Two things come to mind. 1. Blown fusses. Maybe the car got short circuit somewhere. 2. Faulty ECU. It's either tosted and need replacement or maybe just reprogramming. Either way you should invest in vagcom from rosstech. I have the same car and I can tell for sure that the ECU is the same for all models. With vagcom u can recode it and see if the problem persist. Hope this helps
