      Ok update. This is starting to become a proper nightmare now. I had to get VW to order the Kessy and it arrived on Friday. They have mounted the unit and... nothing. The car won't recognise it and...

      Hi guys,

      I would not want people to fall out over this issue but I would say that FDTINC has touched on something quite right, Power. You did diagnose the problem but in such a way, as he states,...

      Many thanks Powerdubs,

      I am going to get them to replace the KESSY and place it in a bag as you have said and then use another workshop that I know that are cheaper to do the cleaning work and...

      Hi Power,

      You have been right in this so far and I value your input. My fear is that the VW dealership want to take my car apart almost completely. They have said they will have to take out all...

      Willem,

      Many thaks for that. I have spoken to them, they said the kessy module looks like it has leaked some sort of green fluid or something. Sulphates they said. They really were not very...

      Power,

      You were totally correct, they have taken out the KESSY unit and the whole area is soaked and the unit itself saturated with water!

      However, they are trying to tell me that there is...

      Ok so sounds like a dead end there. I have seen a forum post on another site about getting the KESSY module repaired

      I just hate being ripped off by VW, I have a MB GL320 and Mercedes never...

      Thanks for your help, Stu. My instinct is that this is probably ok but the problem I have is that I just can't get a clear message back from the vendor - I just don't speak German. does anyone speak...

      Stu? Can you tell me if that unit on ebay.de would be suitable? Does ANYONE know what the 01 means before the D? I know that the FX means a reconditioned part so that's fine.

      Someone let me know...
    10. I saw your issues. My VW dealership are not that...

      I saw your issues. My VW dealership are not that forthcoming on whether it will work or not. They say that they can reprogram the unit and are fine with me buying one from someone else. The issue is...

      Hi Power,

      Yes now it is in a dealership. They can reprogram etc. In fact they requested both keys. I have now located this item on ebay in Germany:

      Hello again,

      Ok it has now got to a VW garage and they have said the problem is in the immobiliser control module, ref. is 3D0 909 137 FX 01D.

      They have quoted me 350.62 Euros for this. Any...

      Hi Stu,

      Would the Kessy unit work on my car. I was reading this thread here:

      http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?4433216

      And it seems it might not work properly. Any ideas?

      Dear me I didn't fancy a bill like that just now. Josh, when you say this amount is this because we will most likely have to replace the Kessy unit.

      EnglishPhaeton, didn't see your name sorry,...

      Hi Josh,

      I will try this. The car is a workshop now and I won't be able to get back to it till Monday morning.

      Any other thoughts while we wait?

      Thanks,

      Iain

      Hi Willem and others,

      The problem is we can't get the car to start! The car recognises the key in the centre screen but doesn't seem to in the ignition or in the instrument cluster. When you get...

      Hi there Josh, Eric and Auzi,

      Funny question one of you asked, yes it has rained recently. All day as well.

      I did try the "hard start" but only when the car was already dead. I have a few...

      Hi guys,

      While on a trip to Portugal my car came up with dreaded "System Fault - Workshop" which is usually a sign of the battery being low. However the person who was in my car, and who we won't...
    20. An ongoing saga with VW in Malaga and some TPMS madness - can someone advise?

      HI everyone. I have read through this thread with interest and wanted to share my recent and ongoing experience with my 2004 V10 and a dealership in Malaga Spain.
