    4WD not working

    I'm afraid this spare part may be the solution, but before buying it, may be convenient to simply measure resistance between ABS connector's yellow wire and ground with an ohmmeter. If that value is zero, another is the problem and you have to try to read codes with $54 still in hand Regards

    Another 04 question

    TC is an extrapolation of ABS work. When a wheel is turning at higher speed, ABS modulator pumps brake fluid to its brake caliper and brakes this wheel. During this braking, TC light is on. In this way is intended to help an open diff, not to loss turn from axle opposite wheel. With relative...

    DRL 2004 D2

    Hi, in order to accomplish domestic laws, I made BCU settings with a Nanocom to get main beams as daily running lights. With this setting, lights are on seconds after engine start, if in neutral, or after taking lever out of parking position. This is enough to drive in the whole country... at...

    lock-up clutch 2004 D2

    I define myself as a newbie with automatic gearboxes, because I made the most of my driving with manual gearboxes. Recently I did a trip with my TD5 auto D2 and suffered from a gearbox temp light when doing great slopes with great height. This is, from 2400 meters to 4300 meters, for instance. I...

    Wading Plug - V8/R380

    Its code is 3290, but i think wading hole is only present in old V8's. My 300 TDI has its 2 holes, but in my experience is better to use them plugged, and periodically to inspect them. Difference between clutch chambers with dust and plugged ones is great.

    5 - speed transmission oil cooler?

    No D1's did have a cooler. UK or ROW. Only D2' with Td5 or V8 engines are equipped with. And some of them didn't. As they aren't automatic gearboxes don't include some engine outlast burning periods and heat is not a great trouble. My 98 300TDI is now 300.000km old, i did a complete...

    DI discouraged

    D1's door handles have no trouble with snow. First winter with a D2 and discovered what a better previous design... D2 Original bumpers can 't be considered to last more than a week. D1's cubby box has room for a lot of things. D2's cubby box is Nanocom's place. I love them, but if i needed to...

    DI Brakes Just Not Good Enough

    Make a servo diaphragm test. You can hear if it is leaking. A very very little hole reduces its boost and you feel poor brake effect. Regards
