Is the running gear fault the vw equivalent to a check engine light? Or does it involve a specific part of the system.

Would changing from 19"winter to 22" summers affect this somehow?

Running gear came on today and asked to put car in park,so i also turned car off.Then for the first time ever it wouldnt start on first crank..... sounded like a weak battery on 2nd/3rd attempt.finally fired on 4th.no issues on 30km drive home.

Raised and lowered air suspension seems fine......
06 v10

Sound like dead battery? Any ideas to try.
Gotta go visit mech buddy to scan....

Duff batteries in a Touareg can set off warning lights.

You have two batteries in a V10.

The rear battery in the boot/trunk starts the car whilst the under the front seat battery does the ancillaries but it will start the car if the rear battery is duff.

For what little extra it costs, if I replaced one battery then I would always change both if they're a few years old.

Changing the T1, T2, T3 and T4 battery, including both batteries in the V10 - myTreg forums

No tire sensors.....
Running gear fault gone now,no issues with starting so batteries seems less likely the culprit.

However now my back up cam works some of the time..... could the gear selector cause gear fault or is this a additional issue?
