Find and replace the Blower fan relay, not sure where it is on your VW but it's common to be in with the fuse box by the battery. Good luck and hope this helps. When the relay goes bad from the heat of the electrical current, it seizes and does not disengage keeping the connection causing the ran to keep running.

SOURCE: Brake Pad Replacement,2004 VW Touareg,V6 instructions

Same as any other vehicle.

1. Raise and support vehicle
2. Remove tire/wheel
3. Loosen/remove the two caliper bolts
4. Slide caliper off the rotor.
5. Use a C-Clamp to depress the caliper piston
6. Remove old pads from caliper
7. Install new pads on caliper
8. Install caliper/tighten caliper bolts
9. Install tire/wheel
10.Lower vehicle
11 Move to next wheel/repeat

Some people take a turkey baster and remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder prior to depressing the caliper piston because it can over flow. If you choose to do that just add the fluid back when finished so it is at its proper level.

Car will start but will only run for about 20 seconds


I had the same situation on my 2004 Touareg. The problem is the Fuel Pump. The Touareg has two. A primary and secondary. The primary on yours has gone out. The secondary is to assist with starts and secondary throttle driving situations like pulling a load or having a bit of fun in OD or sport mode. The part alone should run you about $350.00. However the tank has to be dropped from the vehicle to replace it. Should take no longer than 2 days max at a dealership. Mine was a one day job.

Hope this helps.

2004 VW Touareg won't start


I had/have the exact same problem with my 2004 Treg. I took it to the dealer in April and they told me it was the fuel pump and replace them. Everything was fine until the other day when it happened again. I took it to a local mechanic who told me it was the crankshaft sensor. If it happens again I'm selling the car for scrap!

VW touareg steering judder low speed left/right turn


Sounds like you have air in your steering system. I would start by looking for any leaks on your steering system like hose to fitting crimps, steering pump, etc. Check your steering fluid level to make sure it is full and also look for bubbles on the dip stick. If everything looks good, start the vehicle and turn the wheels all of the way to the left and then to the right. Do this while the vehicle is in park and repeat at least 5 times. This will work out any air in your steering system. If the problem persists then the power steering pump may need to be replaced.

Touareg 3.2 v6 2004


I replaced my radio/cd in my 2004 touareg with the pioneer Premier AVIC-F90BT. This unit is a double din and fits the opening almost perfect. This unit does everything you can imagine. It took about 10 hours to install, I went very slow and installed all of the features. I got it online for about $640.00 This thing is amazing all steering controls work, it monitors the gages, speed, everthing. This unit will connect with your blue tooth phone. I purchased the HD radio component, and the Ipod connection. Follow the directions and take your time, DO NOT Get rushed. I also purchased a set of 4 keys for the removal of the old radio, they were @ $4.00 for the set.
