As my thread title explains, my !985 Cabriolet stopped running and now has a strange problem. The car has always run great up until a couple days ago. One morning I went out to start the car and it just turned over with no hint of wanting to start or sputter. Also, every couple times I tried to start it, the car would continue to turn over even after I turned the ignition off and pulled the key out. Each time this happens during diagnostic tests i have been running, I have to run up to the front of the car and disconnect the battery as not to run the starter for more than a few seconds. I am not getting spark anymore and I have even replaced the coil that I was told by the auto parts store was bad.
Is it possible that I have three separate problems that all showed themselves at the same time? Seems very unlikely. Are these problems connected in some way? I would love to hear any Ideas from some of you VW masters. Thanks so much for reading!
