EML on GTI - Intake cam adjuster malfunction

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Engine light has been on in my GTI since I bought it 4 years ago, it hasn't been an issue up until now because the MOT regulations are changing so there can be no engine management light on to pass.

After reading through the forums for the codes I read i found that removing the connector for the oil breather pipe may resolve some issues. After doing this and replacing fuse 30 (the 5A one - kept blowing before) the fuse now remains intact. Took it for a spin and restarted the car and the light came on again..

Now showing codes:

16394 Bank. 1 Camshaft Intake P0010 Position actuator malfunction

17748- camshaft position sensor/engine speed sensor; incorrect correlation

Not really sure what to do next as in the receipts i got with the car it says that there was a used camshaft adjuster unit fitted by VW in the past, maybe this is causing an issue? Or possibly there is an issue with the sensors/wiring. Any advice would be appreciated!
