My Skoda Octavia's steering is gone heavy...

Hi,

I bought a 2006 Skoda Octavia TDI a few weeks ago. So tonight in the dash there's a red light on and suddenly the steering is very heavy. I don't know what's wrong with my automobile. I checked all the fuses.

My 2015 Audi Q3 won't start. Help!

I have a 2015 Audi Q3 and it does not want to turn on the engine. It's as if the security system has activated a short current for the engine as everything else turns on. How can I correct this?

My VW Transporter is vibrating...

Good day,

I am referring to a question sent in by Ken Maher (Ballyger, Co.Galway) on 16 March 2014. He asked about a 2004 VW Transporter that had a vibration at about 2,000rpm when under power/load. I am experiencing the exact same problem with my 2007 Transporter T5. Was there ever a reason other than the CV joints?

Why does my SEAT stop-start not work?

I have a 2011 SEAT Leon Ecomotive SE 1.6 diesel and the stop-start system is not working. It seems to have decided to stop working and when I try to use it the message on my dashboard is 'start/stop is not possible.' I have checked the tyres and the pressure and they seem to be within spec. Can you advise what I need to do to get it back working?

Thanks

Anne Marie

Does my dad's automobile need a new ECU?!

Done the pedal test on my dad's 2001 Opel Astra (it was running slow and drinking petrol) and got the codes p1122, p1120 and p1155; we were told these are to do with the automobile's computer and will cost in the region of €1,000 to replace the computer and reprogram. Is this correct or is it easily fixed?
