    How can I tell if its my tail light circuit board or light bulb socket causing the problem? How much would either cost?
    My VW Jetta left tail light is out. The dealer said its not the fuse since the right tail light works. Ive replaced the bulbs and still nothing. They said it might be the circuit board?

      Need more information - does the left side turn signal and brake light work? Is only the tail light out (not working)?

      The left side turn signal and brake light work. The left tail light is out. That is the only problem.

      If there is no power on one side and the other side works then yes the circuit board is possible. 2011 vehicle out of warranty already? Do not have recent enough info to look at a wiring diagram for 2011 to assist further. Nobody is just gonna know which one, it has to be diagnosed by a person with a 12 volt testlight.

    Where can I look for restrictions to the defroster air flow ?
    I replaced the cabin air filter and there has been improvement, but the flow to the driver's side of the windshield is still much too low.

    Washer pump will not turn on.
    replaced with new pump. Verified pump OK when connected direct to battery.

      If the new pump works OK direct to battery, then check these items as next steps; fuse, wiring / connection at the pump, ground connection. Please post a reply with these test results for further assistance.

    How do I change a tail light?
    The only one that is out is the one that comes on when I turn on the lights. The marker lights, turn signal lights and break lights all work.

    How much should it cost to repair my scratched bumper?
    Someone hit my car -- how much should I ask for?

      The body shop repairs will vary by the individual shop even in the same location / area. Best bet is to have one or more auto body repair shops in your area provide an estimate after a thorough (and hands-on) inspection of the work needed. There is no accurate method to determine auto body repairs via the internet - for obvious reasons.

      To find a shop, you can try the 'Find-A-Shop' feature on the AutoMD website.

    Unpleasant smell inside the car.
    When the car warms up and especially when using the AC or heat, there is what my wife describes as an "electrical smell like a wire that is melted, et cetera." The smell is not noticeable outside the car or under the hood or from the engine. It causes her to have a ...

      It sounds like it can be a few components either the blower motor is getting ready to burn out or the blower resistor (they can cause the smell you described) I recommend you take your car to a air conditioning and electrical specialist in your area.

      Makes sense to me. Thanks! May have been the smelly Saturn that was in front of us right before the smell started up. The smell has lessened substantially.

    Dash gauges not working in my 85 Jetta diesel
    I removed the dash to install a new heater core and when put back none of the lights or gauges work on the dash. All wires and plugs have been double checked and are installed and secure. Any ideas?

      Remove the instrument gauges printed circuit (PC) board and examine the board for a broken / corroded copper trace. It could be the copper trace was braoken / disturbed during the instrument panel removal / replacement steps.
      Other than this possibility, there are the fuse holders being loosened, not gripping the fuse(s) tight. Also, check the ground cable and straps from the instrument panel.
