My P1i appears completly dead after running Update Service. I've tried removing the battery, fully charging the battery etc. When i run Update Service again it just says my phone is up-to-date.
any suggestions?
Update only says "No new software is available for your phone. Your phone already has the latest available software installed."

Then gives the option to Exit only

2000 vw new bettle diesel won't start battery dead when i bought it touched it w/starting fluid cranked cut off


If the engine does not reach 300 rpm while cranking..engine will not start.

It needs good battery power to crank these with spare power to run the electronics.

If with good battery if fires and immediately stops, and the little 'yellow car' is illuminated in the cluster.... the immobiliser is active and you need a shop to fix it.

BTW..Stop with the Easy Start fluid already. You'll break a piston ring or worse...such as....the Glow Plugs will cause a back fire and you will likely strip the timing belt...major repairs...like $3500 and up.

Intermittent battery dead.


This is not an easy repair. The system has a short or draw on the battery that could be located anywhere. I would take to a good local mechanic. The time involved could be very high in excess of 4 hours just to find the problem.
So taking to a shop you can trust can save you a lot of time. I know auto zone does some basic test to check the charging system. The alternator and starting system to see if there is correct out put on the alternator and if there is a draw on the starter for free. I guess that would be a good place to start.

Good luck

Phone completely dead


This is a very odd problem with an even "odder" solution. When this happened to mine, I found a website that told me the following. I swear it works... eventually... probably.
Take the back off and just set it aside for a few minutes.
Now, remove the battery, and then put it back in, and then press the power button. If that does not do it, repeat the process...
... like 20 or 30 or 40 times. Eventually, the unit will make a (scary sounding) "pop" noise, and should turn on as normal.
I have had 3 Tilts. (I tend to be hard on phones.) Of those, two have had the "death" issue. Both were resuccitated this way, and worked just fine afterward.
Best of luck! Hope that helped. :-D
