Another very good expert on here told me this is caused most of the time by a blown or missing fuse in the under dash fuse box .I would check those fuses also .Let me know.

Be more specific plz.

I don't see any module.
VW Mechanic: Cardoctor74, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Ok forget about the module for a minute I need you to check in the under hood fuse box and see if there is a missing or blown fuse this will cause this issue.
