    Toureg Aux heater

    Tip maybe ????? I had/have an issue with the auxiliary heater, it seemed to have a mind of its own when to activate. Its supposed to kick in at 5* degrees but mine was draining the battery constantly, dashboard left fusebox, pull fuse nr 4, no problems so far. I"ll keep posted if anything changes. S.

    Probably glow plug failure, a fault code scan should reveal the problem.

    I thought it had it"s own fuel feed to pre-heat the coolant for engine and AC, I"ll get it checked out next weekend, thanks. S.

    Yes it does, the Webasto additional heater ignites the fuel using a glow plug which is replaceable and comes as part of the combustion chamber insert.

    As suggested: You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.
