1)Started up my NB Friday, and the wagger lite came on! It won't deploy manually, and does not come up at speed. I am guessing it might be a fuse. Any thoughts? Where would that fuse be, I have not found it yet. I don't care about the TW working since I have a factory(?) wing, just want the damn idiot lite off!

2) How long should I let the car run so the turbo cools down?


Thanx all and Happy New Year!

Answeres:
1: I looked through my bently manual, and i dind't see a fuse or relay anywhere for the spoiler, so my best guess is to find someone with a vag-com cable to see what the lights is trying to tell you.

2: You hsould let the turbo cool down at least a minute or two before shutting the engine off. This allows the turbo time to be slooped down and be cooled by the oil before the oil stops pumping.

Just to help with any confusion. Did you purchase the aftermarket Tailwagger module? The Tailwagger is a module sold by an individual (nothing to do with VW) that allows you to control when the spoiler deploys and retracts.

The spoiler itself is not called a tailwagger, it's just a spoiler. As for the light. That light will come on and be steady if there is a problem somewhere in the system. So if it's on, there's a problem, and it will not deploy or retract at the appropriate speeds.

Sorry, yhea it's just the factory setup. I need to stop calling it a tail wagger:eek: . I know that I have a problem, just hopeing it is a fuse, but can't find it. It was working fine, then one morning the lite came on, and stayed on. I am fine with it not working, just want to know why, and make the idiot lite go out. Thanx

On the turbo cooldown, it's only really necessary if you've been cruising at highway speeds, or have been very, uh, spirited... :D Normal around-town driving doesn't always require it, but it never hurts.

I usually open the door and let the chime stop before shutting down the motor.
