      Does the seat heat work on either front? I'd be up for buying the heating element from under the fabric, if you have a working one to cut out and ship with the plug.

      Thanks again guys - sounds like when it warms up a little I'm going to have to trace that pin-4 wire and possible do another ignition switch replacement- maybe the new one was defective. When I do...

      Soooo, it gets weirder. On the stereo harness, 7 is constant 12v, 5 is jumpered to 7, and 4 is also constant 12v+. Nothing was switched 12v. (I have a 99.5, with the 2000+ style wiring harness,...

      Thanks for the tips. The radio did this when I bought the van, and I replaced the ignition switch within the first 6 months of ownership, and radio remained constant. Guess I'll just have to bust...
    7. '99 Weekender Stereo Head Unit - Rewire to Switch from Battery to Ignition Power?

      My weekender's factory stereo was on constant 12v from the engine battery - I had to remember to turn the power off on it when I turned the van off, or drain the battery. It always seemed dumb to me...

      It's fiberglass, so more fiberglass, bondo, etc can be used. If the crack is all the way through and likely to re-crack with use, some metal reinforcement should be glassed in on the bottom.

      Can't wait to see what you come up with. I've been considering pulling my Kulseat base and replacing it with a box for a 3rd battery + solar/shore charge controllers, inverter, etc. and making it...

      How are you going to position the kulseat base so that it can swivel? The original location would have it jamming against the wall and the driver's seat. Are you going to use a spare front seat on...

      Could anyone provide more details or pictures on getting at the bolt by the solenoid? Are there only two bolts? Is there any ground strap on a stud there like the lower bolt, or should I just be...

      Picked up a new microcontrolled charger and put the battery on it overnight, and the charge went from 12.4/.5 to 12.7/.8. Popped it back in, and got the same thing.

      VagCom didn't find any codes, voltmeter only showed 12.4v across the terminals. All the fusible links on the battery are solid. Mechanic friend suspects charging issue. Next step for that is...

      '99 EV Won't Start

      Just tried to run out for lunch and the van wouldn't start. It made a kind of straining noise, and then nothing. It was like when the battery is dead, but... different. There may or may not have...
