    Problem: Diff lock switch not working properly. When I push the button the light on the dash only flashes. Can not engage diff lock. Light also starts flashing on its own after driving app 450Km and goes off as soon as vehicle has cooled down ie overnight. Does not come on normal city to city driving.
    Cause of problem(if known): Not known, probable defective sensor according to VW. Diff lock unit will have to be replaced.
    Specifics of repair work carried out: Not repaired. VW accepts no responsibility and no goodwill. Solely my problem.
    Cost of repair: App R11000
    Who did the repair: Not yet done, still fighting with VW as diff lock never used.
    Vehicle under warranty: N
    Was damage covered by warranty: N

    I am quite sure the user manual asks you to engage the difflock every 2 months. It becomes sticky. Same story with previus isuzu and ranger

    Never read about that anywhere, but will go and see if it is indeed the case.
