J197 error

Meanwhile driving and putting my Touareg V8 in COMFORT mode, I noticed that the compressor signal continued sending air without stopping and stopped working. First I thought that the compressor (fairly new) had broken but when wiring directly from the 12V battery to the compressor ir works just fine. My car lowered the two front ends to lowest (the airstruts are new and original) The compressor doesn't receive power. I checked all pertinent fuses, both right front door as well as under drivers' seat. I checked the rele (changed for a new one but was not broken) I even out a new solenoid block behind the compressor in the hope - but no...
I short wired "Jumped" the relay which receives 12V - which should make the compressor work (right?) but no.

The modules in my opinion are OK as when I jump the rele the compressor should work (even with a broken module) right.

I can only think about wiring with a problem now. But it is hard to trace, from under the car the wires go under the passenger seat.

Anyone - please help.
