    HELP!! My electricals went HAYWIRE yesterday and no clue what I did or how to troubleshoot

    Seeking non-VW advice

    Hey guys. I'm considering changing my car... maybe... perhaps - I've not fully made my mind up.

    Advise On A Ford

    Sorry about the swearing in the title... Just wondered if anyone could offer any advise on this. Basically, my nephew was stuck in a bit of a rut at work.
