    Another video of a cold start now that everything is primed and ready. This is on diesel that's a few months old.

    I agree re the sticky mess that pvc tape gets into after several years.

    I have just done a major tidy up in my dashboard / centre console after:
    1. A "qualified installer" cut into something like 13 speaker wires when he fitted my hands free kit (even though there are standard, no cut wiring harnesses for this.
    2. Another installer with "year's of experience installing car radios" randomly routed the aerial wires for my TPMS.
    3. A "vehicle outfitter" randomly ran wires for my aux fuel tank transfer pump and dual battery monitor.

    Where installers / oem have used pvc tape it's now getting a bit yucky. But I see that where self adhesive cloth tape has been used it has not suffered the same fate - so I used the cloth tape.

    Marius - your technical bravery & willingness to share just blows me away. I am in awe. Best of luck with the treg now.

    Congrats on getting your baby to run....

    Well Treg still at Bosch, the technical guy discovered that the solenoid cable was installed on the sump, also suspect that the starter (thick cable made a short somewhere while battery was still connected)

    On the initial first start, it just indicated engine starting, and there it stays.

    Computer box and comfort starter with key send to JHB to be tested, the comfort starter and key is functional, but they cannot test the computer box, say the only way to test it is to put it in another and try it..

    I also googled and see there is also a ECU (engine control unit) is this different from the computer, if so where is it located.

    Maybe the short from starter damaged the ECU?..

    Won't the VAG from Bosch indicate if the computer is faulty?

    what else could the short possibly damaged, not sure if Bosch tested all relays yet going there tomoro..

    I can't believe they connected that wire to the sump.

    I made no markings on removal of the wiring harnass as it seemed to me an obvious process of chronological order when installing.

    When installing that wire came last and it was very apparent that it must go to the starter solenoid.

    I'm not sure if damage was done but worthwhile checking the fuse under the passenger seat

    The round button in the middle of the picture must be pressed to reset the fuse

    Looks like these guys are doing more damage to your car all the time. When you say 'Bosch' is that a Bosch approved service centre or Bosch themselves? I've had very bad experience with Bosch service centers, - certainly don't think they are capable of repairing a Treg.

    Your vehicle could have many many electrical problems now. A short from the starter motor circuit would be quite a jolt!

    If possible I'd suggest you get more expertise involved at this stage. Them just guessing is going to get you nowhere. Perhaps also start a new thread for this.

    Makes my blood boil.

    I'm not a mechanic or expert by any means with no tertiary education or training in the mechanic trade.

    Just by working meticulously and checking the manual carefully I managed to swap the engine without major issues.

    How on earth does an RMI approved workshop with tons more experience than me and training make such rudimentary mistakes?

    It's to vomit from! And then we wonder why new'ish engines pack up and cars have hassles.

    I think when I can afford to buy new one day I will be present for every second they use to service my car to keep the so called "dealer warranty".

    Urrgh. I admit not all are bad, but very few workshops get compliments these days.

    /rant over!

    I saw a "ECU" looking box under the plastic trim at the bottom of the windscreen on the right hand side, behind the brake booster, near the right hand wiper mechanism.

    That is the engine ecu.

    But that needs input from the interior and kessy ecu for the comfort start and immobiliser commands.

    You should give your Treg to Tim Legge. he specializes in them.

    Does tim do amaroks as well? I am on 70k and will soon be looking for a non-oem workshop near midrand that can do good work at a reasonable price, and not tell me at every service that my brakes and discs need replacing.

    Cheers

    so marius,
    tell us what you will do for preventative maintenance on the R5, apart from normal oil changes?
    will you be replacing tandem pump at what interval
    injectors at what mileage
    etc
    all in desire to save costs etc

    10'000km oil change intervals
    2SO mix with diesel that should extend injector and tandem pump life.
