2012 tourareg various issues, acc not available, start stop not active etc

Hi, I have just joined the forum. My dad has purchased a 2012 tourareg 3.0tdi.
The car has the following issues,
1. Acc not active
2. Start stop system inactive
3. Rear power tailgate does not operate. I press button on door for 3 secs and get 3 beeps
4. Has 180 degree cameras, I press button and it just beeps, blind spot sensor works as does lane assist.

We got RACV in to check battery and he advised battery is on its way out. However car starts ok at good cranking speed. Has anyone come across this, can it be caused by weak battery. Taking car in tomorrow to read codes.
Regards

Touaregs do not like weak batteries.

Change it.

Than get the car scanned with VCDS .

Note the faults.

Clear them.

Drive the car.

Scan it with VCDS

See which faults have returned, if any, and post them on here.

It is possible to change the stop/fart setting with VCDS so it is possible that some one may have programmed to get rid of it as lots of people hate it!

However if you think about it, the battery has to be the most likely culprit!

Well, the vw specialist traced a fault to the towbar control module. He opened it up a.d looks like their was a little fire on one of the circuits. Now i am hoping this is causing the issues i am having but he says i have to repace it before he can delve further into it. Vw charging $1000 for the module. He cant source a second hand one a d he wont warranty if i buy one from ecstuning for $500 delivered aud. If anyone has a good one for sale i am interested.
