Customer Question

08 touareg, 140K miles. Car sat for 3 days. Got in it, would not start. Tried again and finally got it running. many fault lights came on in dash and could not get the car in gear. Battery reads 12 volts with engine off and 14 with car running. When I rev the car, the motor is sluggish in reaching rpms.

Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang , Master VW tech , here to help!!
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

what lights are on in the dash? what gear is shown on the dash ? more explaination please on the lights will help out tremendously!!
