    Ha! I think there's an Adaptation channel to disable alarm monitoring of trailer. I disabled monitoring of the DLC for similar reasons (gladly no campers nearby).

    I may look into that. That said, it seems like a good and valuable feature. I want to know if someone tries to abscond with my trailer, or Hitch-Hauler. I just would like to have known that feature was there before yesterday.

    For DLC monitoring... hmm! I wonder what the triggering conditions are. I hit the Atlas with all sorts of 19 comms plus a full Auto-Scan attempt with the alarm on, with no response. Perhaps a variance in current draw? I wonder what HEX-NET going through sleep/wakeup would trigger.

    Yeah, I would rather people be annoyed at getting woken up, than me getting annoyed by having a stolen trailer.

    If you want to play this may be it:

    IDE04928-ENG115812 Anti-theft device - DWA Camper Modus

    I'm not sure what the threshold is for OBD but misery loves company.

    Yet another invitation to stop by my friendly local dealer: https://www.consumerreports.org/car-...iiger-airbags/

    Volkswagen is recalling 9,685 of its 2018 Atlas SUVs because the airbags may deploy unintentionally, which could injure the vehicle’s occupants.

    The issue stems from an improperly installed air-conditioning drain tube that can leak excess condensation from the SUV’s air- conditioning system onto an airbag control module (essentially the computer chip that determines when airbags should be deployed) instead of draining outside the vehicle. If the airbag control module gets wet, the vehicle’s airbags could deploy unintentionally, Volkswagen says.

    Because the twisted tube may also leak water into the passenger compartment, drivers of affected vehicles may notice a foul odor or a wet carpet inside the vehicle. Warning lights, including those for the airbags, may be illuminated on the dashboard, Volkswagen said.
    My Atlas isn't even subject to this recall, because the same issue was already looked at and cleared when it was a lower-urgency service action. It got bumped up to a recall when they got a report of uncommanded airbag deployment. But, last week, my wife tells me the airbag idiot light came on a few times...

    And upon consulting Erwin today, I discover I'm subject to four more service actions or recalls, one with two criteria. I think that brings me up to 17 now.



    I already knew they wanted to give me a new emissions compliance sticker, and tell me not to put big heavy child seats in the middle of the second row, but the other two are news to me. On one hand, I actually like the continuous-improvement cycle happening here, that they're proactively reaching out to bring all vehicles they've made up-to-date with various lessons learned. On the other hand, this is starting to get a little out of control...

    Off to schedule an appointment and a loaner!

    It's really quite surprising how much trouble VW has with water in the wrong places.

    Odd really, considering how well an aircooled Beetle floated!

    Wow that's a lot of torque. And now for 2019 the 2.0T is available with AWD and non-poverty trims?

    Can we put an Atlas 2.0T in my new Tiguan, please?

    Indeed. But a lot of the uplift comes from the 93 tune, since the factory calibration is for 87. They did make an 87 tune, but the gains are considerably less.

    Sadly no, for 2019 it's pushed even further down into absolute poverty trim, FWD S only. May as well not even exist.

    I suppose the marketing geniuses at VW believe that there isn't much of a market in the US for a 4-banger engine in a vehicle in that class.
