Have Volkswagen Questions? Ask an Expert Now.
Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.
The first step is to get the codes scanned with a scan tool that can read abs codes. This could be so many things and a code will narrow down the problem to the root cause.
Please reply to this if you need more help and we can continue this conversation at no extra charge. This does not have to be my only answer. If you are satisfied with my service, please rate at the top of the screen. Rating does not close out your question. Remember, sometimes it is difficult to completely diagnose your vehicle without being there, but I will try to give you the best answer I can. Hoping to be giving you 5 star service.
I am going to open this back up to other experts I do not have access in my service manual for this vehicle, someone will be here to help shortly.
Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!
I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Note there may be an issue where the complexity of the issue will require a Premium Service. This service will be an addition to the normal question cost. Usually it does not come down to this but keep in mind!! I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.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.

is this a left hand drive or right hand drive vehicle please?
so the battery is on the drivers side or the passenger side?
i'm from the states so i have to make sure where the battery is to instruct you on where to look at wiring splices
ok the wiring on the passenger side fllor near front of the front door opening , take the wrap off and inspect the splices there . the splices has corroded or came apart and has to be redone!!! there are 2 to 3 sets of splices on that side . please let me know with pics !!!
I try to be online 365 days a year.
I only earn a paycheck when a customer rates me Ok, Good, Excellent.

so that means that my recommendation and utilized our service to better you ?
no sir i'm a Master VW technician for 18 yrs for a VW dealer in the United States. My profile shows it!!
not playing around but no evidence that is your car? In the States we have left hand drive vehicles so that is why i have asked of the battery location because there is electrics at the same area with a relay which the splices controls that relay and locks up the shifter , no trans communication , abs and brake lights on and flashing . the dash lights lit up like a christmas tree.
alot of people does not respond and check back in to say hey i found it or not so that is why that "anything else" message was sent .
i try to follow up everyday !!
what dealer code?
i need the pic of the options sticker where the spare tire is located.
because in my dealer i have done alot of that repairs in the field!! went for Touareg training when they first came out !! especially where there is alot of moisture in the carpet which then corrodes the splices!!
390 is not a dealer code !!! the dealer codes are 6 digits and also your importer code?
so what scan tool you use vag com ? vcds? vas pc ?
