Where is the the control module and also the fuse or relay thank you
VW Mechanic: vwtech0405, VW Technician replied 11 months ago
It's located in the right rear luggage compartment behind the panels but the module is not the issue you will need a capable scan tool to see which trouble codes you have in the module so you see which one of the sensors has failed start by checking that with a capable scan tool . I hope this helps please don't forget to provide feedback rating for the help provided thank you

Which the fuse so i can disarm it until i can get capable scan tool to find what side it is thabks
VW Mechanic: vwtech0405, VW Technician replied 11 months ago

There is no fuse just for that if you remove the comfort module #14 out it will cause more issues , you can try to unplug the blinking convertible light to eliminate the noise .

I hope this helps please dont forget to provide positive feedback for the help provided thank you
