How VW Parts Fail ~ 2.0t Fuel Pump Modules

Published on August 25, 2015 under Video

2.0t Fuel pump control moduleToday I am back to chat about more failed Volkswagen parts. We are looking at how the fuel pump control module fails on 2.0t engines. This module is on 2.0t gas engines from 2006 until now. There may be other engines that have this, or a similar module, installed. They will basically all fail in the same way.

    Thanks for the great info, I love your channel. I’m almost positive my control module has gone out, that or the HPFP. Regardless I’m going to start with the control module. I noticed that you said the module was located somewhere different on the Tiguans. Would you mind letting me know where exactly it is (and how to get to it). Thanks so much.

    Hello Mr. Humble Mechanic. I love all the videos you post and they are all awesome. Quick question regarding the fuel pump module. I have engine starting issues when hot on my 2.0 TSI engine. I highly doubt my fuel module has failed. However, when i checked under the rear seat the module seems to be in very good condition without any physical damage and no signs of overheating. Please advise the module can still fail?

      Do not buy this part from Oreillys. I replaced mine and it damn near set my car on fire… It lasted 3 days and burned a whole in my seat and melted the harness it connects to. When I went to return it for a refund, they only wanted to exchange it for a new one. After some arguing, I got my money back.
