    I have a 09 Treg with a 3.6L. On random occassions, usually only 5 times/year, when I start the car and drive, the voltage meter stops at 11 volts. After driving a short bit, the warnings usually come on making me aware of the low voltage issue as it starts shutting down various accessory...

I have recently noticed 2 strange things with 2004 V8 TREG. 1) When I turn on my interior climate control fan (blower motor) by changing the fan control from "off" to any speed with the temperature set to anything cooler...

    Hello out there, I've recently had difficulty with my Alternator in my Touareg - the battery/alternator notification displayed after a 25km drive and smoke began emitting from my hood. I took it in to get checked at a local auto shop, asked if they had the right tools to diagnose the problem...

    OK, I just joined the forum this morning. We're a long-time VW family, but making our first foray into Touareg. We found a 2005 V8 for a GREAT price, but she needs some help. Just got it home Saturday, but here's what I know so far: 1. When we start the car, we get the "System Fault -...

    I have a T2 V10TDI. My wife stopped at the gas station and it did not start anymore without jump start help (she pumped Diesel, we have 3 Diesel cars and no gasoline one). I charged the battery at home and it started but I noted the needle of the Voltmeter on the dash is jumping between 13V and...

    Does anyone have any information on the alternator options on the new Touaregs? I believe the 2014's have either a 180 amp alt or a 220 amp. What alternators come on what models, and how easy would it be to swap out a 180 for a 220? Thanks in advance for the advice

    I have a battery less than one year old from dealer. I have a new B+ battery/alternator cable less than one year old. Replacing this gave me pretty constant 13.5V. I have a 2004 V8 that was stone dead after three days of sitting at 15F. At Idle the voltage hovers around 12V, but bounces...

    I replaced the alterator/battery B+ cable ($10 from ECS Tuning) on my 2004 V8 with air suspension. Took me about twenty-something hours to complete and I wanted to share some helpful tips for anyone else tackling this job: 1. The nut on the alternator is 13mm. I had to use a craftsman max...

    Hey, I've owned a few VAG cars (VW Golf and Audi A6) back in the day and I had been looking for a bigger car after moving here from London. So being a VAG fan, I bought myself a 2005 Touareg V6 a few weeks ago, the car has 49K miles/80K kms on the clock. I had it inspected before I bought it...

    This is really a branch from a previous thread: http://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f80/2005-touareg-v8-many-fault-codes-system-fault-workshop-46309-2.html Siberian suggested that it might be possible to replace the alternator by removing the front clip, as when changing a timing belt. I talked...

    I got a chance to test the TREG's AWD capabilities a couple of weeks ago when we had a light snow here in the south. Unfortunately, on the way to work, instead of the tire pressures showing in the display, I see a Consumer's Electronics message. Then I noticed the battery symbol illuminated and...
