Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
I have a 2000 vw beetle that I have the clutch just replaced! The engine light was on prior to being put in the shop!!! I needed to have the car smog but the engine light has not come back on!!! it is my every day car and its been like 4 weeks since its been out of the shop!!! I am trying to get it code read but the system is not putting out any codes!! people keep telling me to keep driving it and it should come on!! I i drive bac and forth to work every day which is a 40min drive per way! the last time I have the code read when it was on it read a problem wit the 2nd air flow injection something like that I really cant remember because i lost the paper wit the code on it!! If someone is very familar wit the beetle and this code sounds familar i really need your help! I just need to find a way to get my ck engine light to come bac on so I can retreive the code !!! thanks for your time!
The engine light is only going to come on if the ECM detects a problem. The first time the light came on, a code was set. Now that the engine light isn't coming on isn't a bad thing. For what ever reason, the ECM is not detecting a problem so the engine light is not going to come on. Induce a code by unplugging the MAF sensor or MAP sensor and make the engine light come on. This will tell you that the ECM is in fact detecting problems and you engine light bulb isn't burnt out. When the engine light did come on, it could have been something that was intermittend and is not having a problem anymore.
