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.

Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!

I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please
understand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problem
with the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computer
data/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; we
just diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the
vehicle 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 be
patient 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” in
return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there
is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I
can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you
through 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.

i do need some more information.

  • ​is the drivers side carpet wet or damp?
  • any recent accidents

Ask Your Own VW Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No, I have already checked all the recommendations provided by you before I contacted you. Your recommendation was based on internet search.
VW Mechanic: Wolfgang, VW Master Technician replied 1 year ago

no sir i'm a Master VW technician for 18 yrs for a VW dealer in the United States. My profile shows it!!

Ask Your Own VW Question
VW Mechanic: Wolfgang, VW Master Technician replied 1 year ago

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 .

Then how do you recommended me before? That is the reason I predicted that your recommended is base on internet search. Thanks for your guidance and I close this tech help now.
VW Mechanic: Wolfgang, VW Master Technician replied 1 year ago

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?
