Always remove key after stopping engine as electronics won't shut down until key is removed. You either have a pin hole that will accept a paper clip of pin or there is a button to push to release key. Once key is out reinsert key and turn it counter clockwise 3 times then try to start engine. If nothing happens your battery is completely drained and will have to be charged or replaced. You need a fully charged battery too operate the Touareg. Don't be surprised if some fault codes appear after your up and running again

Never heard of the counterclockwise action except to activate the alternative start on the V10 with 2 batteries when the trunk (starting) battery is dead.

What do the three turns do?

I have heard about this, i think its a forced load intervention on the battery basically saving the system picking up on the condition when trying to start normally, wasting valuable cranking power by running consumables. I thought you turned and held the key anti clockwise for "x2" amount of seconds but it has never worked for me. I will have to try this today to see if i can move mine off the road.

I remember reading it in a post and thought I'd throw it out in the hopes that it helped.
