      I had a 1988 Scirocco 16v for 12-1/2 years. IIRC, that crack was considered 'no big problem' unless it cracked the seat insert.

      2015 Tiguan S: 12V outlets?

      Is there, in VCDS, a way to keep the 12V outlets('lighter sockets') hot with the engine turned off?

      Have you checked the ground to the ignition coil pack? This has been known to cause some oddball problems.

      There was a TSB on this for the AZG and maybe the AVH engines.

      The solution for me was...

      Adaptation is where I see the above error.

      Channel 04 access generates that error.

      I can access controller 09, but the auto lock (channel 04) reports:

      This is the S trim level. Can you point me toward the Convenience menu? My radio has no CAR button, and I'm not finding anything but radio settings in the SETUP menus.

      Thanks,

      Disable auto locking

      I've just acquired a 2015 Tiguan TSI.

      I'd like to turn the auto locking 'feature' off. By this I mean the doors locking at 7MPH.

      I'm a long-time VAG-COM user, and have performed this operation...

      My guess:

      Poor oil flow due to clogged passages or filter is causing restricted flow to valve lifters. Collapsed lifters don't open valves sufficiently, and the excess cam/lifter clearance causes...

      Try running a redundant ground wire from an alternator case bolt to the battery NEGATIVE.

      This really sounds like a poor ground-- especially the 'charging only at high rev' scenario.
