Hey all, I recently picked up a 2004 GLI from someone in the San Diego area, and this car has been meticulously maintained, and has 72500 miles as of today. The engine bay is really clean, and I have records for all the services including the last one @70000miles, and the checklist the last mechanics went over, was perfect nothing wrong or in the yellow or red.
Heres my problem:
Twice in the past two weeks I have been in 3rd or 4th gear not driving aggressively, relaxed driving and the car will just shut off completely, flashing the battery icon at me. So i stop and start the car back up and there is no problem!
I recently got the battery checked and there was nothing else wrong. I was just wondering if anyone had any other ideas or thoughts on what could be the problem......or how to best direct the mechanic who last fixed it where to look.
The car drives perfectly normal otherwise, not a hiccup, and does not show a CEL or any other kind of light. Any help would be appreciated as I am unsure, I thought it might be the alternator but am not positive.
