Volkswagen Problems

Shifting issues due to internal problems in high mileage automatic transmissions can be difficult to resolve without transmission replacement.

One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

One or both head lights may not work due to premature head light bulb burnout and/or bulb harness failure. Care should be taken to inspect the head light harness connector for damage when replacing bulbs. Damaged connectors should be replaced.

My abs and engine light are on, and speedo, cruise control, trip control aren' t working. Can i disable abs module without losing speedo, cruise control, trip control ? I don't mind losing abs.

I've dismantled and cleaned it, but the light is still on. How do I now reset the EW code?. I've also read that you can't clean the EGR on this model of Golf, but instead have to replace it with a new valve. Is that Correct?

Volkswagen Recalls

If a rear suspension trailing arm becomes bent, its durability may be compromised and it could break unexpectedly. If this were to occur vehicle control would be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. When parts become available, dealers will install a sheet metal inlay on each of the rear axle trailing arms to prevent sudden loss of vehicle control should a rear trailing arm suddenly break.

Under certain conditions, when using winterized fuel the engine may stall without warning due to bubbles forming in the fuel system, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the vehicle's software to increase the fuel pump pressure in order to correct this concern.

Certain 2014 Volkswagen models equipped with the 1.8T engine and an automatic transmission are being recalled. A fluid leak can develop from a defective o-ring on the oil cooler where it mounts to the transmission. In some instances, the leaking transmission fluid could contact a hot surface resulting in a fire. Dealers will replace the oil cooler seals at the transmission to correct this concern.

At 62K miles the engine light came on. I took it to my local mechanic who diagnosed the problem as carbon buildup on the valves which they said that the intake manifold would have to be removed and the valves cleaned manually which they were not equipped to do. I took the cc to the VW dealer, they said the same thing and quoted me $300 to do an induction service (BG) or remove the intake mani...
