Touareg lost all displays in the car, gauges frozen...
Started the Treg up as normal, reversed out of the driveway, shifted into drive with no problems. Took a turn and felt what was like a bump in the road and we lost all gauges, displays, radio, air conditioning, and the gauges are frozen in place. Stopped the car about 20 yards down the street and put in park. Turned the car off and then back on, no display but it would start but the brake wouldn’t release the gear selector. Started the car, used the shifter release and got it into gear and back to the garage. Shifting into gear was not as smooth as it would be in normal operating condition. I have no internal electronics like windows, seat controls, or door locks but overhead lights and headlights still come on.
At a lost with what to do to figure this out. I don’t have a scan tool. I can’t access the battery without moving the seat so not sure how to “unplug” the battery to reset anything. Any concerns if I were to drive the car a few miles to the dealer in this condition?
