    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I can't start my '81 CIS pickup. I read to check the coil, you should ground a test light and touch on the positive terminal (15) to see if you have voltage, and that it should be 12v or about the same as your battery with the ignition switch on. I had 13 volts at my battery. When I checked the...

  12. stall in the heat 90+ degrees

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I have a gas truck, 1.7 engine. Some component in the fuel or ignition system seams to be the cause of stalling. The engine will stall after driving a while on a hot day. I suspect the ignition switch, the coil, the fuel pump relay wires, and possibly the ignition control unit. The ICU gets hot...

    Hello again, on to the next issue I'm attempting to resolve. The rear hatch on my Rabbit does not open with key fob or interior release.
