High revs when lights are on
« on: 11 May 2016, 21:17 »
Hi all, having a problem with my mk1 golf gti with a kr engine. When you turn the side lights on the engine revs to about 2500rpm? Any ideas?

Alternator issue? A place to start investigating at least...

Have you got the box that controls the idle in the loom (under the dash, two relay size square plugs). These fail, try in plugging it, if it makes a difference it's probably this...
