Good discussion about heaters! I'm gonna try the "Full Heat - Fan 3 or above" tomorrow and see if heat comes sooner. I just purchased my 2015 Jetta SE and I am hoping I have a factory heater in mine.
I piggy backed off this thread from aldebaran because I would like to know exactly where to look to find it (if its there at all)...I'm not sure but I think my vehicle was made by the good people below us in Mexico (if that indicates or has a factor in whether my vehicle has one or not).
I have a 1997 F-350 with a 7.3 diesel and I use the block heater as soon as it drops below 40* Fahrenheit! (when I plan on using it....long story for another day). I really like my heater in that vehicle mostly because I leave the defrost lever "ON" and when I go to start the vehicle the windshield is warm and clear! I mean it deters ice and snow...IF the snow does accumulate it slides right off easily.
SO, if someone can help me look by explaining what I'm looking for....That would be great! Not "that would be great" like from Office Space but That Would Be GREAT! like Thanks!!!

OK, I hopped in the buggy this morning with heat ON and Fan ON HIGH and all I did was froze my butt off due to the wind chill until the actual heat from the water temp rose. Maybe I did something wrong?

I have a 2015 with in line heater as it came from factory. They use inline heaters not block heater as they no longer have frost plugs because a block can still Crack from coolant freezing even with useless frost plugs as they don't alway pop out to save the block. I have seen it in the past on different engines, frost plugs still in place and a cracked block from freezing. Always test the coolant every year and change it every 3 years.
I Don't use the heater, as no electrical plug near my car where I park in my condo parking. The temperature this morning in Condon parking was -2 degs C outside -11. If the heaters are the same as my 2010 tdi I do believe they are only some 450 watts. 450 watts would be 3.75 amps at 120 volts

I think the word frost plug is incorrectly implemented. I'll admit I say it too.

Depending on block design it's used for the casting process. I've gotten a lot of sand washed out of my small block ****ty 350 I just redid.

Since vw uses a different design of block they can cast the aluminum without using 'frost' plugs.

Who runs straight water anyways?

You can tell pretty well when that auxiliary heater is on. The voltage drops from 14.5v to 14.7v down to 14.2v or lower. It draws 80amps... It's the single reason we have 140amp alternators now.

I don't think my car has it. It's the s trim. And it's not checked in the hvac module.

Stick your head in the footwell of the driver side and have a look at the center console. The auxiliary heater will be sandwiched directly in front of the heater core. On the Jetta you can clearly see the giant wires without removing any covers. I have an S model and it is present.

'15 s golf sportwagen.

Checking the option to turn it on in vcds throws codes.

No wires., no element.

Should I complain?

Wait! I was recalling the wrong module.

Is the error correlated to aux?

Once is engine module. Other is hvac. Code is from hvac module.

I can't see to apply the aux in the engine module. First it said rpm too high. So I killed engine, then it just said rejected.

There's yet another option for parking heater. Not sure what that is all about.

Ideas?

With the current settings, the code in memory, and the fact I'm driving 5 miles before any heat comes out... Do I have an issue or is this normal?

What's bidirectional climate?

The TDI comes with a 1,000 watt supplemental electric heating element in the HVAC system. It will turn on and off automatically to provide the most heat possible when it's cold.

Turning the fan up to high will only overwhelm this small heater with more cold airflow than it can handle.

For the best cabin heating experience, set the fan to 1 or 2 until the coolant temperature is sufficient to heat higher volumes of air.

Note that the 1 kW supplemental HVAC heater is NOT the same thing as an engine block heater (or inline heater, as some people like to call it). A block heater plugs into a wall outlet while the standard supplemental heater runs off of the vehicle's 12 volt electrical system. A block heater heats up the engine, while the supplemental HVAC heater heats up the vehicle's interior.

Parking heater is an optional Webasto Thermo Top C diesel-fired auxiliary heater. This option is most common in Europe and came standard in North America on V10 TDI Touaregs.

I didn't read that you had a Golf, sorry... tiny screen on phone. At one point I had four 2015 TDIs at my house, storing them for a friend waiting on dieselgate. A Passat and two Jettas had the heater. The Golf s did not... There was a blank plate in it's place.
It's very easy to see on the Mk6 Jetta. Not as easy to see on the mk7 golf. I took this photo to show you where it would be relative to the heater core. Good luck.
