2012 Tiguan 2.0 TSI

Asked by Apr 17, 2017 at 05:15 AM about the 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2012 Tiguan 2.0 TSI w/ 68k miles on it
was running fine Wednesday afternoon but
by Thursday morning it was not running. I
would get the car to idle very tough but
once I stepped on the accelerator the car
would shut off. Fast forward to Saturday I
switch out all 4 coils and still have the
same outcome. My buddy scanned the
vehicle and multiple random misfires
occurred in cylinders 1 and 4. Also code
"01259-Fuel Pump Relay-J17 Open
Circut/Short with Ground" comes up. At
this point my car sometimes won't even
turn over. What should I do? Some have
suggested that carbon build up may be
blocking my fuel injectors. Does anyone
agree? What could possiblt cause my
engine to shut off while stepping on the
accelerator?

Same thing happend To my 2012 cc Misfires and all that stuff replaced coil packs and plugs and I also did a carbon clean out at 70000 but right after they fixed all this stuff it happened again and I threw a code this time and ended up being a high pressure fuel pump and the fuel modulator had that replaced and no issues since hope this helps
