Hey Everyone. Normally these failure videos come out on Tuesday. I had some audio issues so we are a little bit behind. Oddly enough I had ordered some new audio gear on Sunday. Gotta love that timing. 🙂 Today are are looking at how Volkswagen ignition switches fail. These switches have been failing forever. We are going to look at some ways that can happen.

Sponsor of the day
Today’s show is sponsored by Deutsche Auto Parts. They are the VW and Audi parts experts. They have great prices and awesome service. Plus they work really hard on a ton of VW DIY videos. Paul and the fellas at DAP are awesome.
