECU so we bought a used one, had it coded into the car and it was ok for a week or so then it all started again
Also this time the central locking stopped working, and on putting ignition key in there was nothing, no lights no power nada! Ten minutes later, all was fine again and we took it back to the Specialist and only codes showing was power interruption to dash pod????
Pulling my hair out now and the Specialist is honest enough to say it would be a guessing game trying to find this intermittent problem, but says next step would be a dashpod change...but its a lot of money to spend if it doesnt cure it.
Anyone got any ideas or experiences with owt like this as the wife has lost confidence in the car and wont use it on her own anymore
