  1. I need some help with the wiring in 1999 beetle gls

    Car Audio
    So I have this radio that my cousin gave me. It has this display on it that says "video not available while vehicle is moving" (this message shows even when the car is parked) I was wondering if there was any way to wire it to a sensor to tell it when the car is moving and when it isn't?

  8. Don't know why it's leaking

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Noticed a leak underneath the car where the arrow is pointing in the photo. Don't know if this is coolant leaking down from a hose or if it's transmission fluid. It looks like it has water in it, so it's probably transmission fluid. If it is transmission fluid how do I stop the leak?
