    Son's 2000 golf MK4 immobilizer activated

    This is a complete shot in the dark but I had a similar issue with a Volvo some years ago, the ecu was coming up as bad so we replaced the ECU a with a good tested one, the car cranked ok but would not fire yet we had power at the ECU. The battery went flat so we took another battery out to the...

    Caddy DPF Issue

    I completely agree, but I’ve had 7 of these vans, some with and some without DPF a and never had an issue before, I have a golf GTD a with the same EA288 base engine and DPF and none have ever behaved like this van does. I’ll get the data as VWT6 has suggested and see if that tells me anything...

    Caddy DPF Issue

    Thanks that’s really helpful, it Just worries me that it’s generating that amount of soot in such a short space of time, maybe the filters are so much better that they trap that amount of soot. whilst I understand the whole 25g is the level at which a regen is triggered I couldn’t find anything...

    I had an a3 some years back that would randomly misfire with low fuel pressure, we finally traced it down to the screen on the in tank fuel pump which randomly clogged depending on fuel level. VW actually were aware of the issue and modified the pump which solved the issue The loss of power...

    Caddy DPF Issue

    Thanks Uwe, the issue I have is that the van had done a motorway run the day before and on the last regen, which was the one before that I made sure it finished. My wife had been complaining that it kept doing a regen every couple of days our old van which had the ea189 with the same use was...

    Caddy DPF Issue

    Thanks for the reoly - the plot thickens a little so based on your info I kept an eye on what the van was doing and going out this morning it started a regen cycle just as i got home so I've read the data as in the scan below, from what I can see its done just 113 miles since the last regen and...

    Caddy DPF Issue

    We have a caddy that the DPF seems to be regenerating every couple of days, its used for short journeys but we've only had it for about 2 weeks as an approved VW used so its under dealer warranty My suspicion is there is either a faulty sensor or the DPF is very clogged, I've run a scan along...

    Caddy SA Reverse Camera

    Today I checked the coding of the unit and it will accept a coding for a low line RVC, nothing changes on the screen but then again nothing is connected, on my golf the screen changed simply by ticking the box that the camera was installed. Does anyone know if thats correct or there is...

    Caddy SA Reverse Camera

    Looking for a little advice here.. Just bought a 2016 Caddy last week and I want to put in a reverse camera, there seems to be some conflicting advice on connecting the RVC to the headunit and even if it will support it, apparently the headunit doesnt support the RVC but you can buy at great...
