When Volkswagen’s Coolant Tester Wont Work
Volkswagen has been criticised for a bug in the CoolantTester, the company’s water pump that monitors air pressure in the system and lets you know if your tank is running low.
The company says the fix is only a cosmetic fix, but we’re still waiting to see how the CoolantsTester reacts to the real-world effects of the bug, which affects up to 40 million vehicles worldwide.
“It’s not just that VW’s Coolants Tester has been hacked,” said Paul Mittermeier, director of the Cooling Technology Project at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Instead, VW is blaming an overheating fan, which is a common feature in many car-makers’ systems.
VW is also blaming the cooling fan itself for the problem.
We are aware of the issue affecting the Coolats Tester and have immediately launched a fix,” a spokesperson said.
However, that’s not the only problem.
Volkswagen’s latest leak could also affect other parts of the system, like the battery.
According to Volkswagen, the bug was first spotted by Volkswagen dealers in the US.
As well as causing the Coolantes Tester to not function, the issue affects the battery of all VW models in the VW brand, including the Golf, Passat and Audi A3.
It’s unclear how widespread the problem is in the United States.
This is the latest in a series of problems that VW has had to deal with in the last few months, and it’s likely that this one will be a major sticking point for the company.
Volkswagen was forced to recall more than 400,000 vehicles around the world last year, with the majority of the affected models including the VW Golf, Golf GTI and Passat, as well as the Audi A4.
In the UK, the carmaker also has to recall nearly 40,000 cars in the UK due to the same problem.
In the US, Volkswagen has already recalled more than 2.5 million vehicles, with many of the cars being the latest models introduced in 2017.
Despite the issue being in the public eye, the VWs Coolants product isn’t affected by the leak.
While it is likely that Volkswagen will address the issue soon, it’s unlikely to solve the whole problem.
There are still millions of vehicles on the road, and even if VW fixes the problem, it may take several months for all affected cars to be returned to normal.
