Hi there,

Touareg 2010 3.0 Bluemotion

I had the front brake pads replaced today and have a hand brake error afterwards

The workshop ran a diagnostic and found the following errors:
B201000 - No basic setting
U101400 - Control module incorrectly coded
B2010F0 - No basic setting - Deviation is outside the expected range

The hand brake is deactivated.

Please can someone tell me what to do, the workshop claims ignorance and deniability.

Thanks in advance

Am I right in thinking you own a Generation 2 car, known on here as the T3, with an electrically operated parking [not "hand"!] brake?

The parking brake operates only on/within the rear discs.

If the garage worked solely on the front discs [and by the way most Touaregs need new discs as well as new pads since there is only 1mm of wear of each side of each disc before the disc is unserviceable so did the garage measure the disc thickness to check?] then it's a coincidence.

However, if they messed about with the rear discs for any reason then clearly they didn't know what they were doing [as others have found out the hard way] and the car needs a trip to the VW dealer to get it fixed, and sometimnes that is not a cheap job.

If the electric handbrake has been actuated before rear brakes has been changed then, indeed the module has to be updated. From 2010 onwards, you can change the rear discs and pads with out introducing any issues, just don’t put the handbrake on! Previously, the VAGCOM would have to be used to release the actuators so service can be done.
If the electric handbrake has been actuated, then the shop would have had a real problem trying to get the brakes released. Only way is to remove the actuators which senses its position and current draw, etc... When it is re-installed, the actuators would expect to “X” and it is sees “Y”, it will show an error.
You don’t say if the rear brakes were serviced.
Agree with Noobytoogy, sounds like the shop doesn’t understand this type of electric handbrakes, which these days, all new cars have them.
The shop has to pay!!!???
