    Where do you live, you need someone with VAG-COM to read your fault codes and tell you what is faulty. Its likely to be a sensor of some sort.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Post in the VAG-COM forum and ask if there is anyone in your area with it, there usually is!
