I have a 2014 Jetta TDI. Usually when my car goes into park from driving it automatically unlocks. Now it unlocks after I turn it off. Anyway I can change it back to unlocking in park?

Hi. I’ve been reading your posts about if the CTS in disconnected from the ECU it makes the timing very advanced. I currently have a short somewhere in my CTS wiring path to the ECU. I hope to address that soon. In vcds when I go into basic settings my timing value on the graph is 255 but in my measuring blocks group 000 and group 004 it is in normal spec. Which one should I trust?

Hello greengeeker, this is Chris and I have a 01 tdi bug that's acting up and beyond my knowledge.
Car still runs but has a snapping whining possible bearing noise. I'm not able to diagnose much at this time, my back is out. I could line up a car trailer if you're available anytime. Feel free to message back here or fire me a call or text at 763 528 5250. Thanks much!
