FeddyBear posted a topic in VW TechnicalHi everyone! I'd like some help please. The key fob is not working for the Polo anymore (although it was fine yesterday). It won't unlock the doors remotely or start the ignition. The fob battery is fine as the fob still lights up (and so does the 2nd key I have). I can open the door manually by turning the key, so I can get inside the car. But I can't unlock all the doors and when I turn the ignition, the key turns and nothing happens. No dashboard, no engine, just nothing. I've checked the car's manual and looked online, but can't find a solution. I suspect I've simply triggered an engine immobilisation or SafeLock feature, but following steps in the car manual to deactivate these does not work. There is also no indicator light on my dashboard to tell me either of those 2 things are active (which apparently should happen even when the ignition is off). VW Polo 2013 1.2 engine 32k miles Any help appreciated. Thank you! Like this
xshanee posted a topic in General CarsFirst day of driving my first car, I was parked up with my car idling and I noticed in my mirror that my car was emitting a lot of fumes (bareing in mind it was warm out). I started to notice and strong smell of petrol, took no notice of it initially. Then my exhaust emissions warning light came on and my car began to struggle to stay on. I just turned the engine off and thought nothing of it. When I went to pull off, I noticed the car was being very sluggish and struggling to provide any power, I began to go up a steep hill and it became really apparent that something was wrong. The car hardly made it up the hill, was very jolty and the power felt like it kept coming on then cutting off. I pulled up once I made it up the hill and the warning light began to flash. The car continued to struggle to stay alive so I just turned it off and waited. I let the engine cool down, but no luck. Would really appreciate if someone could please advice what maybe wrong with my car. And the appox cost of what the repairs maybe. I only brought the car today, which has left me with little money as you can imagine. It was working brilliant until this happened. :confused: Thanks for reading Regards, Shane
