A little Vag com help

Recommended Posts

Evening all.

EML popped up yesterday on the gti. Scanned and cleared the fault. Drove into work this morning. No problem. Went to drive home - EML back on.

Scan results ( I scan as a 6x as Ross tech list 6e as a type 6L only).

5 faults on engine

17911 load signal from alternator term DF p103 35-00 implausible signal

18010 power supply terminal 30 P1602 35-10 voltage too low intermittent.

17833 evap purge N80 p1425 short to ground

17935 camshaft riming adj. bank 1 N205 p1527 35-00 Short to ground

16394 Bank 1 camshaft A intake P0010 35-00 position actuator malfunction

 

1 other log of an alarm trigger 01463. But that could have been me at some point.

The last three I have seen before when my breather heater had taken out fuse 30 or 31.

Not seen the first two before. Any clues or advice?

Cheers - Chris.

clean up your terminals which will be corroding and then rescan.

the plugs at the front of the engine on the gearbox bracket are prone to corrosion and the bottom one (two pin) is the alternator.

Just to check - the terminals that may be corroding are in the fuse box arrangement above the gearbox? One has four fuses in, the other what looks like a jump start connection.

Contact cleaner in the multi pin connectors at the front, gearbox end of the engine?

the earths are in the inner wing, below the light, there's more in the scuttle.

Six months later... I'd better sort this.

This is on a GTI, so plugs I am looking for are the same - on the gearbox bracket? I thought it would be easy to trace this and find the earths etc. Found two facing forward by the passenger side light. One 13mm nut one 10mm with a brown on it. Stupidly hard to get in there.
