    Tiguian Dsg 4motion 2018 key issue


    I have a 2018 Tiguan and i recently pruchased a new gearbox from VW due to driver negligence breaking the dog leg on the gearbox,

    The issue i have that in normal practice the ignition key would only come out of the ignition lock when in park, yet mine comes ot in any setting, eg, drive etc, i took the vehicle to VW who said that the Gearbox was locked and as such they reprogrammed both keys and unlocked the gearbox, but still the key can be taken out in either drive gear selected,

    any susgestions as at this stage VW have let me down

    You seem to be saying that after 3rd party fitted a new genuine VW gearbox, the gearbox was locked (according to VW). VW unlocked the gearbox and reprogrammed the keys. Are there any other fault codes on the car?

    There is a US only based recall about to be implemented which could have a bearing on this, something is wrong with the key interlock set up.

    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.
