Got a message "Steering Fault - Workshop" along with the audible warning buzzer the other day while shutting down my Phaeton. Restarted the car and the warning was gone. Got the same message last night at vehicle shutdown. When returning to the car after dinner I attempted to start the car and go home prior to what looked like an approaching storm. Everything was fine except I could not start the car. I also could not open any window or close the sunroof (the roof was in the vent position not wide open fortunately). Everything in the car works except I can't open or close any windows, take the car out of park and of course start it. The steering wheel is not locked and is tunable. Got a ride home and got my voltage gauge and both batteries were OK. I did not load test them. How is a Phaeton that is stuck in park get put onto a flatbed carrier for it's visit to the "Workshop" and is there a known work around to get the car started and out of park so I can drive it to my dealer. I taped a plastic bag over the open part of the sun roof in case another storm decides to pay a visit.
