I agree re coil packs. VW/Audi coil pack are notorious for failing. The aforementioned vcds would help you identify if this is e case within a minute or so.Here is my two cents: When a dealer takes in a used car they typically detail it. Professional detail always starts with a heated power spray down of jams and tight places. Professionals always spray out the engine bay as well...mostly for dust knock down followed by dressing...but know what they are doing. Crappy dealers don't, they get water in the engine where it shouldn't go and a few days after buying a car you can have a bad coil pack or sensor. I did professional detail through high school, we would get an oops maybe 1 out of 20 cars. BUT this was years ago before coil packs and we just blew out the distributors with dried air until things got to working. Now days a good dealer should simply avoid cleaning the engine...too much electronics under there.
My point is just because the coil packs were replaced doesn't mean they shouldn't be looked at.
Why wouldn't the electric motor work? Who knows this one, but perhaps when there is a misfire it won't engage? Just speculation.
Oh yes! :twisted:There is no special method to launch with both ICE and electric motors. But if the battery is charged enough and you pin the accelerator you get the 'Go Baby Go' mode. Watch the 'Car' screen on the Nav and you will see both blue and orange mix together on the wheels.
