Customer Question
Hi, my secondary air...

Hi, my secondary air pump keeps blowing. I suspect the relays but I don't know which one it is

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

100.000 roughly. It has been starting normally but this morning the battery was dead. I connected the charger and the blower keeps running

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your VW?

1998 New beetle 2.0

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your New Beetle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I normally do. I disconnected the blower to let the battery charge. It is running also without the key in the ignition

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thanks
