Volkswagen Has Recalled the 2004 Touareg
(SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the following information.


Volkswagen of America, Inc.

Models: Volkswagen Touareg Year: 2004

Number Potentially Involved: 623

Dates of Manufacture: April – July 2003

Defect: On certain sport utility vehicles, the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) wiring harness may have been improperly routed during assembly. An improperly routed TPMS wiring harness may contact the parking brake cable. If this happens, the TPMS wiring circuit could be interrupted, resulting in an inoperative TPMS and causing a short-to-ground condition that could potentially result in a fire.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the TPMS wiring harness routing and, if necessary, correct the wiring harness routing. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during August 2003. Owners may contact VW at 1-800-893-5298.

Yep - This is an old (last summer) recall.

Nothing to be worried about as, from what I've been told, they've been fixed. If they had a recalled vehicle on the lot, the dealer already fixed it - and most owners brought their's in to be repaired.

I keep on getting a Tire Monitoring System Fault, even after the dealership reset the ECU. Would this have anything to do with this recall?
