So I read a great audi thread & I have a direction to move. Basicly if there is no power going to Solenoid Valve Block it will not release air. So the block could be the problem. So I am going to switch the air lines from the front & back at block & see if it works correctly on the rear shocks.
I realize people have many problems with leaks on touaregs, but I am having the opposite problem. Rear will not lower. Well two problems now, but I will fix the original problem first. Second problem was caused by my vag-com using. Live & learn.
Thank you iandieter for the reply. I realize I should have taken it to dealer to fix, but I do not learn anything by doing so. I realize by working on boats electronics that you use vag-com type products only to point you closer to problem, but don't rely on it like it tells the truth. Dealers are no smarter than you or me. The only difference is they get paid for every hour they guess at problems. They get paid for every part they guess will fix problem. They do have better toys, but I don't need them to figure this out. If I made more money, then I would go & tell them to fix it, but I have more time than money right now. Besides, I am getting to know my touareg better. It will help me if something happens on the side of the road some night.
I should say, if anyone knows for sure this info about the block is wrong then please speak up. I do not write on this site for myself only. I write on this site so if there is a person out there with the same problem, they can figure this out much quicker than I did because of my words.
I do find it hard to believe no one knows how these air suspenion parts work together. After this experience, I have gained a lot of info & pfd on subject. That turned off relay still bothers me though. I will figure it out. Ross-tech website needs work I must say that. Vague on problems that happen while using there product. For the $350 I spent, I expect better.
