    Good day gentlemen, A good friend of mine has some codes popping up on his 2015 Passat TDI regarding the coolant pump. Autoscan below. Has anybody run into this one before? Can anybody confirm where this pump is located? By the looks of the 3 codes it almost looks like it has come...

    Cannot connect to 46-Central Conv. 2013 Golf TDI

    Hi Folks, I haven't been on here in ages. My old 2006 Jetta was working so well my VCDS cable was collecting dust in the garage. I just bought a low mileage (17k) 2013 Golf TDI. It's one of the "fixed" ones that VW has flooded the local market with recently. I was trying to brush the cobwebs...

    Mk5 12v Accessory Sockets (Cigarette Lighters) Dead Short

    Hi Folks, I know it's a long shot, but I thought I'd reach out to the experts on here to see if anybody has run into this problem before. I figure if there's a bad spot in this model where a wire chafes through, then mine shouldn't be an isolated incident. My 2006 A5 Jetta has dead 12v...

    Need assistance with Mk4 rear wiper circuit

    Hi Folks, Is there anybody here with intimate knowledge of the Mk4 rear wiper circuit? I'm having an issue with mine that seems strange, and I can't quite figure it out. I think the only thing left that I have not done is bench test the rear wiper motor (Which is a brand new aftermarket...

    19456 - Glow Plug Indictor Light (K29)

    I assume this code means that there is an issue with this circuit in the instrument cluster? I don't see it in the Rosstech Wiki code section, and I can't find much info on the code otherwise. The car is working fine, and the glow plug light appears to be working fine. However, when I tried to...

    Question regarding electronic damage while welding

    Hi Folks, I am not sure if this is anything I need to worry about or not, but I just got a call from the VW Autobody shop. (My car is currently in having some panels replaced under the VW corrosion warranty). Apparently while welding one of the new quarter panels on, a "wire penetrated another...

    Euro Car Exports

    Hi Folks, I'm just doing a little research this morning and thought one of you fine folks might have some knowledge on the topic of exporting/shipping a car from Europe (Germany) to North America. Do any of you know what costs are involved (ballpark)? I'm in an east coast port city, so that is...

    1.8t New Beetle Hatch Spoiler Operation

    Hi Folks, My 2000 New Beetle (TDI, 5spd) needed a new hatch, so I replaced it with a hatch w/spoiler from a 2000 1.8t New Beetle. Now, I didn't specifically seek a 1.8t hatch...it was just close by, and it was clean and cheap. It's now installed and painted. I'm curious about making the factory...

    LF: Later ALH turbo bracket to block lower bolt size or part number

    Hi Folks, I'm looking for the VW part # of the bolt that attaches the turbo bracket to the block on the later ALH TDI cars. This would be the bolt used on the later cars where the bracket is mounted slightly above the oil return line port in the block. I've looked at any online VW parts fiche...

    2006 Audi Wagon Part Assist Sensor Fault

    Hi Folks, I had a look at a friend's Audi wagon today. He has a fault code for one of the rear park assist sensors. Is this likely to be a faulty sensor, or more likely a wiring or connection issue? I guess the question should be, is it worth it to pull the rear bumper off and troubleshoot...

    Car's mileage as indicated by Autoscan?

    Hi Folks, Sorry if this is a dumb question... The mileage, as indicated by a VCDS autoscan is simply the mileage that is saved in the instrument cluster, correct? The car's actual mileage or the mileage as saved in the instrument cluster is not written or saved elsewhere in the car's system...

    Questions on potential TDI Beetle Project...

    Hey Guys, I'm scrounging around looking for a project for this coming winter, and I found a car that I'm going to see this week. It's a '98 Beetle TDI 5spd. It was advertised as having a "bad lifter". (Apparently diagnosed by a local VW shop). The owner told me this: "I took the car home...
