Could be turbo ,but the problem is its a common rail fuel injection system and this throws up another problem and that is its VW which from 2005 uses encrypted software so it is difficult to find the fault .change the fuel filter and see what happens if problem persists then its either a bosch diesel specialist or the dealer .sorry for no qiuck fix

My power third row seat don't work, I tested the motors and they work fine when power directly. When I measure the voltage at the connectors I get about +/- 10 volts, from any of the 4 switches. I verified...

Your missing something's G-404 has nothing to do with it !
Seats - Third Row
The third row seat:
  • is three-passenger seat.
  • a 60/40 bench seat.
  • folds down for more cargo area.
  • has optional power fold down seats.
Third Row Power-Fold Seat
CAUTION: To prevent possible damage to the third row seat or the safety belts, make sure that the safety belts are not fastened when moving the seat to the load floor position.
CAUTION: Make sure that no objects such as books, purses or briefcases are on the floor in front of the third row seats or on the seat cushion before lowering the backrest(s).
The third row power-fold seat consists of the following electrical components:
  • right third row seat relay.
  • left third row seat relay.
  • right power-fold seat motor.
  • left power-fold seat motor.
  • right front third row seat switch (if equipped).
  • left front third row seat switch (if equipped).
  • right rear third row seat switch.
  • left rear third row seat switch.
For the third row power-fold seat to operate, a shared ground is supplied by the body security module (BSM) to both of the power-fold seat relays, enabling the seats to then be moved by pressing one of the third row power-fold seat switches. The third row power-fold seat operates only when the vehicle is in PARK and the liftgate glass, liftgate door or any entry door must be open.
The third row power-fold seat motors transfer movement to a drive gear assembly to raise and lower the seat backrest. The power-fold seat motors rotate a short drive cable which is connected to the drive gear assembly.
The relay's are located in Aux. relay box #2

Seat alhambra leaking oil from exhaust and smoking

The most likely cause is a worn bore and the oil is leaking past the rings. It is possible that the oil is entering the combustion chamber through a breather.

The car shift in first and second gear but slip in third is this problem common in probe?

I have a 1989 Probe GT, 2.2L, 5spd, Turbo.

If its one thing I have learned about the Probes is that they are amazing cars until something needs fixing.

--Is the car an automatic or manual trans?
--What engine is in it (if you know)? If not what size is it
(ex. 2.2L, 4cyl / 3.0 V-6)

If its an automatic it could be a number of problems. If its manual the most likely causes are bent or broken shift linkage, or third gear is shot.

Is it only 3rd gear that it pops out of, or anything past second?

Seat Alhamba will not start.

I don't know if re-programming is the answer but any Seat/VW main dealer can do this for you. Trouble is they will change you for a few minutes work!! However, if your key is the sort that i have for my Alhambra (chunky one) then if you follow these instructions then it should work.

How to reprogram the C/L remote control key fob

1. Take the valet key, put it into the ignition and turn the key to the "on" position, just prior to starting the car.

2. Roll down the driver's side window (not required, but a good idea in case there's a problem).

3. Exit the car and close the door.

4. With a second key, physically lock the doors (don't use a remote).

5. Take the first remote to be programmed, press one of the buttons and the lights will flash once. Wait 10 seconds and press the unlock button. The doors should unlock. That first transmitter is now programmed.

6. Lock the door again (physically) with the key, (not the remote).

7. Press one of the buttons twice, the lights will flash twice. Wait 10 seconds and press the unlock button. The doors should unlock. The second transmitter is now programmed.

For a third transmitter press the button 3 times and for a fourth press 4 times.

"Make sure that to test the newly program remotes, the original key is removed from the ignition. Someone might be a bit frustrated trying to test it with it still in 'program' mode."

Hope it works for you!

All the best, RobboArsenal
