    As I asked what did you use to get that error code as I've never heard of 720292.

    That 720292 is his engine number Keith, not a fault code.
    As he said in post 1 , RAC man "completed a full diagnostic and nothing came up". I doubt that at the time the OP was paying much attention to what code reading equipment was in use. If you're really keen to find out, try contacting RAC to ask. I don't see it benefitting the OP much though.

    I personally don't have any particular knowledge about the BXE engine to suggest what might be causing these cut-outs, but in general, crank sensors can misbehave without throwing up fault codes, and can do so in such a way that they only play up when hot. I do have some Golf circuit diagrams if that turns out to be useful.

    Maybe 'Crasher' will pop back in with some useful, specific knowledge.

    Thanks Pete is was a bit early when I posted that. They need to post the engine code not the number as that confuses posts.

    The RAC use a good generic scanner because of all the vehicles they deal with.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thanks for this Pete - certainly another thing to consider should replacing the relay not work.

    Silly question alert - I've been phoning around to try and find a suitable relay, a common question i get is what ampage does it need to be - does this vary from model to model or engine size? I've not had the opportunity to take it out yet - (need to find it first!) the mechanic I use has been in touch with VW direct but they don't appear to have been much help - is it something that can be searched/traced simply by them looking up my registration number/details?

    Thanks everyone for your input so far!

    I might be able to help you find the part number, but it will almost certainly be easier to read it off the existing item, provided access isn't too horrible.
    I'm not sure that a general purpose relay will do the job. T

    here will be a big (font) number on the top face, then a 9-digit number, with possibly some letters after, on one side of the relay, probably. The 9 digit one (plus letters) is what you need.
    Just realised you'll need to know which one is the fuel pump relay. I'll just try to find that info for you, might be a little while as I'm on lunch.

    Hi all, so an update - replaced the fuel pump relay and still have the same issue

    In the attached picture my mechanic and I noticed that the big black relay (marked 100) was running very hot - too hot to touch once the engine had cut out so going to try swapping this, although I am not convinced....Attachment 6495

    I checked on the suggestion about the camshaft sensor - this has already been replaced previously so unlikely to be the issue.

    All of this will have exhausted my mechanics knowledge of what to do/check (and he used to work for VW, Audi and BMW!) and has suggested it needs to go to a VW main dealer - I am more than happy to be convinced otherwise. They obviously have access to the centre at Milton Keynes where they collate all of the issues experienced nationally and may be able to offer a solution if it has happened elsewhere.

    Already £450 in to trying to sort this issue!!

    Attachment not working for me. Where is this 100 relay, on the same line as the fuel pump one? Or??
