It's just the light bar with 15-70-15 Flood/Spot/Flood goes beyond the ditches. Personally, I like the look of the Hella 500's I had on there originally, but the light bar is literally a night and da ...

I have a Passat tank on my 1.8t, same built in sensor. I would suspect the connection where it's tied into the stock wiring first. Then expand my search to the entire run back to the dash. Good luck.

shadetreetim, I like that setup. How do you mount the Engel cooler so that it doesn't fall down while driving?

Thanks. I used turnbuckles to tie it down to the front seat belt mounts.
