  1. Seatbelt sensor - New seats - different wiring

    Electronics (8G)
    Hi guys, I have a new to me type s and the cloth seats looked bad so I removed then and fitted some leather seats. The problem is that the leather seats don't sense that the seat belt is plugged in. This is on both front seats so the alarm sounds throughout the journey with both seat belts...

    Hi, I recently tried to fit a new stereo in my 2008 mk8 but the unit didn't work and so refitted the factory headunit. However now the dashboard display/clock is no longer working or the radio itself. Also the central locking isn't working too. Firstly I disconnected and reconnected the...

  6. Satnav Disconnect/turn off sat nav

    Electronics (8G)
    I have had an aftermarket double-din receiver installed in my 2.2 EX for sometime now. Obviously this means the standard sat nav screen is redundant but that's not really an issue for me. However, it used to click off after a few seconds when I didn't agree with the safety warning but since...
  7. MPG Mpg reading

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
