      Thanks.

      I have vag-com so I can set them up myself. I also have 2 brand new ones from the MKVI, I think the frequency is different and outside the range of the MKIV.

      I just went out and checked, 12.5 volts at the battery, started the car, checked and it was down to 12.2 volts at idle, at 3KRPM it dropped again to 12.17.

      Checked the fuse, it's fine.
