Replaced the ignition coil as well which they recommended and still nothing. I’ve got a replacement ignition switch from my local VW parts supplier but have no clue how to fit it.
It’s now got a permanent engine light which I can’t clear with code “unknown c0300”. Anyone have an idea what this is?

Hello Finleye2000. Please tell me how do you change the camshaft position sensor, where is located ? I didn't find him, if you can tell me exactly the position of this sensor. Thank you.

Hey guys i also have a problem with my polo playa the car starts but when driving it just stalls and drains the battery. It idles fine for hours when not driving but as soon as i leave the yard on the way it just cuts out completly with no dash board lights. Alternator is charging i checked and car doesnt start by key when you turn the key nothing happens but if u direct it straight to the battery it starts. What could be the problem. Please help
