Dumb question, but are you flooring it making the wheels spin? If so, the EPC light will come on if your tires lose traction; that's normal.

Read the first thread in this forum. You need to post model specific questions in the model specific forums; NOT in the Lounge.
1 Fault Found:

008 - Implausible Signal - Intermittent
This is a common failure on some VWs; especially 1999-2004 models....
Get ready for the rest of the cloth to start sagging. A-pillars, headliner, c-pillars, door trim. Whatever adhesive VW used, it ain't holding up.
I'd check bolt pattern & offset. There may be a listing under a different make that has the same bolt pattern.
There's a wheel specific to the WRC: OZ Superturismo WRCs:
Possible, but you would need to test it to find out.
For OEM replacements, I go to:
They may be far for some people, but nobody beats their prices on OEM parts; and they're a VW dealership.
1. ISVs don't fail often.
2. You can test the ISV to see if it is bad. There's a test method outlined in the Bentley manual using a multi-meter.
3. Check for vacuum leaks throughout the engine....
If you rent it out for $50, you may never get it back. Why not buy it, add yourself to the VCDS map-searchable locator thread in the VAG-COM forum, and charge people a small fee for scanning and...
In theory a smaller overall wheel/tire diameter would decrease your MPGs as more rotations are required to cover the same distance. However, there are too many other factors that would make it...
I think all AT VWs prior to the MKV models had junk transmissions. I know the MKIVs w/ATs are avoided like the plague. MKIIIs aren't any better.
Maybe the previous owner installed the wrong tie rods. There are two brands of steering racks on these cars: TRW & ZF. The tie rods are not interchangeable.
Looks like there is. On alarm module pinout T10/5 looks like it goes to another harness T2t/1 that ties into the trunk release solenoid circuit on the closed side of the interior release switch. If...
Possibly. I'll take a look at the wiring diagrams to see what I find.
There's another micro-switch (#4 in the picture) inside the latch mechanism housing. This switch tells the car if the hatch/trunk is open/closed (and operates the interior light). You need to...
It is not connected directly to the latch mechanism. If you look on the back of the lock cylinder there's a flat circle shaped disk that turns when you turn the key. There is a micro-switch with a...
