Why don't you use terminal 15 from the potential distributors in central electrics?
Install an inline fuse holder with appropriate fuse.

Golf mk4 / Re: Need help with 1.8t
« Last post by Nino on Today at 08:01 »
Using vagcom while car is running, check the engine section and go to measuring blocks I cannot remember which block you read but if you cycle them you will notice that you will eventually get to one that will show the mass airflow reading, this will confirm that your MAF is working so you can rule that out.

Your first error code is related to the battery being disconnected at some point, your second error code is your MAF, i would recommend that you buy some electronic contact cleaner and use that to clean up your MAF, or even see if you have a friend that has the same engine that you could maybe borrow their MAF to test on your car.

Do you by any chance have an induction kit? If its a K&N that has the cone coated in cleaning oil these are known for killing MAFs.

I would hazzard a guess that you have a boost leak, check every single boost pipe, vac hose especially the turbo inlet pipe from the MAF going down to the turbo, check all the little vac lines under the inlet manifold and the pancake pipe connecting to your side mount intercooler.

Failing that worse case it could be the turbo :(

Has anyone had a tracker fitted? I noticed the VW configurator allows you to include the Vodafone Protect and Connect 6. The website mentions 25% discount on insurance with this fitted, so slightly tempted as I work away some weeks. So any recommendations would be much appreciated.

The 25% discount looks as if it only applies to motor home and caravans fitted with Vodafone Protect and Connect 5 or 6 that are insured with Caravan Guard Insurance.

Hi, thanks for the reply, I tried unplugging the MAF and it still runs the same, So i checked the plug that goes into the maf, I noted my Actual maf has 5 pins but my plug only has for pins and one little green blanking plug where the 1st wire would be?

This was with 21st century motors. Ask for Lewis Jackson and tell him Lee Owen referred you. They have a similar deal to what I had but it's now £298 a month with no deposit.

Golf mk7 / Re: Current delivery times?
« Last post by Tamzildj on 25 April 2017, 23:32 »
I ordered at the start of the month and had an initial delivery date for the end of the may. A day later it was delayed until the end of June due to "stock issues".
if the delivery keeps getting put back does this show on the "my VW" app or is that useless?

It's a company car with Lex, so I'm only seeing what's on the lex portal and not the VW  website or app.

I have the Autowatch Ghost fitted to mine and its worked flawlessly. Irrespective of whether thieves bypass the OBD or have the keys, without the code which is inputted by a series of self selected/programmed button presses, the car won't start.

Mind you, still didn't stop someone from having a crack at breaking into my house for the keys recently.

Also use a disklok following that when parked overnight or for any length of time.
