P1296 Problem(vw jetta 2001 wolfsburg edition)

Hi! I have some problems my check engine light keeps coming up , i dont get hot air and my temperature gauge goes to 190 very slowly, takes me 20min driving on highway and than it starts to drop down all away to bottom. I change t stat, changed CTS, i just wonder what else could cause that! in one shop they said that wolfsburg edition has two water pums and they think one is broke down and thats why it doesnt overheat, because if i have one waterpump than it should overheat if its broke, right? So I dont know any suggestions!

There is a common fault with the cam belt driven waterpump on VAG engines as they use a plastic water-drive. The water-drive on the pump shaft breaks up or free and no longer circulates the water. Replace water pump.

SOURCE: vw jetta 2002 code p1296/po118

Both of these codes indicate trouble with the signal from the coolant temperature sensor.

So either the sensor is bad. The thermostat is not working properly and the coolant temperature is truly way out. The wiring to the sensor is short or open. The computer is bad and it is manifesting itself through this fault.

Does the car warm up properly? If it runs hot, or takes forever to warm up, this indicates a problem with the thermostat.

If the car runs at the proper temperature the next thing to look at is the coolant temp sensor and wiring. Some resistance values for VWs are here:

SOURCE: 01 jetta overheating on the highway

The most likely cause of this is the fan not kicking on... and the best place to start looking is the fuse for the rad fan (under the dash). If this is good check radiator thermo-switch... Observe the engine as it comes up to operating temp... if the fan does not kick on by about 200 degrees, disconnect the terminals at the switch and connect them together briefly. If the fan comes on then the switch is faulty, if not then suspect the cooling fan relay. If the fan runs normally but vehicle still overheats, the next thing to check is the T-stat. Feel the upper hose when at operating temp... it should be warm... if not remove the T-stat and reassemble... if the problem goes away it was your T-stat, if not it is either a bad pump, or a restricted (clogged) radiator. If the pump is not noisy or weeping coolant, it's probably OK... Hope this helps...;-)

VW Jetta 2001 wolfsburg edition 4 cylinder 1.8 turbo engine is having rough idle. check engine is on and it has a code for O2 sensor. the car drives fine in high speeds. the engine has not shut off only...


It sounds like either the mixture is bad or you need a new 02 sensor. If you have never replaced the o2 sensor I would get that done anyway. Next I would get a general tune up and have your throttle body cleaned.

2002 vw jetta engine code 1296. what does it mean.




My 2001 Jetta GLS Check engine light is on and I am getting 2 trouble codes P0171 and P1296. What does this mean? My temp gage is also reading nothing at all. 1 more thing I noticed when my low fuel light came on the other day my temp gage began to work but when I filled up with gas the temp gage went to zero again.

P1296 indicates that the car isn't warming up fast enough or at all. Determine if the gauge is faulty by checking the temp of the engine with an infrared thermometer. A healthy engine should operate at 190-200 deg. F fully warmed up. It may be that the gauge is accurate and your engine isn't reaching optimal temp because of a faulty thermostat. It also could be that the engine is actually warm and the gauge is wrong. Use the search feature, we've gone over this one a few times. Also note that P1296 has been mis defined a few times too. P0171 has been discussed here a million times. Check the trouble codes section and the search box.
,,,,, I pulled this off of the OBD home page, It is a close shot for your car, Hope it helps.

How to change an air filter on a 2008 jetta 2.0 turbo


On the VW Jetta MkV, the cabin filter is underneath the glove box. Access is gained by removing two plastic screws, gently pulling down a piece of foam insulation, and releasing a single clip to detach the filter. It (and some debris from it) fall easily onto the floor mat below. Insert the new cabin filter, replace the insulation, re-screw the screws, and within 3 minutes, you're back in business with fresh air and clean hands besides!
