Hi Pearl, here is my problem: sorry i will copy paste what i posted on a forum if that's okay, you must have all the informations needed
Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your VW?
It is a MK5 GTI 2007 DSG FSI engine
Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?
DSG and 90K km so about 50K miles it is european specs
Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your GTI yourself? What have you tried so far?
Hi everybody,First of all, let me present myself as I am new on this forum: my name is ***** ***** from Saint Martin in the Caribbean, and I own a 2007 Golf mk5 GTI DSG, european spec.Before I even post here, I have made plenty of research on the forum and on the web and made some tests, so thanks for reading me as I think I need to tell you everything in detail so you can advise me:Also, so you know, with the hurricane Irma which destroyed 95% of the island, i cannot bring the car to any garage to get it checked.I had recently a problem with my shifter, I couldn't move it out of park, and as soon as i was starting the engine, then I couldn't remove the key out of the ignition, could only do it if i disconnect the battery.I decided to remove the shifter, and to be able to do that, i removed the driver seat, some plastics around etc...Please note that the car has always started perfectly, the battery is good, but after having removed these part in order to remove the shifter, the car doesn't start anymore. I put the shifter back and all parts back and still same problem! When i turn the key, there is not lights in the dashboard, nothing, like if there is not current. But windows work, radio work etc... the boot doesnt open.Here is what i have checked so far:Battery okAll fuses ok, but in the fuse box that is located in the engine bay, I can't find no tension on fuses 6, 9, 10, 11, 12 (even with the key on). I have also replaced the relays in this fuse box, the 2 relays (100) but not the 167 that is located in between this fuses --> do you think that relay provides the alimentation to theses fuses?Also, i have changed the fuse B1 (460) under the dashboard, but it didn't change anything --> So i have removed the Relay B1 and checked if there is tension coming to it and there is none! If i remove the relay B9 and i check, there is tension.So i believe there must be a problem with wiring, or something else linked to the relay in position B1 but I am lost, I don't know what should i check next. What i would like to know is should there be some tension continuously arriving to relay B1? or only when key is on? If I read well the WD it seems that the j519 is supplying power to the relay j681 in position B1 problem would come from there?
Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
I don't think so thanks
