First one is 17978 -ECM blocked By Immobiliser. there is something wrong with car key or imobiliser. try with second key. If problem presist, go to diler on diagnostic tool. all the rest are for glow plugs. change them.
Hopefully you are using the same ignition key you had before to start the car. This flip module mhas a chip that tells the system you have the proper key. If for some unknown reason the system lost this program it is probably a dealer only problem. The chip is inside the fob right near the key itself.
The switch in the trunk which tells the alarm that the trunk lid is closed is either defective or not correctly adjusted. If this info is of no help to you, than you don't know enough to fix it. Take it to a reputable VW shop for repair. Charlie
Ya still battling it . we flushed the tranny and it was fine for awhile but its just as bad if not worse. Volkswagon dealer gave me a huge run around and no answers. I thought i was getting stroked at $3500 for a new tranny but sounds like they realy want to nail you with $4500. No the catalytic replacement didnt fix the problem just a way to get more money out of me.
I didnt let the dealer replace the tranny and we drove it . it drives fine once its warmed up but first thing in the morning it slips. and it seems to be getting worse. I swung by a local shop not a dealer and he told me they have sensors . and may be a simple fix. but if not ya have to replace the tranny for its a sealed unit and they just cant be worked on. I regret buying it. let me know if ya find a solution. my e mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
