Let me ask you this all this happen at the same time especially the wiper issue ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
not really.. changed the battery because old one wasn't holding voltage.. thats when wiper acted funny when voltage was low. My main concern is the fuel level gauge not working... I might have an other body control module from an other car.. Where is it located?
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 2 years ago.
Its called the TIPM module located under the fuse box under the hood .
