    My VW CC 2009 Sports has been acting funny and now it won’t start. I was only having the P2015 intake manifold check engine light and was driving fine. Even though i planned to replace the intake manifold and runner position sensor. The No start looks more like a fuel pump issue. It cranks and behaves like its about to start, but wont start. It looks like its the engine is starved of fuel. I checked the load reduction relay and the fuel pump relay. I want to check the transfer feul pump to see if i get supply to that point but wasnt able to take out my seat to make room. However, i become discouraged as i started getting different check engine lights; P0444 Evap emission system purge control valve circuit open came first, then P0030 H02S Heater Control circuit bank 1 sensor 1, then P2294 fuel pressure regulator 2 control circuit. Then my front window driver side started malfunctioning, whenever i try to crank, the window rolls down a little and kept doing that, then it would not raise up more than the level it rolls down to if i try to raise it with the raise button. It oprerates up and down but just wont go up beyond a certain level. I hear relay click when i operate other windows but i dont hear for this window but it operates. Another thing i noticed is that even if i disconnect the window raise relay, the window still operates. All these make me just think the ECM might be malfunctioning and discouraged me from even making the effort to check fuel transfer pump

    It was a great questionnaire. I found it interesting and it helped to enhance the knowledge that you might skip. Very well written in a simple and understandable manner. See you soon with a new post.
