    Ea288 switchable water pump

    On the EA288, is there a way on VCDS to tell if the water pump is switched off?

    Considering the switch mechanism has been removed on some aftermarket pump, is there a meaningful difference in warm up time between the switchable pump and the non switchable one?
    Thanks

    Since you are asking a VCDS question, this does not belong in General VW/Audi Repair. Moving to New User section.

    If possible, please post an Auto-Scan; not all EA288 ECUs are the same.

    Unfortunately, I still don't have any info on wether the non switchable water pump has a meaningful effect on the warming up time vs the original switchable pump. VW is marketing the switchable water pump as an "improvement" but is it really?
