I think theses may be of help, they illustrate the first method mentioned.There are two ways to release a car from P for Park by the way.
One involves accessing a switch on, I think, the right hand side of the gear lever by removing part of the console surrounding it.
The other involves crawling under the car and disengaging the selector. I believe this is both quicker and easier!
Hopefully someone might know where the links to both of these get-arounds are?
So you did not need to take away the driverchair ?I left my car for 2 weeks in the airport parking to return to the following problems:
Warning lights - ABS, BRAKE (flashing) EPC, Key symbol on dash, BRAKE FAULT STOP VEHICLE, WORKSHOP.
Systems that were not working - No Speedometer indication, shift-lever stuck in park
Speeking to my local VW Toureg service provider they informed me that there could be corroded wire splice under driver seat(left) due to moister in carpet.
Moister is due to leaking front window seal
After cutting up open the wire loom, wire splice was corroded as seen in pictures below.
I stripped and reconnected the wire splice and put shrink wrap to seal and then retaped wireloom with waterprof tape.
My idea was to try reposition the splices higher up in loom so it does not sit in the lowest point and cause further corrotion
After repair all failure and warning light extingused, however I used Ross-Tech to clear all codes that were if any.
I do hope that this can be a of help for other, ....Why is there not a VW service letter for this
Your log is still showing a lot of communication errors.
