Having problems with your 2002 Volkswagen Golf ?
I have a 2002 Golf TDI. Whenever I hit the accelerator the headlights get dull then bright again. Sometimes they cut off but only for a split second. Other times the dash will go completely out, but again, only for a split second. The car's engine seems to be running fine though. The other night I got pulled over for a missing tail light. When I got home I kicked it out of frustration and it came back on. What's up with this car?
The tail light is a bad bulb, even though it came back on it needs to be replaced. Now for the dimming lights check the fuse panel located on top of the battery, pop the top off the fuse panel,to do this squeeze together the release tabs on either side of the fuse panel, look for a melted wire or a burn spot. This is probably your problem. also check the wire going to the alternator.
