      Hi Loren:

      Hopefully, it will be one of those strange problems that goes away after a day. In the meantime, try activating and deactivating the child lock control (on the driver door) to see if...

      Hi Johnny: The system that detects burned out...

      Hi Johnny:

      The system that detects burned out or inoperative light bulbs in the car works by measuring the resistance and/or current consumption of the bulb. Because LED lights have different...

      Hello, and welcome to the forum.

      I doubt very much if you will be able to purchase an extended warranty for a 2004 car that covers the components that are most likely to create problems (tire...

      Hi Darren:

      In a word, no.

      Vertical alignment of the high beam is purely mechanical and is not connected in any way to the xenon headlight controllers. You can adjust the vertical alignment of...

      Hi Bruce:

      I'm not dissing the Smart in any way, in fact, I was sufficiently impressed with the car (both the basic design of it and the new electric version) that I did a lot of research last...

      Hi Bruce:

      There are some pictures that illustrate the wiring of the heated steering wheel, etc. at this post, they might be useful to you in trying to figure things out: Retrofitting a 6 button...

      That's easy, just toss it in the back seat or the trunk of your Phaeton. :D

      On a more serious note - beware of the claimed 100 km range. My wife and I investigated the possibility of buying or...

      No, but I trust this dealership absolutely, I have no concerns about that.


      Neither the techs or I had any opinion either way - the sticker called for the fluid inspection at 60,000 km, so, we...

      I believe that the drain plug is in the center bottom of the rear differential, but I am not certain of this. I didn't change the fluid myself, I had my dealer do it for me.

      Probable...

      I agree with Art (Art being the 'voice of experience' in this context). Sometimes the Phaeton does - or fails to do - some strange action, then, the following day, the problem is gone and it never...

      Hi Mike:

      It's very easy to replace the bulb so far as getting it in and out of the headlight assembly is concerned. The big question is how difficult access to the headlight assembly will be in a...

      It is a difficult task. The rear seat must be completely removed (base and seatback). Not for the faint of heart, or for those who don't have at least one full car width available beside the car to...

      I don't think that is likely, because to the best of my knowledge, those lighting circuits (front dome light and front footwell lights) don't have a dedicated fuse. Mind you, I'm not prepared to bet...

      I do not know, because the problem you have described is uncommon.

      Perhaps you could check to confirm that the suspension controller is properly coded, and that the car has been correctly 'adapted' to ensure that it is at the correct ride height.

      It doesn't make...

      Hello:

      It could be one of two things, either a bad controller, or a bad connection on the braided wire cable that runs from the controller to the bulb.

      You could swap controllers from one side...

      No, the instrument cluster controller update addresses a number of communication issues, but not that sunroof one.

      That spurious sunroof fault code (there are actually 2 spurious codes that may...

      Wow, that's one heck of a diagnostic scan.

      It's hard to tell if all the 'intermittent' fault codes are a result of the battery going dead, or if perhaps one of them points to the cause of the...

      Bruce:

      Be careful about substituting LED bulbs in place of other types of bulbs (incandescent, gas discharge, etc.) installed as OEM fitment on the Phaeton. The central electrical controller...
