About this deal

The bit around the gear stick with the leather on and the plastic bit with the gears on that lights up.

It drives really nice and shifts really smoothly, also being full log booked services and DSG has recently being serviced aswell as the timing belt being replaced. This can get into the engine and cause damage but normally it doesn’t although the subsequent extremely important thorough clean out of the system takes a lot of labour time and the turbo is much more expensive to repair. On impact, these golf balls flash brightly for five minutes so you are able to find them easily in low light or when light conditions fade. Assuming the flashing’s not too extreme, the combination of heat and friction all but melts the extra plastic. The switch is used to tell the ECU when the gear selector is in park - if it gets stuck everything will still work but a code will be logged and PRNDS will flash.As for me, the part that says D/S/N/R etc on the MFD didnt say anything and my car wouldnt shift above 1st gear. After that everything has been fine with no glitches or anything, except it ran like shit for 20 minutes after that happened. My first thought at that point would be "tune issue" ie software malfunction or hardware fault (your ECU was opened, yes?

We have a 2001 TDI Bug, 120,000 miles, that seems to have frequent problems with glow plug wiring -- had to replace the wiring harness twice, relay twice, etc.After these were cleared, fault 02413 - Switch for selector Lever Position P Lock (F319) 008 - implausible signal - intermittent came up. Most garages now say EGR valve failures are a known issue (mostly showing up in Mk6 TDIs 3 to 4 years / 40k-60k mileage range). If still flashing and engine cold then either wiring (unusual, not unknown) or temp sensor faulty (black sensor I believe) again you should be able to disconnect and should stop. I plan on replacing all the bulbs next time I am home and give everything 'electrical' a good going over.

So anyway, the dealership have set the wheels in motion regarding the issue, I spoke to the service manager who said VW may cover some (if not all) of the cost of parts or labour as a goodwill gesture because they admit its a common fault. It would make sense to get a fault code read done and if it is an over-boost situation, have the turbo rebuilt before it goes pop.My mechanic said as it hasn't been playing up and it's happened on 2 occasions, just live with it until it gets worse but since leaving there it's got progressively worse and worse showing new symptoms. I jumped it and turned the car on without starting it and the dashboard lights kept flashing rapidly and randomly. Without any code thrown it is tougher to diagnose, as that light can be used for several different faults. The only way to confirm the real issue is to have a diagnostic check done (where the car is connected to a computer and the fault codes logged by the car's computer are read). I also pulled the plug off and bridged the two terminals to see if it stopped the flashing - it didn't.

My car has a Malone stage II tune with no DPF, EGR, or ASV installed so the computer can't be throwing any codes for that.We have tried to get a resolution to a gearbox problem since January, the Vauxhall engineers are apparently. Also, this tends to lock the turbo solid so the engine can't breathe and it leaves you stranded with a collapsing inlet pipe.
