We need more information. What version of VCDS are you running? what module was this code in?

Please post an autoscan using the latest 20.12 release of VCDS.

I hope that the included data is enough for you to be able to assist.

I don't know if it will make any difference but it might be an idea to update to the latest 20.12 version of VCDS.

Thank you very much Uwe, A vast knowledge as always.

Can I ask, is there an online database you use for this information that is freely available?

Many thanks

Andy

Many ask the question... the answer is "no". We have to "mine" the data from multiple sources.

I got a similar "unknown Fault" today, do you have an answer for this one too?
Car is a 2018 Tiguan SE, Latest VCDS with HEX-NET interface.
CEL came on but car's "info system" showed no problem. VCDS shows the following fault code.

Code:

"Control Module Input Power "A" Circuit Low"

-Uwe-
I don't like it when someone posts a problem and doesn't post the solution so here goes:
The error code U3501 was "cured" by simply recharging my battery. I don't drive as much since I retired (no commute) and Covid has made it even worse. However, after several weeks it became clear that my battery was on it's last legs so it was replaced today. My OEM battery lasted almost 3.5 years which is close to a record here in Las Vegas. I can't complain.

Have Fun!

Don

P.S. I have no idea what/where Input Power "A" circuit is. Is there also an Input Power "B" circuit? I guess its not really important at this point.
