    Looking for the part that lights up the selected gear for the shifter on an automatic

    Older cars have a light bulb there, but I popped off the trim piece around the shifter, and it looks like it's a small circuit board of some sort. I didn't want to pull the board out, until I can make sure I can get a replacement. But even at night, I can barely see which gear I've selected...

    Do I need to use some sort of whacky european brake fluid on the golf?

    Maybe I'll just hit it with some rust reformer. How does that stuff work? I wouldn't have to sand it down to the bare metal? Also, unrelated, do these cars been when it drops below 40 degrees? I just got beeped at, and the temp on the dash was flashing. Scared me for a second.

    That's what I thought. I'll swap it out before I hit my next oil change.

    How thick is the metal on the oil drain pan? I got under the golf for the first time the other day, to change the oil. Everything looked good underneath, no rust at all, except a worrisome amount of rust on the oil pan. I figured that I would put in a new pan next time I change the oil, but...

    I had just gotten the golf, 2013 and still had the original battery in it. So yeah, shit battery for sure. When the battery died, I just had a cheap little 12v tapped into the fuse, with nothing in the 12v at all.

    That's good to know about the fuse box, I'll have to spend some time in it to make sure I get the right diagram. I just popped it in F34, that's either electric seats or lumbar support. It didn't have a fuse in there, and I don't think I have lumbar support. Plugged the tap in, and my phone...

    Yeah, my grocery-getter has hot 12v, and I often leave my phone charging all day when I am at work, no issues with that ever. How did you wire your dashcam up? Did you go into the fuse box?

    First I was trying to add an always on cigarette lighter into the glovebox so I could charge my phone if the car isn't on. But I just ordered a dash cam, it has a motion sensor for when it's parked, but it needs constant power for that to work. It's not a huge deal if I can't use that mode...

    Yeah, that's why I don't really want to go back into that fuse. The fuse diagram I printed didn't have #35 listed, but another diagram says #35 is Suspension control module

    What is a good constant 12v in the interior fuse box to tap? A few weeks ago, I went into #35, there wasn't a fuse there, and was a hot 12v, but it was killing my battery in just a few hours. Not even with anything hooked up to the outlet that I added. I have since gotten a new battery, but...

    What did you do to your MK6 2.5 today?

    Still settling in with my new-to-me 2013 2.5l. Last week I put in a new, bigger battery, the stock one was still in the car. Changed the air filters, swapped the plugs and coils. Just those few things and it feels like a new car. I had a feeling that I was burning a lot of gas when idle, so...

    Ok cool, thanks. Just wanted to make sure one wasn't better than the other before I bought a set. A different question. Does the MK6 move the front wipers when you start/stop the car? I noticed that they are up higher when I'm driving it, then it seems to move them down a few mm when I turn...

    If I have a choice, are metal coils better, or the ones with the rubber insolation around the metal legs?
