Hey everyone, 2016 TDI Lux here and this thread inspired me! I took on this project and completed the install this weekend.
I took my time and was VERY careful.
However, I'm looking for your help
. After plugging back in the components I am seeing two issues
1. I can no longer see what gear i'm in on the center console, it's fine up on the gauges display... However, down on the gear selector it's like there's no power to the "backlight" for the gear selector "gates".
2. When I startup the car, it says "ARS Traction Control Disabled, Front assist not available" then clears itself and enables both features after about 10seconds. The Traction Control button does not illuminate and is not turning on and off Traction Control anymore. Also, during my drive to work this morning this popped on the displayed error'n then clearing itself again after a few seconds elapsed.
Again, I am very meticulous. I took my time and was very careful with all components not to overstretch wire looms or force connectors. All modules were carefully removed and stored while the panel was wrapped to prevent heat gun exposure etc. After re-installing, my first thought was a loose connector, but I confirmed all are tight and properly installed. Part of me wonders if there's a fuse that went out... but two? Something is haywire here...
I plan to run VCDS self-diagnostics today but I have to say I'm pretty disappointed that after carefully unplugging and re-plugging the connectors after completing the wrap, I have 2 issues. I wasn't worried at first as in my opinion and experience with other vehicles, are quickly resolved with a found loose connector... that was NOT the case, sadly.. Do these connectors have to be plugged in, in a certain order that only German's know?
Anyone else run into issues with their late model Touareg during the wrap/re-install process?
:fingerscrossed you all have some ideas, thanks in advance for any ideas you would like to share.
