    Electric issues

    Hi all, I have a 1997 1.8t it's developed 2 problems not sure if they're connected but worth asking. My entire dash gradually dies over a couple of seconds then springs back to life, it intermittent could happen every day or once a week, the other issue is once the car up to normal temp if I turn it off and try to restart it'll be really reluctant. Any thoughts would be hugely appreciated

    First problem I would whip the plastic engine cover off and check the earth on the engine for the coil packs. Mine did exactly this and I found the bolt had worked loose and come away causing some random issues with the dials and an annoying whine at 3krpm through the stereo.

    perhaps coolant sensor for the bad hot-starting?
