    Engine Coolant temp adaptation

    Hi, Did you sort this? I have similar issues with my SQ5 and suspect the shut off valve for the coolant in the ‘V’ of the engine. Thanks, Matt.

    SQ5 3.0 TDI Coolant Temp

    I think I've narrowed the fault down to the 'coolant regulator valve' which I don't think is closing. It's supposed to cut the circulation of coolant in the block and regulate it at 105 Deg C. The point of this is quicker warm up apparently. I've had a look at the valve with a borescope and the...

    SQ5 3.0 TDI Coolant Temp

    Thanks for the help all. The car needs approximately 10 miles of normal driving to warm up to 90 when the ambient is less than 15 Deg C, which does seem a little long. Thanks, Matt.

    SQ5 3.0 TDI Coolant Temp

    Hi, For cars with the 3.0 TDI engine, what does your coolant temperature gauge display when the ambient air temperature is 15 Deg C or above? I have an issue where below 15 Deg C, the coolant temp gauge sits at 90 and is steady which is fine, but at 15 or above, the gauge fluctuates down to 75...

    SQ5 BiTDI Coolant Temperature Fluctuates

    Hi, I have an issue with my 2013 SQ5 where sometimes the coolant temperature only gets to around 75 Deg C on the dash and fluctuates a little either side of this. Sometimes it'll be rock steady at 90 which obviously is fine. I've investigated a little with VCDS and it seems that the ECU is...

    SQ5 New owner of 2015 SQ5, couple of questions

    Hi C1CDG, I've had the open circuit code for the exhaust sound actuator in the past with my SQ5. It turned out to be both rear 'speakers' in the exhaust were shot. They produced no sound and measured a high resistance at the connectors either side (several kOhms). I had them replaced and the...

    Help Please Sat Nav issues

    Hi, This might sound like a daft fix but has the power to the head unit in the middle of the dash (where the SD/CD's go in) been disconnected at any point? I ask because I had the exact same issue and unplugging the Quadlock connector on the back of the unit and reconnecting sorted the issue...

    VAG DPF Android app

    Hi, I don't have this app, but I've noticed with VCDS that the threshold for an active regeneration is noted as 'charge limit for field regeneration'. For me, this value is currently 22.77 Grams. The limit depends on the oil ash residue, as mine recently lowered slightly when the oil value...
