Weird electrical problem
I just bought my '03 DSG Mach a couple weeks ago and now I've got a weird issue.
The ABS light and trac control light have been on since I bought the car but the salesman said it was because the previous owner used a tuner to disable to the TC...not so sure about that because of the ABS light but whatever.
Last Saturday morning I went out for a drive, no issues. A couple hours later my wife and I were about to go to a pool party when the car wouldn't start. I pulled the key out of the ignition and noticed that the odometer stayed on but only displayed dashes, the Service Engine Soon, ABS and TC lights were staying on.
I tried starting the car again but couldn't hear the fuel pump priming so I figured maybe something was wrong with the key/PATS. Next up was to start pulling fuses. None were fried but I came across fuse number five which is for the instrument cluster, traction control switch. Pulled that fused, all the lights turned off and the car "magically" started up. The gauges didn't fire up immediately but start working about 15 seconds after cranking.
I put the fuse back in and the same lights come back on but at least the car starts. I've been driving it without the fuse in because I don't want to drain the battery.
Any ideas? I can't think of anything that could be causing this.
Edit: Forgot to mention that with fuse number 5 in place, the THEFT light doesn't flash when the key is out of the ignition. Removal of the fuse and that light starts functioning normal.
