Question about Cars & Trucks
When I start my Touareg 2003 (4.0 petrol) the gear box is blocked and I have no possibility to drive my car. At the same time Red brake indicator (!) together with the ABS indicator appears. But when I reload the code of the security alarm (click on unlock button on remote controller) the Fault Running Gear Workshop message is displayed and it is possible to drive the car again. I would be very appreciated if somebody could help me to understand the problem because the only error which has been detected wile scanning the Touareg was security alarm error. Technically car has no problems, specialist has checked everything an was not able to find the reason of this problem. Thank you.

hi i am dieter
here is something to try
keep some cold water with you and the next time it happens very quickly get out and pour the water on the crankshaft sensor then restart. If it starts right away without the usual two minutes than you will need to change this sensor. The sensor is easy to find you will see a wiring harness around the crankshaft pulley(the large one at the bottom the basically runs all your accessories like the p/s pump, alternator, water pump). Try to famaliarize yourself as to the location of the sensor first so that you can try to restart it within about 30 seconds.

SOURCE: gear engages a little late
Your transmission is slipping. Check the fluid to make sure it is full. If not bring it up to full and see if the problem persists. If it does you probably have a major problem~make a note of whether it does it worse when cold or at running temperature, if you experience any shudder when changing gears climbing hills etc to determine possible faults.

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THE ABS FIXED THE LIGTH AUTOMATYCALY TURNS OFF BUT IF THE ABS IS STILL UNABLE THE ABS LIGTH AND THE TRAC OFF LIGTH WILL REMAIN ON

I would return to the repair shop and get them to plug into the OBD and check for fault codes that correspond to suspension, chances are this could be related to previous repair. But may just need the fault codes deleting
