  • 2005 vw touareg 4.2

    What fuse number and location controls left front and back turn signals?

  • Ignition refuses to come up (no light displaying on my dashboard) hence, car won’t start. I have tried checking and fixing all fuses but to no result.

    Though when Key is inserted into the Volkswagen Touareg 2004, I hear it usual ‘Clingy’ sound; telling it’s recognises the key perhaps. Yet the vehicle won’t turn on ignition neither start engine (no single light appears on dashboard)

    NB: All light components are working just fine except for the ignition.

    What could be the possible problem and solution?

  • I’m trying to find out where the relay for the horn on a 2012 VW Toureg is located. My horn doesn’t work, and the fuse is OK. Can anyone help please


  • Hay
    Where is the fuse of boost solonoids of touareg R5 TDI 2006
