Yeah, I'm confused myself. I just listed my car on the recall site you gave me so let's see if NHTSA can help me.

Just an update.

I got off the phone with VW and it was a pain. I filed a complaint on the link you provided me but here's what they told me.

According to their records, they did a software fix on the module. It is only if the software fix did not fix the problem, then they will need to do a hardware replacement. But because it worked, then I do not qualify for hardware replacement, even if it's broken now. And because I waited 3 years to bring it up, it definitely won't qualify. I told them that my error light turned on several years ago and we called them but they said it was not covered under the recall so we left the problem as is and I finally had the time to work on it.

They said that even if this is true, I replaced the part and me touching it will void the recall fix.

They said that they can investigate this further but it will cost me $140 (by the hour) and if they can make a case for me.

Background Info:
I always go to the same dealer to do all the work, including recalls, that I purchased the car from. When the error light turned back on again, they told me that the recall doesn't cover it. This is the first time for me working with a new dealer but they gave me the same story.

I also purchased the ABS module brand new from eBay. Before I did, I called the dealer to give them my VIN so they can give me the correct model number for the ABS. They may give me grief for that upon inspection.

Options:

They gave me several options.
1 - Put the original part back in the car and troubleshoot it. I didn't go with this because they're going to charge me a crazy amount to tell me that it needs to be replaced and will charge me to replace it, which I did the diagnosis, the replacement, and the brake bleed already.
2 - Toubleshoot what I have installed.
Add On - I can elect them to also investigate this further through their warranty people but it will cost an additional $140 for the labor. I really don't get this but I'm not sure how to fight it.

So I went with option 2 for now and I'll determine how to fight them later.

One last thing I forgot to mention, he said something about a 15 year warranty which since my car is a 2009, it meets one of the qualifications for a recall. I told him that I didn't think recalls have an expiration date and that it's not a warranty. He said it's the same thing and thus their warranty people will need to look into it.

What does that even mean?

I emailed them but they called me back. It took them almost a week to get back to me. I've printed out the links you've given me so when I drop my car off in two days, I'm also going to talk to another service person there.

You are going to request written record going forward "only" & with NO more talking right?

Doesn't that sound evasive?

Yeah, I have an appointment with them and I'll talk to the service manager about this. Good point, I'll get this in writing. I have already submitted a recall complaint to NHTSA. Do you know the best organization to bring this up to once I obtained a written statement? Or should I wait for NHTSA to respond back and work with them instead?

And yes, they are evasive and dismissive even on the phone.

Thanks!

Another update, I pressed but they refuse to put it into writing. They said that the receipt is enough documentation for whatever I'm trying to do with the document. So the two items I request them to write down.

The recall cannot be honored because I did a software fix in 2017.
The recall cannot be honored because I swapped out the module.

The guy said he's been working for 20 years and this is the basic procedure. I told him that the purpose of the documentation isn't to get anyone in trouble but just to detail the reason why I went with this route. But still got nothing. This guy is different from the guy I spoke to on the phone so I'm not sure what's up with this dealership.

So the recall was done in 2017 and software installed and a scan was made and you did not get the codes that VW looks for to replace the module right there, a few years later you get one of the two codes VW looks for, your first scan clearly show one of the two codes that would qualify for them to make the free replacement of module. The dealer tells you not their problem but yours and then gives you the part number for a replacement module. You then take it upon yourself to make repairs.

If that is the case I would be talking with VW customer care about the dealer inaction to correct the situation.

Almost correct. The software update in 2017 did seem to have fixed the issue. About a year later, the traction control and ABS light turned on again and we called the dealership but they said that we have to pay for the fix. Then we drove around with this issue for several years before I decide to fix it myself. That's when I purchased the VCDS a month ago. I got a new module and added the long code. And then from this forum, I was told that what the dealer told me several years ago was incorrect. So I reached out to the dealer and but they're sticking to their word.

Jack provided me the link to NHTSA to file a complaint. Thanks for the advice, I'll also reach out to VW customer care and see if they can do anything.

Thanks!

I see some links in there that I can probably bring my grievances to. The good news is that the shop charged me one hour of labor to reprogram the module so it's the best outcome I could've hoped for given the situation.
