Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Notes on push-starting

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

As a basic principle, the vehicle should not be tow-started. Use jump leads to start the engine instead   .

For technical reasons, the following vehicles cannot be tow-started:

  • Vehicles with an automatic gearbox.
  • If the vehicle battery has discharged, the engine control units will not function properly.

However, if the vehicle still has to be tow-started (manual gearbox):

  • Engage 2nd or 3rd gear.
  • Keep the clutch pressed down.
  • Switch on the ignition and the hazard warning lights.
  • Once both vehicles are in motion, release the clutch.
  • As soon as the engine starts, press the clutch and put the gear into neutral. This helps to prevent driving into the towing vehicle.

NOTICE

When tow-starting, unburnt fuel could enter the catalytic converter and damage it.
