electrical issues...

hey JG, has anyone had any electrical issues on the WK? a few weeks back the seat heaters wouldn't turn on and last night the Nav unit was powering on/off while driving. Any thoughts? are they on the same fuse?

Re: electrical issues...

Check the battery terminals to make sure they're snug. Have you done any electrical mods?

Re: electrical issues...

no, haven't really done anything with electric. is the radio/seat heaters tied to the same fuse or electrical harness?

Re: electrical issues...

I'm not sure. Sounds like something may be going on in the wiring behind the dash. Maybe a loose connection or short.

Re: electrical issues...

after some research, it sounds like its the ignition switch. Anyone replaced this before? How much to have the shop do it?
