My 08 Touareg V6 (with 35,000 KM) just experienced a major system failure, which my VW dealer attributed to a 'bad connection' and excess moisture in the cabin, due to winter weather. This resulted in:

- Differential system lock failure
- Vehicle systems fault
- Keyless access malfunction
- Brake fault (service now!)
- Fault in the generator
- Engine light
- Accelerator non reponsive.

Since it couldn't be towed, I have to give the dealer credit, they sent a couple of mechanics to my house, who bridged the electric problem using one of their devices and got it started.

I was told an exposed connection (seen in many TREGS) was replaced/repared and was assured this was easily fixed and wouldn't happen again. It has me wondering about future problems.

Has anyone else experienced this?

To remote for a flatbet, plus the transmission was locked... it wouldn't go into neutral.

Flatbed wouldn't have worked, but you could have used a tow truck with a dolly. The same thing happened to my truck. It was a apparantly a blown fuse to the kessy module.

Is this something on the level of a recall? i.e. should we take premptive measures to have it fixed?
