Question about Volkswagen Touareg 2

Dealer replaced Battery in VW Toureg-now Homelink won't work.

My battery died in my VW Toureg, so I took it to the dealership to have it replaced (fyi..I have never had anyone work on my car except the dealership). When I got home, my homelink system suddenly did not work. I called the dealership, and they sent out a technician. Unfortunately, he was unable to fix the problem. After more research on their end, they are now telling us it is not working because of the battery dying, so it is not their responsibility. They are quoting us $810 to fix it. We obviously feel they are responsible, because it worked fine until they had it in their possession. Have you ever heard of this happening before, or do you have any idea if it can be fixed in lieu of replacing it? Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

They screwed up something !! Get in touch with the Volkswagen Regional Rep in your area.

VW technicians hate working on VW's to start with.

I have a VW too, I feel your pain. I was charged $600.00 for 6 spark plug wires, so I found an independent for future repairs.

My soft top roof will not close, just changed the battery and opened thew roof now it will not close

You need to have the dealer reset the programming. NEVER change a battery in this model car without a backup power source connected to avoid these types of problems in VW's

Driving down the road, car stops working, almost like running out of fuel. "Battery" light comes on. Toe it back home, hook up jumper cables, engine will turn over but won't fire...just turns. Took it to a...

sounds like a fuel problem to me , could also be bad fuel ? have you check the following: fuel cap on properly, fuel filter changed , Check fuse relay. also would be a good idea to change the battery if it is still the original one.
