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?
VW Mechanic: vwtech0405, VW Technician replied 3 years ago
Its called the TIPM module located under the fuse box under the hood .
