Question about Volkswagen Touareg

1 Answer

I have a Touareg VW, 2004, V8 with active suspension, 4 wheel drive and tyre pressure monitors. These monitors always give me problems as they dont detect the pressure and the defect appears on the dash computer. Two of the 4 sensor modules need replacement and they are expensive. Is there a cheaper solution o is better to disconnect the whole monitoring system altogether? Thx

    thanks. I'll try your suggestion to deflate the tire and see what happens.

Your not going to be able to disconnect the monitor system with out causing other problems. I've had this same problem and the only solution was to replace the defective pressure sensor monitors. Have you tried deflating the tire down to a very low pressure on the wheels giving you the problem, and refilling them??? Just a thought before you spend the money for the sensors.

Own a 2004 VW Phaeton V8. Recently bought it with 56,000 miles. Tire pressure warning indicator is on. Just filled tires and pressure is at correct level. Seems like a common problem. Is there anything...


Hi. It is very difficult to remove the Tire pressure warning system.
To reset the light, the vehicle must be driven for a period of about 20 minutes.After the pressures have been check(don't forget the spare, unless you have set the monitoring of it off). If this does not reset it, then there may be a fault in the system. This needs to be rectified by a VW franchise. The sensors are often damaged when the tyres are replaced.
Hope this helps.

I have a 2007 A6 with 4 yokohama tires, recvntly my dashboard computer is showing a low tire pressure warning, so I checked all tires and inflated them to the reccomended pressure on the door 35 front 39...


It's a Tyres Monitoring Pressure (TMP) system ECU (Electronic Control Unit) temporary faulty. Run for few miles above 30 mph, and all the temporary faults of Tyres Monitoring Pressure (TMP) system ECU will dissappear themselves. Also you can access & erase the TMP system ECU for all Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) memored, if you will connect a VW / Audi diagnostic equipment to the data link connector of the car.

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.

Engine stalls while driving. Fuel deprivation?


I am having the exact same problem with my VW Touareg @60,000 miles. Two weeks ago and again today it sputters and stalls shortly after starting. I brought it into the shop and they could not reproduce the problem and said it was fine. Also, they had no ideas when I describes the problem. Anyone know what it going on? I am out of warranty.

Im stationed overseas and my grandmother has a 2003 santa fe 6cyl. she is getting bad tire wear. could this just be a front end alignment and how much should it cost to repair


Brad

1. It's hard to say without looking at the vehicle (and test driving it) but more than likely the front end is badly out of alignment. ( If the car has been in a significant front end accident and badly repaired then this could also be a source of the problem as the alignment may not be capable of being properly set).

2. The first thing to do is take the car to a specialist suspension and steering shop and have the wheel alignment checked and adjusted to factory specs. Normally this is not expensive for a straight forward alignment but price depends on the shop. A good suspension shop will also identify if there are any wear problems with the steering or suspension that need attention

3. Older drivers sometimes frequently hit kerbs when parking their cars. This will throw out the front wheel alignment every time (and damage tyres) so it must always be avoided. Scrubbed.scuffed tyre side walls are an indication of this as well as scratched wheel rim edges.

4. Some drivers never check tyre pressures. Low tyre pressures will cause much greater tyre wear as there is more friction. (It will also make steering heavier, place undue stress on the steering components, cause the car to handle badly and result in much higher fuel consumption).
The lady needs to ensure her car has at least 32 lbs pressure in both front tyres and at least 30lbs in the rear (which carries less weight). The pressures must be set with COLD tyres. Manufacturer optimum spec tyre pressures are usually set for comfort. These can be safely exceeded by a few pounds. It is far safer (and more economical) to run slightly higher pressures than a setting that is too low. (A good tyre will run all day with 38-40 pounds pressure and 36-38 is quite safe).

5. Worn out shock absorbers will also contribute to abnormal tyre wear. 70000 miles of average driving will see out a set of shocks. (Personally I would not leave them that long as the factory shocks are generally of average quality on this type of car)..

That's the best I can do Brad without seeing the car so I hope this helps some. Hopefully a good wheel alignment will fix the problem but make sure the tyre pressures are kept up as well. If the shocks are worn out they will also need to be replaced if the car is to be roadworthy.

Change of wheels and tyres on VW Golf


no i  can assure you the vw golf is very well made and will take those wheels on the car without any problems at all, it will also add a little more traction as the tyres will be wider so the car will handle the road a little better, i presume that vw are trying to rip you off as you seem a little vunerable but i think that it would not be a problem at all, hope that helps

Way too low. I have the same vehicle. Pressure should be at least 55psi all round, depending on load.
