      Hi Mike:

      It will be interesting to see what the results of trying to start the car with an external power supply (doner battery via booster cables) hooked up under the hood will be.

      Hi Martin:

      Primarily, it is because it can supply a full 10 amps of charging current if the battery demands (is able to accept) that charge. The two batteries in the Phaeton are pretty hefty...

      Hi Ian:

      I'm beginning to suspect your battery as well. Be aware that the Phaeton alarm has its own little battery embedded in the alarm siren. The idea behind this is that if someone attempts to...

      Hi Chris:

      It's an error in the software coding of early version instrument cluster software: The logic does not consider that the exterior lights are on (and will remain on for a bit if 'Coming...

      Hi Salah:

      Happy Eid (sorry, I forgot to say that on Monday...). I'm pretty sure that Saeid means the V8... the W8 engine was never fitted to the Phaeton.

      I just had a look at the repair...

      Hello Saeid:

      I believe that there is a step in the procedure for changing transmission fluid on the 6 speed transmission that involves draining the torque converter. I can't recall exactly how...

      Mike:

      Have you tried the following actions (for the purpose of isolating the cause of the problem):

      1) Attempt to start the car using the key in the ignition switch, including invoking the...

      Agreed. One of the things that the instrument cluster software update does is fix that problem, it does away with that message appearing at inappropriate times.

      Whether that is worth all the...

      If the turn signal stalk is left in one of the 'activated' positions (left or right) after the ignition is switched off, the parking lights for the selected side of the car will remain illuminated...

      Unfortunately not, the break point is at version xx18. In other words, the first flash takes the cluster to version xx18, the second flash takes it to version xx21.

      Hi Ashley:

      As Arthur mentioned, low voltage could be the cause of the problem. An easier way of checking voltage would be to simply look at the voltmeter when the engine is running. If the...

      Hi Ian:

      The dealer technician is telling the truth when he says he "sees no faults". The causes of the alarm don't show up as fault codes.

      Instead, the technician needs to go looking for the...

      Hi Josh:

      The actual software flash does not take too long to carry out, perhaps an hour or a bit more. The problem (the cause of all the time spent) is that the car must be hooked up to a VW diagnostic scan...
