      Good luck all.

      Should we:

      A) Get this stickied by a Moderator

      B) Post this also to the MKIV forum?? (or would that be rude to double post?)

      Thanks alot Bradleyland for your effort with this.

      Hey, thanks for providing the info. I thought about posting in the MkIV forum, but I'm not sure about the rules regarding double posting.

      This is the reponse I got regarding a sticky:

      Stephen@VWvortex (4:44 PM 3-19-2004): Sorry no. We have specific rules on what we can and can not make sticky. The best that I can offer is to add a link in the FAQ to it.

      I'm going to pursue the sticky further though.

      Thanks for the feedback guys.

      Amazing response...we try to bring an issue to light and this is how we are responded to...why bother with all the hard work? Exactly how much trouble is it for a moderator to make this an important issue? What...are they on a commission basis?

      Is this just happening to 02-03 Vw's???? Becasue my 2001 does it

      Hadn't heard anything about a 12v warm start problem, but I'd imagine it's something unrelated. The software for the 12v is completely different than the 12v.

      My '03 24V just stalled about 2 seconds after I turned it on. (The engine was warm already). Is this what is refered to as a warm stall?

      Yep, call the dealer and they can reflash your ecu.

      Someone just had an EIP turbo kit installed in their 24v and stated that one minor issue he was experiencing was the warm stall issue. EIP says it's a minor tweak to fix it....SO WHAT IS THE FIX?


    20. 10-08-2004 12:49 PM #20
      im wonderin what that is too..

    21. 10-10-2004 11:10 AM #21
      this happens to me occasionally also with the VF software...obviously I cannot get mine reflashed by the dealer, so what should I do??

      I've been experiencing some warm-stall issues again lately. Interesting. By the way, where's Bradleyland? Haven't seen him around for a long time...anyone keeping in touch with him?


    23. 12-22-2004 02:57 PM #23

    24. 12-23-2004 07:59 PM #24

      your revs jump up and down from ~300 to 800, and sometimes your revs get low enough for your car to just stall. what you're talking about is the warm stall issue.

      my warm stalls came back earlier last month after almost a year of not stalling, so it probably is a winter/cold weather thing. time to check out the dealership this friday to get the ECU reflashed.


    27. 01-10-2005 09:05 PM #27
      Damn that is exactly what hapens but the cars was not warm at all but was cold sat all night...so why is it called warm stall ...yes newb question sorry


      should I swing by my local stealership and have them reflash my ECU ???

      and what happens if you get it flashed through an aftermarket company are you just SOL ??

      and at worst what will happen to the car if this continues???

      now that I think about this it happened last year around this time also

      It's not that big a deal. I'd rather put up with that than the bullsht the dealership has to spew out to me to try and explain to them the problem...worst customer service I've ever seen.

      I get stalls immediately after warm starts. The car will idle very rough after startup and usually just stalls out if you do not make it rev around 1500rpm.
      My mods are GIAC chip done middle of last summer, exhaust done shortly after that, and a generic cone filter on the end of my MAF.

      This idle problems started after I got home for the holidays, I've never had any problems with the ole girl. I have only had the problem maybe 2 or 3 times.
      Any insight... I am going to contact my shop and see if there is a GIAC update

      Got the car back. Does that reflash upgrade anything else other than the warm stall issue?

      Probably does..but not sure what. One thing's for sure...it doesn't solve the pinging issue. It may have reduced it alittle because I sense the timing retardation comes on slightly earlier than before.
