No, VW`s neither Audis 1.8T come factory with Turbo Timers.
Turbo Timers are aftermarket add on.
So in case you have a 02/03/04 1.8T and you install a Turbo Timer, your VW remote wont work to lock the doors neither to activate the factory alarm because the car computer sees the engine runing and does not allow the alarm receptor to work.
Installing the COMPANION gadget will solve this problemo.
The COMPANION unit interfase with the factory alarm allowing it to work and receive your VW remote signal to arm the factory alarm and lock the doors while the engine is running with the turbo timer.

For more info check: TT COMPANION

not bad a little expensive. now would the factory alarm, arm itself after the turbo timer shuts off<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Hello EastCoastDubz420, with the COMPANION, as soon as you get out of your car while your Turbo Timer is running your engine, you only has to press the lock button on your VW remote. You will lock the doors and hear the horn BEEP, confirming the alarm is armed.
If somebody force entry in your car while the TT is running your engine, the factory alarm will sound.

Also the COMPANION has a feature that if you FORGET to lock your door, when the TT shut off the engine, the COMPANIONwill relock the doors and arm the factory alarm.

Another feature the COMPANION has is that you will not have to install any additional switch to turn on or off the COMPANION when you take your car for service. Just turn off your Turbo Timer and the COMPANION will automatically turn off.

Whats the deal with the pre `02's? Do they work w/out the companion?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

OK, 02/03/04 VW´s and Audis use a newer Confort Control Unit that include a new inmobilizer III. So when you install a Turbo Timer in these cars. When the engine is running with your TT the your factory remote will not work neither the factory alarm. With this scenario you can lock manually your door but this will not arm the factory alarm neither set the deadlock.

So I develop the COMPANION unit to solve this problem


01 and olders VW & Audis, dont need the COMPANION. You only have to interfase the fuse#6 in order that the remote work while the engine is running with the TT
